For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
(who serve as an example and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern showed unto thee in the mount);
Which was a figure of that time present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience,
which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of the Christ.
But in these sacrifices each year the same remembrance of sins is made.
For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness of it;
The Holy Spirit signifying in this, that the way into the sanctuary was not yet made manifest, as long as the first tabernacle was yet standing:
For by one offering he has perfected for ever those that are sanctified.
