For if that first covenant had been faultless, then no place would have been sought for a second. Hebrews 8:7

In the previous verse, the author had contrasted the ministry of the Old Covenant to that of the new by saying of Jesus, “But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.”

Now, concerning that “better covenant,” he says, “For.” He is building a logical case against observing the Law of Moses.Read the rest

For if He were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the law; Hebrews 8:4

Again, the author begins with “For.” One thought builds upon the next to establish his case. He has just stated that the purpose of a priest is “to offer both gifts and sacrifices.” He then said, based on that thought, that it is “necessary that this One also have something to offer.” What he is saying concerning the Levitical priesthood is that they, in fact, had something to offer.Read the rest
