Priesthood of Christ Part 2

Labels: , .

Read Part 1

"For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens" Hebrews 7:26

holy - contrast Aaron
harmless - contrast Nadab and Abihu
undefiled - contrast Joshua (Zech 3:1)
separate from sinners - contrast Caiaphas
made higher than the heavens - contrast Melchisedec

By the above contrasts, how superior the priesthood of Christ is!

It is also possible to see these descriptions as referring to His first advent
- holy in His birth
- harmless in His life
- undefiled in His death
- separate from sinners in His burial
- made higher than the heavens in His resurrection and ascension
