Strength to your knees

There are witnesses about us like a cloud. Witnesses can be of two types: those witnesses who tell of something that they have seen and other witnesses who watch what is happening. The writer may mean both. The heroes of faith in chapter 11 of Hebrews are examples of those who trusted God. Their example encourages us to trust God in the same way. God did not fail them.

How Excellent is your Name

Psalm 8 is the second messianic psalm after Psalm 2. This is evident from its quotation in Hebrews 2, which clarifies that this psalm is about the Lord Jesus. Psalm 8 is the first song of praise in Psalms. This psalm is the only one addressed to God alone. This is remarkable because it is about the true Man, the Son of Man, Who came to glorify God only after He fell into the earth like the grain of wheat and died (John 12:24).

Jesus as the High Priest

Jews had priests from the family of Aaron who was of the levitical order. The high priest is expected to enter the holiest place of the temple once a year.

Christ the great high priest lives in the actual presence of God forever. Levitical priests offered animal sacrifices, but Christ offered Himself. He did not make this offering as a Levitical priest (for he was not of the family of Aaron), but the work of the Levitical priests pictured His work. The sacrifices they offered were a picture of Christ’s sacrifice of Himself. They served as a representation and shadow of Christ and divine things.
