Notes: "Was fitted to our condition.
That is, there was that in our character and circumstances which demanded
that a high priest for us should be personally holy.
It was not requisite merely that he should have great power or that he
should be of a rank superior to that of the Jewish priesthood, but there
was a special propriety that he should surpass all others in moral purity.
Other priests were mere mortal men and it was necessary that their office
should pass to other hands. They were sinful men also and it was necessary
that sacrifices should be made for themselves as well as others. We need
however, a different priest. We need not only one who ever lives, but one
who is perfectly holy and who has no need to bring an offering for himself.
And this one with all the merit of whose sacrifice may be ours. Such an
high priest we have in the person of the Lord Emmanuel."

is a tense of
verbs used in describing action that has been completed, also called
second perfect tense, it being identical
in meaning to that of the normal or 'first' perfect tense.(see
just below) and has no additional
effect on English translation. The classification merely represents a spelling
variation in Greek.
Exhaustive Concordance number in Greek for word 'heard' is 5754.
This verb tense expresses action completed at the present time, formed
in English by combining the present tense of 'have'
with a past participle,
as in 'He has spoken'; a verb used in the present perfect tense. Also same
is the scripture in Romans 8:28;
please see there.
is present perfect.
The present tense in Greek represents a simple statement of fact or reality
viewed as occurring in actual time; in most cases this corresponds directly
with the English present tense which is the tense of a verb that expresses
action or state in the present time and is used of what occurs or
is true at the time of speaking and of
what is habitual or characteristic
or is always or necessarily true. Some phrases which might be rendered
as past tense in English will often occur in the present tense in Greek.
These are termed 'historical presents' and such occurrences dramatize the
event described as if the reader were there watching the event.
Exhaustive Concordance number in Greek, 5719 for word 'cleanseth':
Strong's, 2513, denotes
complete, total and absolute, as you will see as you read the tense, voice
and mood below, freedom from defilements of the flesh and the world; Strong's
denotes freedom from falsehoods.
is active. The active voice
represents the subject as the doer or performer of the action. e.g.,
in the sentence 'The boy hit the ball' the boy performs the action, used
of a verb form or voice; expressing action rather than a state of
being. Used of verbs such as run, speak and move,
indicating that the subject of the sentence is performing or causing the
action expressed by the verb. When the verb of a sentence
is in the active voice, the SUBJECT is doing the acting, as in the sentence
"John hit the ball." John (the subject of the sentence) acts in relation
to the ball.
is Aorist. The
Greek aorist tense is characterized by its emphasis on punctiliar.(precise).action;
that is, the concept
of the verb
is considered without regard for past, present or future time, that is,
that which expresses action without indicating its completion or continuation.
There is no direct or clear English equivalent for this tense, though it
is generally rendered as a simple past tense in most translations.
The events described by the
aorist tense are classified into a number of categories by grammarians.
The most common of these include a view of the action as having begun from
a certain point.('inceptive
having ended at a certain point.('cumulative
merely existing at a certain point.'punctiliar
aorist"). The categorization of other
cases can be found in Greek reference grammars.
The English reader need not
concern himself with most of these finer points concerning the aorist tense,
since in most cases they cannot be rendered accurately in English translation,
being fine points of Greek exegesis.(critical
explanation or analysis of a text).only.
The common practice of rendering an aorist by a simple English past tense
should suffice in most cases.
The passive voice has to
do with the subject being the object of the verb, for example.
The indicative mood is a simple statement of fact. If an action really
occurs or has occurred or will occur, it will be rendered in the indicative
mood. 1John 1:9.Strong's

The subjunctive mood is the mood of possibility and potentiality. The action
described may or may not occur, depending upon circumstances.

is Perfect. The
perfect tense in Greek corresponds to the perfect tense in English and
describes an action which is viewed as having been completed in the past,
once and for all, not needing to be repeated.
Emmanuel's last cry from
the cross, TETELESTAI.("It
a good example of the perfect tense used in this sense, namely "It.(the
been accomplished, completely, once and for all time."
Certain antiquated verb forms
in Greek, such as those related to seeing.('eidw').or
use the perfect tense in a manner equivalent to the normal past tense.
These few cases are exception to the normal rule and do not alter the normal
of the perfect tense stated above.
The boy hit the ball," the
boy performs the action.

(He has won a reputation as a pluperfect bureaucrat); the pluperfect tense
is formed in English with the past participle of a verb and the auxiliary
as had learned in the sentence 'He had learned to type by the time
the semester was over'. The English pluperfect is normally formed with
the past tense of the "helping" verbs "to have" or "to be", plus the past
"He had finished." The English perfect is formed by the present tense of
the helping verb plus the past participle, e.g., "He has finished".
perfect tense reflects the final completion of an action at the present
Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
number in Greek, 5779: The pluperfect tense in Greek occurs rarely. It
corresponds in a single Greek word to the sense of the English pluperfect.
In translation the Greek pluperfect may not always follow the rendering
of the English pluperfect, due to excessive wordiness.

More Greek Moods:
The Greek participle corresponds for the most part to the
English participle, reflecting "- ing" or "- ed" being suffixed to
the basic verb form. The participle can be used either like a verb or a
noun, as in English and thus is often termed a "verbal noun".

of the Old
Testament were only temporary in their nature and were designed to

When this 16th century reformation
began, it was referred to as the 'fulness of times':.Ephesians
