“We have an altar
Those who officiate
In the tent
Have no right
Ἔχομεν θυσιαστήριον ἐξ οὗ φαγεῖν οὐκ ἔχουσιν ἐξουσίαν οἱ τῇ σκηνῇ λατρεύοντες.
This author said, “We have (Ἔχομεν) an altar (θυσιαστήριον) from which (ἐξ οὗ) those who officiate in the tent (οἱ τῇ σκηνῇ λατρεύοντες) have no right (οὐκ ἔχουσιν ἐξουσίαν) to eat (φαγεῖν).” This author indicated that the Jewish Christians now had a heavenly altar that was the one-time sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. However, those who had officiated at the sacrifices in the Mosaic tents or the Temple sacrifices have no right to partake or eat at this heavenly altar. Without the acceptance of Jesus Christ, they were excluded from the heavenly altar. Should you exclude anyone from the heavenly altar?
