Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 13:10


13:10 On the former part of this verse, the fifteenth and sixteenth depend; on the latter, the intermediate verses. We have an altar - The cross of Christ. Whereof they have no right to eat - To partake of the benefits which we receive therefrom. Who serve the tabernacle - Who adhere to the Mosaic law.


People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 13:10


Heb 13:10 We have an altar. We have no need of the temple altar for we have an altar, that on which Christ offered himself, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle, to which those who cling to the tabernacle service have no right. Christ's altar implies the abolition of the tabernacle and the old covenant. Those who cling to these show their lack of faith in Christ.

Discussion for Hebrews 13:10

  • Kathleen Samuel Njoroge for verse 10
    We (of the Covenant of Grace,of the New Wine, of the Resurrection of Christ, of the Messiah who has come in the flesh) we have JESUS CHRIST, our High Priest and ALTAR who has given his body as a living sacrifice who has called us from the LAW TO GRACE. To those who know Him and are aware that He has already fulfilled the plan of redemption we can eat at this altar. But those who chose to still server in the tabernacle, the tent of the wilderness, they do not yet know Him for what he is but are still serving by the law and have refused THE RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT COMES BY FAITH THAT HE IS ALREADY WITH US.
