It would be helpful from a summarising point of view if the last part of this chapter - about boldly approaching the throne of grace because of Jesus our great high priest - was part of chapter 5.

Chapter 5 is very short and all about Jesus' high priesthood so it would seem to make thematic and textual sense. And then I wouldn't have had to abridge so drastically!


V 12 For the word of God is alive and active.
This chapter provides immense food for thought.
