Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus,
Therefore, let us no longer criticize one another, but instead decide not to put a stumbling block or pitfall in your brother's way.
But when God is silent, who can declare [Him] guilty? When He hides [His] face, who can see Him? Yet He [watches] over both individuals and nations,
the LORD will not leave him in his hand or allow him to be condemned when he is judged.
For He stands at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who would condemn him.
In those days and at that time-- [this is] the LORD's declaration-- one will search for Israel's guilt, but there will be none, and for Judah's sins, but they will not be found, for I will forgive those I leave as a remnant.
It is Christ
He was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.
For while we were still helpless, at the appointed moment, Christ died for the ungodly.
For rarely will someone die for a just person-- though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die.
But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us!
Much more then, since we have now been declared righteous by His blood, we will be saved through Him from wrath.
For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, [then how] much more, having been reconciled, will we be saved by His life!
Christ died and came to life for this: that He might rule over both the dead and the living.
and to be gracious to him and say, "Spare him from going down to the Pit; I have found a ransom,"
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life-- a ransom for many."
"In a little while the world will see Me no longer, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live too.
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, because it is written: Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.
The purpose was that the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, so that we could receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
He is the radiance of His glory, the exact expression of His nature, and He sustains all things by His powerful word. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
They are physical regulations and only deal with food, drink, and various washings imposed until the time of restoration.
Now the Messiah has appeared, high priest of the good things that have come. In the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands (that is, not of this creation),
He entered the holy of holies once for all, not by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.
For if the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who are defiled, sanctify for the purification of the flesh,
how much more will the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works to serve the living God?
By this will, we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all.
Now every priest stands day after day ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
But this man, after offering one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.
He is now waiting until His enemies are made His footstool.
For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are sanctified.
Therefore, brothers, since we have boldness to enter the sanctuary through the blood of Jesus,
by the new and living way that He has inaugurated for us, through the curtain (that is, His flesh);
and since we have a great high priest over the house of God,
let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, our hearts sprinkled [clean] from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water.
keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of God's throne.
For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring you to God, after being put to death in the fleshly realm but made alive in the spiritual realm.
and the Living One. I was dead, but look-- I am alive forever and ever, and I hold the keys of death and Hades.
who is even
Then after speaking to them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.
"Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!"
Then they screamed at the top of their voices, stopped their ears, and rushed together against him.
They threw him out of the city and began to stone him. And the witnesses laid their robes at the feet of a young man named Saul.
They were stoning Stephen as he called out: "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!"
Then he knelt down and cried out with a loud voice, "Lord, do not charge them with this sin!" And saying this, he fell asleep.
So if you have been raised with the Messiah, seek what is above, where the Messiah is, seated at the right hand of God.
Now the main point of what is being said is this: we have this kind of high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,
a minister of the sanctuary and the true tabernacle, which the Lord set up, and not man.
Therefore since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that lies before us,
Now that He has gone into heaven, He is at God's right hand, with angels, authorities, and powers subjected to Him.
And He who searches the hearts knows the Spirit's mind-set, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Therefore I will give Him the many as a portion, and He will receive the mighty as spoil, because He submitted Himself to death, and was counted among the rebels; yet He bore the sin of many and interceded for the rebels.
In that day you will not ask Me anything. "I assure you: Anything you ask the Father in My name, He will give you.
In that day you will ask in My name. I am not telling you that I will make requests to the Father on your behalf.
For the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came from God.
I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in Me through their message.
May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You. May they also be one in Us, so the world may believe You sent Me.
I have given them the glory You have given Me. May they be one as We are one.
I am in them and You are in Me. May they be made completely one, so the world may know You have sent Me and have loved them as You have loved Me.
Father, I desire those You have given Me to be with Me where I am. Then they will see My glory, which You have given Me because You loved Me before the world's foundation.
Therefore since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens-- Jesus the Son of God-- let us hold fast to the confession.
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tested in every way as we are, yet without sin.
Therefore He is always able to save those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to intercede for them.
For the Messiah did not enter a sanctuary made with hands (only a model of the true one) but into heaven itself, that He might now appear in the presence of God for us.
My little children, I am writing you these things so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father-- Jesus Christ the righteous One.
He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not only for ours, but also for those of the whole world.
