VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. We have full freedom and confidence to enter the Holy of Holies
"Therefore, brethren, since we have full freedom and confidence to enter into the [Holy of] Holies"
We have full freedom and confidence, or combined as "boldness" or "parrhesia" in the Greek meaning:
1. freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech
2. free and fearless confidence, cheerful courage, boldness, assurance
3. the deportment by which one becomes conspicuous or secures publicity
I wonder if this is the same word where "Pharisees" have been derived from since they are so "bold" to speak nonsense in the front of JESUS? It might relate, but we see the "boldness" of the Pharisees in front of JESUS are based on their limited knowledge of the Law, often times bent to suit their hypocritical needs. The Greek shows no relationship with it, but just a thought to remember the boldness Greek.
Hebrews 3:6 (Amplified Bible)
3:6 But Christ (the Messiah) was faithful over His [own Fatherâ€™s] house as a Son [and Master of it]. And it is we who are [now members] of this house, if we hold fast and firm to the end our joyful and exultant confidence and sense of triumph in our hope [in Christ].
Hebrews 4:16 (Amplified Bible)
4:16 Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to the throne of grace (the throne of Godâ€™s unmerited favor to us sinners), that we may receive mercy [for our failures] and find grace to help in good time for every need [appropriate help and well-timed help, coming just when we need it].
Hebrews 10:35 (Amplified Bible)
10:35 Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward.
1 John 4:17 (Amplified Bible)
4:17 In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgement [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.
