In our contemporary culture, the Bible’s description of Jesus as a “high priest” does not resonate as it would have with a first-century reader. Nevertheless, Alistair Begg teaches us that understanding Jesus’ priestly role is fundamental to our Christian faith. As the writer of Hebrews makes clear, every requirement for an Old Testament high priest was met in Jesus Christ, whose priesthood will last forever.
14Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
