Hebrews 08 General Notes

Structure and formatting

The author is still speaking about Jesus’ role as the ultimate high priest. The author also begins to speak about how the new covenant is superior to the covenant God made with Moses. (See: rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/newcovenant and rc://en/tw/dict/bible/kt/covenant)

Some translations indent each line of poetry to make it easier to read. The ULB does this with the poetry in 8:8-12, which is quoted from the OT.

Special concepts in this chapter

Other possible translation difficulties in this chapter


The author begins to speak using the pronoun “we.” It is uncertain who else this includes.
