                      "THE EPISTLE TO THE HEBREWS"

                             Chapter Eight

Having demonstrated Jesusí superiority to prophets, angels, Moses, and
Levi, the author summarizes: we have a High Priest at Godís right hand
who is Minister and Mediator of a better covenant established on better
promises (1-6).   Our attention is then directed toward that New
Covenant which has replaced the Old Covenant (7-13).

POINTS TO PONDER

   *  The main point of all that has been said:  "We have such a High
      Priest..."

   *  The two covenants (the first and old, replaced by the second and
      new)
