Jesus had one more work to do.

KJV


Heb 9:11-12

11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Review Abraham's Covenant: What makes Abraham so important to me?

14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

#. Abraham guarded the sacrifice. Explain.

11 And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away.
