Context Readings

The Heavenly Ministry Of The New Covenant

14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Holy Spirit [or, His eternal Spirit] offered Himself without [moral] blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from deeds which lead to [spiritual] death to serve the living God? 15 Therefore, Christ is the Mediator of a New Agreement, so that [all] those people who have been called [by God] can receive the promise of the never ending inheritance. [This is possible because] a death has taken place for the redemption of [people's] sins who lived under the first Agreement. 16 For where a will exists, it is necessary to prove the death of the person who made it [i.e., in order to benefit by its provisions].
