comment Comma? “Verily I say unto thee today, …” or “Verily I say unto thee, today…”
@rhetorician: Hi friend, when you ask why could He NOT have entered heaven and then returned? Because Jesus Himself said so in John 20:17 "Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’"

@rhetorician: unfortunately your statement "Moreover, Jesus committed His spirit to the Father (after saying "It is finished"), and then He went straight to the Father in heaven" completely contradicts Jesus statement in John 20 I quoted and all the verses you quote don't say anything about Jesus going to heaven immediately when He died.

comment Hebrews 9:12 - Did Jesus Christ offer his blood in heaven?
"For on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before the LORD." (Leviticus 16:30) Notice here that if the daily sacrifice were sufficient, then the day of atonement to "cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before the LORD" would be unnecessary. I will update my answer to connect Hebrews to Daniel properly, thanks again!

comment Hebrews 9:12 - Did Jesus Christ offer his blood in heaven?
When Jesus said it is finished, Satan knew His kingdom would come to an end, Christ had completed the work of the sacrifice and reclaimed dominion of the earth which had been forfeited by Adam's transgression but the work of His intercession and ministry to complete the process of the atonement would still continue based on Romans 8:34, Hebrews 8 etc. This also is in harmony with the Old Testament process of the atonement. We know that a lamb was slain daily in the OT, yet the process of atonement was not completed till the day of atonement for it says ...

comment Hebrews 9:12 - Did Jesus Christ offer his blood in heaven?
@rhetorician: Hi rhetorician, good questions yeah after posting the Hebrews to Daniel I remembered I needed to post another verse first to connect but let me explain the atonement first. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 15:16-17 "For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen. And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!" Here Paul says that if Christ did not rise, we would not be saved from sin. Thus to say that the death of Christ without His high priestly ministry is sufficient for salvation is not in harmony with the Bible.
