Hebrews 10 Summary

Hebrews 10 has three main sections.

First it emphasizes that there's nothing you can do to pay for your sin:

It's impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. (v4)

There's no amount of sacrifices you can make, good deeds you can do, or penance you can offer to pay the overwhelming cost of your sin to a Holy God.

This is why we understand that we're saved by grace alone.

Second, this chapter goes on to indicate the one and only hope that people have to be reconciled with God:

We have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all (v10).

This is why we often say that our salvation comes through Christ alone.
