    Heb 7:26-28

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:1

    ¶ Así que, la suma acerca de lo dicho es : Que tenemos tal Sumo Sacerdote que se sent a la diestra del trono de la Majestad en los cielos;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Hebrew 8:1

    Verse 1. Of the things which we have spoken this is the sum] The word kefalaion, which we translate sum, signifies the
    chief, the principal, or head; or, as St. Chrysostom explains it, kefalaion aei to megiston legetai, "that which is greatest is always called kephalaion," i.e. the head, or chief.

    Who is set on the right hand of the throne] This is what the apostle states to be the chief or most important point of all that he had yet discussed.

    His sitting down at the right hand of the throne of God, proves, 1. That he is higher than all the high priests that ever existed. 2. That the sacrifice which he offered for the sins of the world was sufficient and effectual, and as such accepted by God. 3. That he has all power in the heavens and in the earth, and is able to save and defend to the uttermost all that come to God through him. 4. That he did not, like the Jewish high priest, depart out of the holy of holies, after having offered the atonement; but abides there at the throne of God, as a continual priest, in the permanent act of offering his crucified body unto God, in behalf of all the succeeding generations of mankind. It is no wonder the apostle should call this sitting down at the right hand of the throne of the Divine Majesty, the chief or head of all that he had before spoken.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1. Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum , etc..] The scope and drift, the compendium and substance; or the principal of what has been said in or from ( <19B004> Psalm 110:4) and has been discoursed of in the three preceding chapters, is the priesthood of Christ: we have such an high priest ; as is described in the foregoing discourse, and in the following words: Christ is a priest, an high priest, and the saints' high priest; they are not without one under the Gospel dispensation; and Christ is he, and always continues, in whose sacrifice and intercession they have a share: who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens ; he is set, whereas the Levitical priests stood; which shows that he has done his work, and that with acceptance; and is in a state of ease and rest; and is possessed of honour, glory, majesty, and authority, and which continue: the place where he is set is, on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty; the same with the right hand of God; for by the throne of the Majesty is meant God the Father, in his royal glory and dignity; so Tiphereth, one of the ten numbers in the Jews' Cabalistic tree, whose name is Jehovah, is called dwbkh ask , the throne of glory f125 ; so angels are called thrones, ( Colossians 1:16) but God is a throne of majesty superior to them; and at his right hand sits Christ the great high priest; which is expressive of his high honour, glory, and power, and even of his equality with God: the phrase, in the heavens, may refer both to God the throne of majesty, who is there, and to Christ the high priest, who is passed into them, and received by them, and sits there.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - The substance, or summary, of what had been declared was, tha
    Christians had such a High Priest as they needed. He took upon himsel human nature, appeared on earth, and there gave himself as a sacrific to God for the sins of his people. We must not dare to approach God, or to present any thing to him, but in and through Christ, depending upo his merits and mediation; for we are accepted only in the Beloved. I all obedience and worship, we should keep close to God's word, which is the only and perfect standard. Christ is the substance and end of the law of righteousness. But the covenant here referred to, was that mad with Israel as a nation, securing temporal benefits to them. The promises of all spiritual blessings, and of eternal life, revealed in the gospel, and made sure through Christ, are of infinitely greate value. Let us bless God that we have a High Priest that suits ou helpless condition.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    1. Of the things which we have spoken (epi toiv legomenoiv). The A.V. is wrong. jEpi is in the
    case of, or in the consideration of: not of, nor in addition to. Toiv legomenoiv "the things which are being spoken": the matters now under discussion.

    The sum (kefalaion). Rend. the chief point. It is not the sum of what precedes, but the main point of the present discussion. This point is that Christ is the minister of a better sanctuary, connected with a better covenant.

    Such an high priest (toiouton). Taken up from ch. vii. 26.

    Is set (ekaqisen). Repeating ch. i. 3. Rend. sat down.

    The throne of the majesty (tou qronou thv megalwsunhv). See on ch. i. 3. The phrase N.T.o .

    In the heavens (en toiv ouranoiv). Const. with sat down, not with majesty, which is complete in itself and needs no qualifying epithet.
