Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 8:2

_ _ minister — The Greek term implies priestly ministry in the temple.

_ _ the sanctuaryGreek, “the holy places”; the Holy of Holies. Here the heavenly sanctuary is meant.

_ _ the true — the archetypal and antitypical, as contrasted with the typical and symbolical (Hebrews 9:24). Greekalethinos” (used here) is opposed to that which does not fulfil its idea, as for instance, a type;alethes,” to that which is untrue and unreal, as a lie. The measure of alethes is reality; that of alethinos, ideality. In alethes the idea corresponds to the thing; in alethinos, the thing to the idea [Kalmis in Alford].

_ _ tabernacle — (Hebrews 9:11). His body. Through His glorified body as the tabernacle, Christ passes into the heavenly “Holy of Holies,” the immediate immaterial presence of God, where He intercedes for us. This tabernacle in which God dwells, is where God in Christ meets us who are “members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.” This tabernacle answers to the heavenly Jerusalem, where God’s visible presence is to be manifested to His perfected saints and angels, who are united in Christ the Head; in contradistinction to His personal invisible presence in the Holy of Holies unapproachable save to Christ. John 1:14, “Word ... dwelt among us,” Greek, “tabernacled.”

_ _ pitchedGreek, “fixed” firmly.

_ _ not man — as Moses (Hebrews 8:5).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 8:1-5.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 8:2

A minister — Who represents his own sacrifice, as the high priest did the blood of those sacrifices once a year. Of the sanctuary — Heaven, typified by the holy of holies. And of the true tabernacle — Perhaps his human nature, of which the old tabernacle was a type. Which the Lord hath fixed — Forever. Not man — As Moses fixed the tabernacle.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 8:2

(2) A minister of the (a) sanctuary, (3) and of the (b) true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

(2) They of Levi were high priests in an earthly sanctuary, but Christ is in the heavenly.

(a) Of heaven. (3) They of Levi exercised their priesthood in a frail tabernacle, but Christ bears about with him another tabernacle, that is, his body, which God himself made everlasting, as shall later be declared in (Hebrews 9:11).

(b) Of his body.
