Bible Commentary for Hebrews 10:21

Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 10:21


10:19 Having finished the doctrinal part of his epistle, the apostle now proceeds to exhortation deduced from what has been treated of #Heb 5:4|, which he begins by a brief recapitulation. Having therefore liberty to enter, -

10:20 By a living way - The way of faith, whereby we live indeed. Which he hath consecrated - Prepared, dedicated, and established for us. Through the veil, that is, his flesh - As by rending the veil in the temple, the holy of holies became visible and accessible; so by wounding the body of Christ, the God of heaven was manifested, and the way to heaven opened.

10:22 Let us draw near - To God. With a true heart - In godly sincerity. Having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience - So as to condemn us no longer And our bodies washed with pure water - All our conversation spotless and holy, which is far more acceptable to God than all the legal sprinklings and washings.

10:23 The profession of our hope - The hope which we professed at our baptism.
