Teaching Outline Week 21

The Joy in Responsibility

(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)


Lifelong Clean Conscience

Hebrews 9:1-14 


Why the detailed history lesson? (verses 1-7)

What our author wants us to see about the Old period…

Verse 1: earthly sanctuary

Verse 2: outer place (Holy Place)

Verse 3-5:  inner place (Most Holy Place)

Verse 6: Priests daily work (outer place)

Verse 7: High Priest Atoning Work Once a Year (inner place)

How our author interprets utilizing time references:

Verse 8-9: this present time

Verses 10-14 : the time of reformation

This Present Time:

Limited Access to God

Clean on the outside (external worship)

Not clean on the inside (No perfect conscience)

“Dead Works” service toward God

Time of Reformation:

Redeemed Access to God

Clean on the inside (internal worship)

Outside reflecting the inside

Serving the Living God



Cleaning up your act so you can sleep at night does nothing.

A perfect conscience generates real and righteous service toward God.
