Calaway finds that the Hebrews to the discussion joined by the priestly decidedly religious reference system that hosted the Sabbath of the sanctuary, in claim took. From the Hebrew Bible to the Judaism of the Second Temple, the holiness of the sanctuary was experienced by the Sabbath holy places by holy times. In a way that resembled the post-war layers of the emerging Christian traditions, you could experience the heavenly reality of the Sabbath and the sanctuary through devotion and obedience to Jesus, the humble and obedient heavenly High Priest who purifies, consecrates and completed, rather than God's holy and heavenly To find the presence in the weekly Sabbath.
