But in those sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year after year. read more.

When he says above, "Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sin-offerings you did not desire nor did you take delight in them" (which are offered according to the law), then he says, "Here I am: I have come to do your will."

For by one offering he has perfected for all time those who are made holy.
