3 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ’s Eternal Priesthood- “The High Priest’s Ministry” Exodus 28:1 28 And take thou unto thee Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him, from among the children of Israel, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar, Aaron's sons.

4 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ’s Eternal Priesthood- “The High Priest’s Ministry” As the three sections of the Tabernacle were separated with extreme severity, so the three orders of ministers. LEVITES were the appointed servants of the court, but they were excluded from the holy Place on pain of death. PRIESTS executed the ministry of the Holy Place but were as solemnly prohibited from entering beyond the veil into the Holy of Holies. HIGH PRIEST as mediator between God and the people. He was set apart to represent the nation in order to "bear the iniquity of the holy things, which the children of Israel shall hallow in all their holy gifts" (Exodus 28:38). Hence the offerings are sanctified by the appearance of the high priest as an atoning mediator before God. Until Christ, this had to be constantly repeated because the blood of bulls and goats cannot remit sin, but were only a temporary covering for the past year (Hebrews 7:17-28; 10:1-14).

9 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ’s Eternal Priesthood- “The High Priest’s Ministry” Hebrews 5:1-3 3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins. 3 Because of this (his weakness or infirmity) he is required as for the people, so also for himself, to offer sacrifices for sins.

10 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ’s Eternal Priesthood- “Made High Priest by God” Hebrews 5:4-6 4 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.

And he gave him tithes of all.

17 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ’s Eternal Priesthood- “Suffering High Priest” Hebrews 5: Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; No one before Him ever established his priesthood through such intense personal agony and through such overriding trial of faith.

20 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Melchesedec, A Type of Christ- “A Priest Continually” Hebrews 7: For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; 2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; 3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

21 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Melchesedec, A Type of Christ- “A Priest Continually” Hebrews 7: Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. 5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham: 6 But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises..

22 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Melchesedec, A Type of Christ- “A Priest Continually” Hebrews 7: And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better. 8 And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth. 9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. 10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.

24 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Melchesedec, A Type of Christ- “The Levitical Priesthood” Hebrews 7: If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? (Writer of Hebrews is referring to Psalms 110:4) 12 For the 1) priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a 2) change also of the law. 13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to 3) another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.

25 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Melchesedec, A Type of Christ- “The Priesthood of Christ” Hebrews 7: For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. Micah 5:2 2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

30 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ Priestly Ministry- “Our Great High Priest” Hebrews 4: Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

31 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ Priestly Ministry- “Christ’s Unchangeable Priesthood” Hebrews 7: And inasmuch as not without an oath he was made priest: 21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) 22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.

32 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ Priestly Ministry- “Christ’s Unchangeable Priesthood” Hebrews 7: And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. (His complete focus is us!!!)

33 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ Priestly Ministry- “Christ’s Unchangeable Priesthood” Hebrews 7: For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; 27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once, when he offered up himself. 28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

34 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ Priestly Ministry- “Christ’s Superior Priesthood” Hebrews 8:1-6 1 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; 2 A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man. 3 For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.

35 Christ’s All-Sufficient Priesthood Christ Priestly Ministry- “Christ’s Superior Priesthood” Hebrews 8:1-6 4 For if he were on earth, he should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law: 5 Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.
