The Priesthood of Christ

Hebrews 9:26  (ID: 2484)

In the Old Testament era, the principal duty of an Israelite priest was to gain access to God through sacrificial offerings. As the New Testament explains, though, when Jesus Christ died on the cross, He satisfied the punishment of sin once and for all. In this sermon from Hebrews, Alistair Begg examines Jesus’ role as our High Priest who works as our advocate and remedies our alienation from God.


26for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
