Second Reading for the 4th Sunday of Advent Year C

Hebrews 10:5-10

Summary: Christ's arrival meant replacing old sacrifices with his own body, fulfilling God's will. His sacrifice made us holy once and for all.

Christ's Willing Sacrifice

Brothers and sisters:

When Christ came into the world, he said: “Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; in holocausts and sin offerings you took no delight.

Then I said, ‘As is written of me in the scroll, behold, I come to do your will, O God.’”

First he says, “Sacrifices and offerings, holocausts and sin offerings, you neither desired nor delighted in.”

These are offered according to the law. Then he says, :Behold, I come to do your will.”

He takes away the first to establish the second.

By this “will,” we have been consecrated through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
