Hebrews 10:14- Conclusion
The perfection of Christ’s atoning work has been demonstrated by the text of Hebrews 10:14, which teaches that Christ has completed God’s plan of salvation, bringing “those who are being sanctified” into a perfect standing before God. The perfection of Christ’s atoning work has been demonstrated by the place of Hebrews 10:14 in redemptive history, which tells of the inauguration of the new covenant by the “one offering” of Christ that brought about a condition in which the Lord places His laws on the hearts and writes them on the minds of His new covenant people, and He forgives the sins of His new covenant people. The perfection of Christ’s atoning work has been demonstrated by the function of Hebrews 10:14 within the whole canon of Scripture, in which the “one offering” of Christ is the antitype of the old covenant system of offerings.
The “one offering” of Christ upon the cross is perfect in that it accomplished what the old covenant offerings could never accomplish. This offering has secured specific effects– forgiveness of sins, the law written on hearts and minds– that will be certainly applied– for this offering is not faulty as were the old covenant offerings– to a particular people– those brought into the new covenant by the blood of Christ.
“For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.”Explore posts in the same categories: Doctrinal Issues, Exegetical Issues
