(7) SPEAKING OF THE LEVITICAL PRIESTHOOD HE SAITH:
"They truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason
of death: but this Man, because He continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood"
(Heb. 7: 23, 24).
(8) SPEAKING OF THE HIGH PRIEST "S WORK HE SAITH:
"Into the second (tabernacle) went the high priest alone once every year, not without
blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people."
"But Christ being come an High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more
perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; neither by the
blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained (found) aionian redemption for us" (Heb. 9: 7-12).
(9) SPEAKING OF THE SACRIFICES HE SAITH:
"Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast Thou prepared Me . . . . .
we are sanctified through (by) the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all"
(Heb. 10: 5-10).
(10) SPEAKING OF FAITH HE SAITH:
"By faith Abel, Enoch, Noah", etc.
"Looking off unto Jesus the Captain and Perfecter of faith" (Heb. 11: and 12:).
(11) SPEAKING OF THE MEDIATOR HE SAITH:
Israel "entreated that the Word should not be spoken to them any more (through
Moses the mediator)."
"But ye are come . . . . . to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant" (Heb. 12: 19-24).
(12) SPEAKING OF THE LEADERS HE SAITH:
"Remember your leaders. Obey your leaders."
"The Lord Jesus that great Shepherd of the sheep" (Heb. 13: 7-21).
Shadow gives place to substance, the transient to the abiding, the old to the new, and
throughout, CHRIST IS ALL.

barest outline, the structure of the epistle as a whole, the details of which can be pieced
together by the reader from the chapters dealing with the passages themselves:
