Hebrews 8:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

A minister (λειτουργὸς)

Sat down as a minister. From an old adjective λεῖτος or λέΐτος (found only in this compound), belonging to the people, and ἔργον work. Hence, originally, the service of the state in a public office. In lxx and N.T. λειτουργὸς minister, λειτουργεῖν to minister, and λειτουργία ministry are used both of priestly service to God and of service to men. Λειτουργία in lxx rarely of the service of the priests, often of the Levites. See 1 Kings 1:4; 1 Kings 19:21; 2 Kings 4:43; 2 Kings 6:15. Λειτουργοὺς Hebrews 1:7, in the general sense of servants of God.

Of the sanctuary (τῶν ἁγίων)

The heavenly sanctuary. Τὰ ἅγια the most holy place, Hebrews 9:8, Hebrews 9:12, Hebrews 9:25; Hebrews 10:19; Hebrews 13:11. Comp. ἅγια ἀγίων holy of holies, Hebrews 9:3. Ἅγια holy places generally, but with special reference to the innermost sanctuary, Hebrews 9:24.

The true tabernacle (τῆς σκηνῆς τῆς ἀλυθινῆς)

Explanatory of τῶν ἁγίων. The form of expression is emphatic: the tabernacle, the genuine one, as compared with the tabernacle in the wilderness. For ἀλιθινός real, genuine, see on John 1:9. Σκηνή a tent. For different shades of meaning, comp. Matthew 17:4; Luke 16:9; Acts 7:43. In this epistle always of the tabernacle in the wilderness.
