Hebrews 7:18-8:2 – Jesus, Our Great High Priest – Part 3

Having established his position that Melchizedek the king of Salem and priest of the Most High God who appeared to Abram, received a tithe from him and blessed him is actually Jesus Himself , the Hebrews writer now begins to discuss Jesus’ eternal and perfect priesthood itself, contrasting it with the imperfect priesthood of mortal human priests.

Hebrews 6:19-7:17 – Jesus Our High Priest – Part 2

The writer now returns to his discussion of Jesus’ role as our great High Priest, quoting once more Psalm 110:4 proclaiming that Jesus is a high Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek, and offering a much more detailed explanation of Jesus’ relationship to Melchizedek – the King of Salem and Priest of the Most High God.

Hebrews 4:14-5:11 – Jesus Our High Priest (Part 1)

Now having thoroughly examined the concept of Jesus as the Living Word of God, we take up the idea that is the central tenet of the letter to the Hebrews – Jesus’ role as our great and compassionate High Priest.
