Hebrews 9:1-22

07.14.2011

Having been derailed from my blogging plan by last week’s vacation and this week’s work catch-up responsibilities, I thought I’d bring us back on pace in one fell swoop by combining last Thursday’s Hebrews 9:1-10 post and this week’s Hebrews 9:11-22 post.

Both passages are part of the author’s argument about Jesus’ sacrifice superceding the sacrificial elements of the Old Covenant.  But the whole topic seemed related to an interesting post I read this week on Political Jesus, where Chad suggests that sacrifice is not something God established but a practice started by humans that God later clarified and regulated.  It’s an interesting idea, and I can definitely see parallels elsewhere (like one commenter mentions, monarchy).  Thoughts?

Back to regular schedule next week, I promise.
