Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 9:24


9:24 For Christ did not enter into the holy place made with hands - He never went into the holy of holies at Jerusalem, the figure of the true tabernacle in heaven, #Heb 8:2|. But into heaven itself, to appear in the presence of God for us - As our glorious high priest and powerful intercessor.
