Sanctified by a Single Sacrifice

Hebrews 10:11-14 gives us 4 features of Christ's death that prove its absolute sufficiency.

1. Jesus' Sacrifice was a single sacrifice.
-In contrast to the multiplicity of sacrifices under the Old Covenant.

2. Jesus' Sacrifice culminated with Jesus being seated at the Father's right hand.
-In contrast to the priests who stand daily, never finished.

3. Jesus' Sacrifice was comprehensive ("for all time")
-In contrast to the limited effectiveness of the Old Covenant sacrifices.

4. Jesus' Sacrifice accomplished perfection for sinners.
-In contrast to the sacrifices that cannot make perfect (Heb. 10:1).
