Bible: Hebrews 9:11-15

Christ’s Service in the Heavenly Sanctuary

9:11 But now Christ has come 1  as the high priest of the good things to come. He passed through the greater and more perfect tent not made with hands, that is, not of this creation, 9:12 and he entered once for all into the most holy place not by the blood of goats and calves but by his own blood, and so he himself secured 2  eternal redemption. 9:13 For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a young cow sprinkled on those who are defiled consecrated them and provided ritual purity, 3  9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our 4  consciences from dead works to worship the living God.

9:15 And so he is the mediator 5  of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the eternal inheritance he has promised, 6  since he died 7  to set them free from the violations committed under the first covenant.
