By the way which he dedicated for us (hn enekainisen hmin odon). This "new" (prospaton, freshly killed, newly made, from pro and the root of pato, in the papyri, only here in N.T.) and "living" (zwsan) Jesus opened ("dedicated") for us by his Incarnation and Death for us. Thus he fulfilled God's promise of the "New Covenant" ( Hebrews 8:7-13 ) in Jeremiah. The language is highly symbolic here and "through the veil" here is explained as meaning the flesh of Christ, his humanity, not the veil opening into heaven ( Hebrews 6:20 ). Some do take "veil" here as obscuring the deity of Christ rather than the revelation of God in the human body of Christ ( John 1:18 ; John 14:9 ). At any rate because of the coming of Christ in the flesh we have the new way opened for access to God ( Hebrews 2:17 ; Hebrews 4:16 ).
