Commentary: The first two chapters compare the old covenant with the new covent. Careful study shows the freedom offered by the new covenant, as the old covenant was limiting. The blood of Jesus Christ, a sinless man who freely chose to die, sealed the new covenant, which offers access to God to all believers. Jesus Christ was the ultimate sacrifice who removed the stain of sin. Chapter 10 continues the explanation of Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice and its importance and finality. We must always be learning, growing, strengthening, and developing our relationship with the Lord.
Focus Verses: 10:26-29 Why is it important to be continually learning, growing, strengthening, and developing our relationship with the Lord? What are the benefits? What happens if we do not?
