For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

7:19 a better hope. There are four adjectives used in the New Testament to describe our hope in Christ. It is a “better hope” than anything the world can offer, for it is our “hope of salvation” and “hope of glory” (I Thessalonians 5:8; Colossians 1:27). It is a “good hope” (II Thessalonians 2:16), a “blessed hope” (Titus 2:13), and a “lively hope” (I Peter 1:3). Furthermore, the word “hope” itself does not mean a “wish” but rather a divine “promise.”
