People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 10:4


Heb 10:4 For [it is] not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. The blood of bulls and goats, the animals offered in the sacrifices, had no power to cleanse from sin. In their essence the only real efficacy of the bloody sacrifices of the altar was the moral effect upon the people and the fact that they pointed forward to the Lamb of God.

    Linda, It's true; V36 "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sin," V.27 "But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries."
