The book of Hebrews is a message to Christians to hold fast and not give up. The writer of Hebrews has moved into describing the superior covenant that we enjoy so that we will not weaken in our faith. The author’s way to deepen and strengthen faith is to give us a greater vision of Jesus. As we have seen in the last couple of chapters, the arguments the author uses are rather dense. Remember that the author warned about the dullness of the hearers as he approached these discussions. He told them they would have difficulty understanding, not because the material is hard, but because they were dull of hearing (5:11-14). Hebrews 9 also has the same density in the presentation of the arguments. As we go through this chapter we will summarize the main points of each paragraph so we can understand the superior covenant we have in Christ.
