Counted Common

To reckon Christ’s blood as something “common” is the same thing as saying that it is unclean or defiled and implies that Christ was a sinner and a blemished sacrifice.  Such thinking is truly blasphemous.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 10:29.

Praise and Thanks

IMG_8129

As seen throughout the book of Hebrews, sacrifices were extremely important under the Old Covenant.  Under the New Covenant, God desires the praise and thanksgiving of His people rather than offerings of animals or grain.  Since New Testament believers are priests (1 Peter 2:5,9), they have offerings of praise and thanks to God (Romans 12:1).
