New Defender's Study Bible Notes

10:12 sat down. The high priests in Israel could never be seated while ministering (Hebrews 10:11), for their work was never finished. They could only enter the most holy place once each year, but Christ sat down at God’s right hand, after offering one sacrifice for sins forever.
