    MLD,
    What translation did you use? I don’t think it did justice to these verses:

    “Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant, 21 equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.” (Heb 13:20-21 ESV)

    The critical issue is the placement of “by the blood of the eternal covenant.” The ESV captures the sacramental essence that Christ’s blood (the life is in the blood) equips his followers….

    Otherwise, an excellent teaching, once again.

    Jean, since it was perhaps 4 yrs ago it was probably NIV. That was, well still is our pew & classroom Bible. But the studies I did later are ESV as several people have bought The Lutheran Study Bible which is ESV.

    Then I absolve you. 🙂
