Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 13:10

_ _ Christianity and Judaism are so totally distinct, that “they who serve the (Jewish) tabernacle,” have no right to eat our spiritual Gospel meat, namely, the Jewish priests, and those who follow their guidance in serving the ceremonial ordinance. He says, “serve the tabernacle,” not “serve IN the tabernacle.” Contrast with this servile worship ours.

_ _ an altar — the cross of Christ, whereon His body was offered. The Lord’s table represents this altar, the cross; as the bread and wine represent the sacrifice offered on it. Our meat, which we by faith spiritually eat, is the flesh of Christ, in contrast to the typical ceremonial meats. The two cannot be combined (Galatians 5:2). That not a literal eating of the sacrifice of Christ is meant in the Lord’s Supper, but a spiritual is meant, appears from comparing Hebrews 13:9 with Hebrews 13:10, “with GRACE, NOT with MEATS.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 13:1-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 13:10

On the former part of this verse, Hebrews 13:15-16 depend; on the latter, Hebrews 13:11-14. We have an altar — The cross of Christ. Whereof they have no right to eat — To partake of the benefits which we receive therefrom. Who serve the tabernacle — Who adhere to the Mosaic law.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 13:10

(7) We have an (f) altar, whereof they have no right to eat which (g) serve the tabernacle.

(7) He refutes their error by an apt and fit comparison. They who in times past served the Tabernacle, did not eat of the sacrifices whose blood was brought for sin into the holy place by the high priest. Moreover these sacrifices represented Christ our offering. Therefore they cannot be partakers of him if they serve the tabernacle, that is, stand in the service of the law: but let us not be ashamed to follow him out of Jerusalem, from which he was cast out and suffered for in this also Christ, who is the truth, answers that type in that he suffered outside the gate.

(f) By the altar, he means the offerings.

(g) Of which they cannot be partakers, who stubbornly retain the rites of the law.
