2 But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, 23 to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, 24 to Jesus the Mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better Word than the blood of Abel.
[Editor's Comment: It was my privilege to visit with the late Bishop B. E. Underwood in his lovely home in Franklin Springs, GA, just a few days prior to his death. I felt impressed to call his home and talk with Queen Esther, Bernard's wife to get permission to go see him. Bishop B. E. Underwood graciously granted me that permission. However, when I arrived in his bedroom, he wanted to know where Melvine was and why I didn't bring her.
This Scripture verse in the Book of Hebrews was on Bishop Underwood's mind, and in his usual fashion he expounded on it and included questions about it he did not understand. He longed to see Jesus face to face.
We know that Jesus will rule from Mount Zion. It is the highest point in that whole area. Mount Zion and Jerusalem are synonymous.
If you have any insights to this Scripture I would be delighted to hear from you.

I promise to respond to you.
I want to wish you a happy and blessed Holy Week. It is a good time to read the accounts of it in each of the four Gospels. We are grateful to Dr. Frank G. Tunstall for his great insights as he shared with us his message entitled, "Hosanna!"]
