Advent 4th Sunday Year C Second Reading


Second reading: Hebrews 10:5-10

This is what Christ said, on coming into the world:

You who wanted no sacrifice or oblation, 
prepared a body for me.
You took no pleasure in holocausts or sacrifices for sin;
then I said, 
just as I was commanded in the scroll of the book,
‘God, here I am! I am coming to obey your will.


Notice that he says first: You did not want what the Law lays down as the things to be offered, that is: the sacrifices, the oblations, the holocausts and the sacrifices for sin, and you took no pleasure in them; and then he says: Here I am! I am coming to obey your will. He is abolishing the first sort to replace it with the second. And this will was for us to be made holy by the offering of his body made once and for all by Jesus Christ.
