Christ’s sacrifice fully dealt with sin and fully satisfied God; this is the “finished work” Hebrews 10 proclaims. As Alistair Begg teaches, this work eliminated the need for the insufficient sacrificial system of the Old Testament, or any other human effort at right standing with God. Nothing can be added to what Christ has accomplished: sin has been forgotten, Satan’s power has been broken, and God’s justice has been satisfied.
1For since the law has but a shadow of the good things to come instead of the true form of these realities, it can never, by the same sacrifices that are continually offered every year, make perfect those who draw near.
