> But Jesus entered once for all, his own blood securing an eternal redemption, once for all (!), in a body prepared for him, choosing to do his Father’s will (10.9).
> And he’s the only high priest who SITS DOWN! Job done! It is Finished!

Let us

hold fast the confession of our hope

without wavering

, for he who promised is


> And

let us

consider how to

stir up one another

Let us…
