Monday in Holy Week

One quick thought from the Apology, but a helpful reminder.

Hebrews 9:11-15

Chapter 9 is included in an editorial insert in Apology of the Augsburg Confession, Article 13: The Number and Use of the Sacraments (AP 13.10) as a citation for the argument that Christians do not have a priesthood because we do not offer sacrifice. Rather, those who are ordained are called "to preach the gospel and to administer the sacraments" (AP 13.9).


We who have been set aside for preaching and administering do not have another sacrifice to give for the forgiveness of sins--that was Jesus.
