Paul has gotten all old testamenty on us in this letter: Moses, tabernacles, offerings, “our Lord sprang out of Juda,” covenants, cherubims – “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered unto the holy place having obtained eternal redemption [for us].

“And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions [that were] under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.”

In the first testament (OT) Moses mixed the blood of calves with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop. Moses sprinkled this concoction over the book and the people.

Paul is repudiating the Old Testament. Animal blood has been replaced with Jesus’ blood.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

“For God [is] a consuming fire.”

Hmm, what’s the difference between God and Hell?
