We owe you an explanation why we couldn’t produce a Eucharist this week.
In the Epistle, the writer is trying to make clear the distinction between Old Testament thinking and that of the New Testament. In our terms, the Old Testament was basically just a bunch of rules. And for all the glory some claimed about rules, the fact is that the greatest reward for following rules is the absence of punishment!
How much more does the New Testament and the Holy Spirit offer! All that, and sacraments too!
