You have come to the mountain of Grace


Contrasts between Mount Sinai and Mount Zion.

Jesus is considered by scholars such as Weber ...

Mount Sinai was marked by fear and terror. Mount Zion is a place of love and forgiveness.

Mount Sinai is in the desert. Mount Zion is the city of the Living God.

Mount Sinai spoke of earthly things. Mount Zion speaks of heavenly things.

At Mount Sinai, only Moses was allowed to draw near to God. At Mount Zion, an innumerable company, a general assembly is invited to draw near.

Mount Sinai was characterized by guilty men in fear. Mount Zion features just men made perfect.

At Mount Sinai, Moses was the mediator. At Mount Zion, Jesus is the mediator.

Mount Sinai brings an Old Covenant, which was ratified by the blood of animals. Mount Zion brings a New Covenant, which is ratified by the blood of God’s precious Son.

Mount Sinai was all about exclusion, keeping people away from the mountain. Mount Zion is all about invitation.

Mount Sinai is all about Law. Mount Zion is all about grace.

But you have come to Mount Zion: The lesson is plain. We shouldn’t come to Mount Zion as if we were coming to Mount Sinai. So put away your hesitation and get bold in coming to God!
