All the priests stand at their duties every day, offering over and over again the same sacrifices which are quite incapable of taking sins away.
He, on the other hand, has offered one single sacrifice for sins, and then taken his place forever, at the right hand of God, where he is now waiting until his enemies are made into a footstool for him.
By virtue of that one single offering, he has achieved the eternal perfection of all whom he is sanctifying. When all sins have been forgiven, there can be no more sin offerings.
It speaks of the limits of the Jewish cult, arguing, asserting, that the worship of the Temple simply fails to deliver. Salvation from sin is won by Christ. It is in him that we are set free, and achieve reconciliation with God.
In the Christian cult the same must be said of prayers, traditions, pilgrimages and Jubilee Years. If external to Christ, if used as ‘magic’ they can be worse than useless. They must be ‘used’ not to try to change God but with an acknowledgement we are using them to change us, using them to help us to deeper relationship with Christ and with each other, that we might be changed by him.
