Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 8:3

_ _ For — assigning his reason for calling him “minister of the sanctuary” (Hebrews 8:2).

_ _ somewhat — He does not offer again His once for all completed sacrifice. But as the high priest did not enter the Holy Place without blood, so Christ has entered the heavenly Holy Place with His own blood. That “blood of sprinkling” is in heaven. And is thence made effectual to sprinkle believers as the end of their election (1 Peter 1:2). The term “consecrate” as a priest, is literally, to fill the hand, implying that an offering is given into the hands of the priest, which it is his duty to present to God. If a man be a priest, he must have some gift in his hands to offer. Therefore, Christ, as a priest, has His blood as His oblation to offer before God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 8:3

(4) For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore [it is] of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

(4) He brings a reason why it must be that Christ should have a body (which he calls a tabernacle which the Lord built, and not man) that is, that he might have that to offer: for otherwise he could not be an High Priest. The body is both the tabernacle and the sacrifice.
