The apostle, having declared the Old-Testament dispensation antiquated and vanishing away, proceeds to let the Hebrews see the correspondence there was between the Old Testament and the New; and that whatever was excellent in the Old was typical and representative of the New, which therefore must as far excel the Old as the substance does the shadow.

Hebrews 9 Commentary (1) âTHEN VERILY THE FIRST COVENANT HAD ALSO ORDINANCES OF DIVINE SERVICE, AND A WORLDLY SANCTUARY.â The exegesis is: 1. Christ's atonement had the effect also of casting Satan out of heaven ( Luke 10:18 , John 12:31 , compare Hebrews 2:14 ). . However, the content of the book, including the frequent references to the Hebrew Scriptures, makes it clear â¦ Before the inheritance by the New Testament (for here the idea of the "INHERITANCE," following as the result of Christ's "death," being introduced, requires the Greek to be translated "testament," as it was before covenant) could come in, there must be redemption of (that is, deliverance from the penalties incurred by) the transgressions committed under the first testament, for the propitiatory sacrifices under the first testament reached only as far as removing outward ceremonial defilement. No longer in the alien "form of a servant," but in His own proper glory. (11-22) The necessity, superior dignity, and power of his priesthood and sacrifice. Christ, having undertaken to be our High Priest, could not enter into heaven till he had shed his blood for us; and none of us can enter, either into God's gracious presence here, or his glorious presence hereafter, but by the blood of Jesus.
