Hebrews 8:1-6 (New Revised Standard)

View In My Bible
1 Now the main point in what we are saying is this: we have such a high priest, one who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, 2 a minister in the sanctuary and the true tent a that the Lord, and not any mortal, has set up. 3 For every high priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices; hence it is necessary for this priest also to have something to offer. 4 Now if he were on earth, he would not be a priest at all, since there are priests who offer gifts according to the law. 5 They offer worship in a sanctuary that is a sketch and shadow of the heavenly one; for Moses, when he was about to erect the tent, b was warned, "See that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown you on the mountain." 6 But Jesus c has now obtained a more excellent ministry, and to that degree he is the mediator of a better covenant, which has been enacted through better promises.
