Hebrews 7, part 1

This week we are covering the topic of Jesus as our High Priest. Since it is such a vast subject, however, we will be taking more than one week to work through the passage.

Certainly the covenant of God between Himself and His people Israel was centred around the priesthood and the offering of sacrifices at the temple. Further, most world religions have a priesthood of some kind; some person or persons who are the mediators and deliverers of their teaching and the pardon of their deity.

But what does this mean for us? Do we need priests today? The seventh chapter of Hebrews provides a thorough examination of this question.
