Hi Deborah
Thank you for your reply.

.
 5  Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: note

 6  In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

 7  Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.

 8  Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law       


V 5 The body of our Lord was planned from the foundation of the world to remove sin caused by satan through Adam no other sacrifice could achieve this only the lamb of God.
V 6 God had no pleasure in the temple sacrifices they could never eradicate sin from the world some thing better was needed the next verse tells us what it was.
V 7 It is the body of our Lord Jesus the OT  is full of prophecies concerning our Lord of his coming of his sacrifice his resurrection all of which God had planned in advance.
V 8 here we see that none of the temple sacrifices were good enough the question is why were they needed I think that our Lords sacrifice was all of them rolled into one.
We know our Lord complied with law and was sinless.

Love and Peace
Dave

v5-7 are a quote from Psalm 40 - the end of the sacrificial system had actually been prophesied by David!

v8-10 are the writer's interpretation, and should be taken together.

v5-7 David owed a debt of gratitude to God that no sacrifice could be great enough to fulfil. But a life of obedience is a kind of sacrifice - and David's heartfelt desire to obey God foreshadowed the perfect obedience of the Son as He embarked on His mission to rescue the human race.

Hi Deborah
Thank you for your reply and reference to the psalms.



 9  Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.

 10  By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

 11  And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:

 12  But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God       


V 9 Here we see our Lord taking on the full responsibility of salvation knowing full well what it would entail even death on the cross.
V 10 here we see the one time sacrifice for the sins of the world now can we give enough thanks for this wonderful gift.
V 11 Here we see the comparison between the old covenant and the new and through his sacrifice the old covenant was cancelled with its sacrifice and service.
V12 here we see the result of his one time forever sacrifice to sit at the right hand of God from there he will come again to judge the quick and the dead.

Love and Peace
Dave

v8 The paradox of the Law was that, even though God had commanded animal sacrifices to be made, they were not acceptable to Him as a means of atonement. The blood of Jesus succeeded where animal blood had failed, because He was a willing, rational and morally perfect Victim.
v9 Because in His perfect obedience He fulfilled all the requirements of the Law, He was able to make His human body a sin-offering on our behalf, and thus set the entire sacrificial system of the Law aside. For this reason, Christianity is not just a 'reformed' variety of Judaism, but something radically new.
v10 We have been cleansed by Christ's death and made fit to remain in the presence of a holy God for ever. We are His holy people, no matter how badly we have behaved in the past, or what sins we might commit in the future. 

Now we leave Psalm 40, and the writer goes on:
v11,12 So we can see that the priesthood of Christ is very different from the Levitical priesthood. For over a thousand years, those priests had been making sacrifices every day, as the Law commanded. Because their work was never-ending, they were always on their feet. But we are told that our High Priest is seated - and that can only mean that His sacrificial work is finished. He has made just one offering, and it has been accepted.
Now since it is an honour even to stand in God's presence, how much greater must be the honour given to Christ, who is seated! (Psalm 110:1)
v13 "and since that time He waits for His enemies to be made His footstool." (The writer is still thinking of Psalm 110:1) Nothing and no-one can prevent Christ's work from being completed.
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength." (Mark 12:30)
