Hebrews

A Better Hope

Hebrews 7;18-19

Drawing near to God is the essence of Christianity as compared with the Levitical system, which kept people outside His presence.  As believer priests, we are to draw near to God-that is characteristic of priesthood.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Hebrews 7:19.

Encourage, comfort, and strengthen.

Hebrews 10;25b

Exhortation takes the form of encouragement, comfort, warning, or strengthening.  There is an eschatological urgency to the exhortation which requires an increased activity as the coming of Christ approaches.
