13 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
14 ¶ Then came to him the disciples of John, saying, Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
15 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them? but the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken from them, and then shall they fast.
4 ¶ O Ephraim, what shall I do unto thee? O Judah, what shall I do unto thee? for your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.
5 Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth.
6 For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.
7 But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.
The Pharisees were in their hearts attached to observe the law externally through the offerings and other regulations, but they didn't understand the goal of the law, which is the mercy (knowing of God) and not sacrificing of the offerings. Therefore, Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah said that the Pharisees should go and learn what the mercy means, because God wants mercy, not the offerings.
God said through the prophet Hosea how He wants more mercy and knowing of God that the offerings. The animal sacrificial system has not never been God's final plan, but temporary solution. Through the blood and the atonement of Jesus the Messiah. God abolished the Old Covenant animal offerings, because through Jesus the Messiah came the truth and the grace. Through Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah came the final solution to the atonement of sins. God abolished the order of the Old Covenant, because through Jesus came in the power better Covenant, which has made for the better promises through the blood and the atonement of Jesus.
37 and Jesus cried with a loud voice, and expired.
38 and the curtain of the door of the temple was rent, from the top to the bottom.
Why did God tear the veil of the temple, did He it as the sign that the order of the Old Covenant was the same and unchanged or was it as the sign that the order of the Old Covenant was abolished and annulled? If we are honest in our hearts before God, so we would believe that the broken veil meant abolishing of the order of the Old Covenant, because the broken veil doesn't give the message that the Old Covenant order would remain in the power, but it gives the message that the Old Covenant order was abolished. God Himself chose that the broken veil was the sign, in which He first announced and published that the Old Covenant order was abolished and the time of the New Covenant has begun (Jer 31:31-34). We should accept His decision and resist and rebel against the work and order of God.
19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
19 ¶ Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
The breaking of the veil through the blood of Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah opened the way to the New Covenant abolished the order of the Old Covenant. The breaking of the veil led to the change of the law, in which the order and the priesthood of the Old Covenant were abolished.
11 ¶ If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Heb 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
The word of God says very clearly that the chancing of Old Covenant priesthood caused also the change of the law. This means that the Old Covenant priesthood and animal offerings was repealed and annulled, because nowadays the law of God works and is in the power, according to the order of the New Covenant and the order of the Old Covenant is not in any way in the power at the time of the New Covenant. The message of the letter to the Hebrews is to Jewish believers of Jesus the Messiah and it says that the order of the Old Covenant has been annulled, because the order of the New Covenant is in the power through the blood and the atonement of Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah.
