In the midst of persecution and rejection, the Jewish believers, who had come from a background of legalism and works, were tempted to hold onto symbols, rituals, and traditions that were grounded in the requirements of the Old Covenant. Then God came to earth in human flesh as the New Covenant, and these believers discovered the freedom they could have in Jesus and the relationship they could have with their Savior.
The book of Hebrews, by an unknown writer, contrasts the Old and New Covenant and brilliantly shows that Christ is higher than any Old Testament character, priest, ritual, or sacrifice. Because of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection, He is the perfect sacrifice and our own High Priest. He has given all believers unfettered access to God.
