Moshiach supercedes the Levitical system
8:1 Now of the things which we have spoken [this is] the sum: We have such an Kohen HaGadol, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;
8:2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Master pitched, and not man.
8:3 For every Kohen HaGadol is ordained to offer gifts and these zevakhim (sacrifices): wherefore [it is] of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.
8:4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a kohen, seeing that there are Kohanim that offer gifts according to the Torah:
8:5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Mosheh was admonished of Elohim when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith He, [that] thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
8:6 But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better Brit, which was established upon better promises.
8:7 For if that first [Covenant] had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.
8:8 For finding fault with them, He saith:
Behold, the days come, saith the Master, when I will make a renewed Brit with the beit Yisrael and with the beit Yehudah:
Not according to the Brit that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Mitzrayim; because they continued not in My Brit, and I regarded them not, saith the Master.
For this [is] the Brit that I will make with the beit Yisrael after those days, saith the Master; I will put My Torah into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a Elohim, and they shall be to Me a people:
And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Master: for all shall know Me, from the least to the greatest.
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
8:13 In that He saith:
A Brit Hadashah, He hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old [is] ready to vanish away.
