The end of Hebrews chapter 12 is one last comparison between the old covenant and the new one. The author explains the differences by comparing two mountains, Mount Sinai and Mount Zion.  One is terrifying, separate, and unapproachable. The other is inviting, filled with celebration, and grace. Then the author gives the final warning that you should not ignore this invitation.

A lot of New Testament Christians have an Old Testament hangover. They continue to live as old covenant followers even though the sacrifice Jesus offered was once and for all.

Have you ever felt far from God? Imagine what it would be like to be separated by a tent and a courtyard where only the priests could be next to the place where God dwelt, and where only the high priest could enter that most holy place once a year. Even then it didn't forgive all their sins, it just covered them.  The author shows how Jesus fulfills all of the shadows and delivers a far better eternal redemption.

Is the Old Covenant obsolete? Well Hebrews 8 says it's becoming obsolete, because Jesus is the real thing that fulfills the copies and shadows that the Old Covenant displayed. In this message we look at why the Old Covenant didn't work, and how Jesus is a better High Priest, a better sacrifice, and has better promises.

Palm Sunday reminds us of the hope of the Messiah coming to be our King. Hebrews 7 reminds us that Jesus is not only a King, but that He is a King who came to die as our Great High Priest. Understanding that Jesus is fully, perfectly, equally, and simultaneously Priest and King is foundational to understanding our Savior and His finished work on the cross.
