Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 9:24

_ _ Resumption more fully of the thought, “He entered in once into the holy place,” Hebrews 9:12. He has in Hebrews 9:13, Hebrews 9:14, expanded the words “by his own blood,” Hebrews 9:12; and in Hebrews 9:15-23, he has enlarged on “an High Priest of good things to come.”

_ _ not ... into ... holy places made with hands — as was the Holy of Holies in the earthly tabernacle (see on Hebrews 9:11).

_ _ figures — copies “of the true” holiest place, heaven, the original archetype (Hebrews 8:5).

_ _ into heaven itself — the immediate presence of the invisible God beyond all the created heavens, through which latter Jesus passed (see on Hebrews 4:14; see on 1 Timothy 6:16).

_ _ now — ever since His ascension in the present economy (compare Hebrews 9:26).

_ _ to appear — To PRESENT HIMSELF; Greek, “to be made to appear.” Mere man may have a vision through a medium, or veil, as Moses had (Exodus 33:18, Exodus 33:20-23). Christ alone beholds the Father without a veil, and is His perfect image. Through seeing HIM only can we see the Father.

_ _ in the presence of GodGreek,to the face of God.” The saints shall hereafter see God’s face in Christ (Revelation 22:4): the earnest of which is now given (2 Corinthians 3:18). Aaron, the Levitical high priest for the people, stood before the ark and only saw the cloud, the symbol of God’s glory (Exodus 28:30).

_ _ for us — in our behalf as our Advocate and Intercessor (Hebrews 7:25; Romans 8:34; 1 John 2:1). “It is enough that Jesus should show Himself for us to the Father: the sight of Jesus satisfied God in our behalf. He brings before the face of God no offering which has exhausted itself, and, as only sufficing for a time, needs renewal; but He himself is in person, by virtue of the eternal Spirit, that is, the imperishable life of His person, now and for ever freed from death, our eternally present offering before God” [Delitzsch in Alford].

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 9:24

For Christ did not enter into the holy place made with hands — He never went into the holy of holies at Jerusalem, the figure of the true tabernacle in heaven, Hebrews 8:2. But into heaven itself, to appear in the presence of God for us — As our glorious high priest and powerful intercessor.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 9:24

(13) For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, [which are] the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

(13) Another twofold comparison: the Levitical high priest entered into the sanctuary, which was made indeed by the commandment of God, but yet with men's hands, that it might be a pattern of another more excellent, that is, of the heavenly place, but Christ entered into heaven itself. Again he appeared before the ark, but Christ before God the Father himself.
