Jesus Christ is the very radiance of the glory of God because he is God come to earth. Jesus Christ is the great high priest because he is the sacrifice for sin that would satisfy the holy demand of God. Now in our current passage, Jesus Christ is the only Savior because he ultimately and finally dealt with sin. But how are we able to identify the consistency of the Old Testament language (Leviticus 16:2) with the New Testament finished work of Jesus Christ? The following progressive truth standards demonstrate the absolute superiority of the Christ who is clearly at the center of Christmas.
- The delay to take away sins is by the continuous sacrifices of animals – Hebrews 10:1-4
- The decisiveness to take away sins is by the single sacrifice of Christ – Hebrews 10:5-18
