Week 3: Jesus: Our Perfect Priest, Forever
In order for us to experience what happens next, we need to be confident in the above teachings in order to embrace with confidence our purpose in this epic story within which we have been privileged to participate. To the writer these teachings have already been embraced and experienced. No need to struggle or debate them anymore.
Why is Jesus a perfect priest?
1. He was appointed by the Father – Ps. 110
2. Abraham affirmed his position as Priest of God - Melchizedek vs. Aaron -A priest forever like Melchizedek - Melchizedek means “King of Righteousness and King of Peace, Priest of the God Most High. 7:3. – No history recorded.
Not like Aaron, but like Melchizedek because he is a perfect priest, not limited by human restrictions.
Like Melchiz, not him. This is for comparison’s purpose. Type of Christ, probably not Christ himself.
What does that mean for us?
1. He is able to completely save those who trust in Him.
2. He forever serves as a priest to intercede on our behalf.
- He is not necessarily praying for us, he is standing for us. He is seated! Therefore his intercession is a constant reminder to the Father and to Angels, demons, and Satan himself that Jesus is our protector and rear-guard.
- Very much like a momma who always keeps her eyes on her children.

3. This produces confidence because this assures us that our sins are forgiven.
4. This translates into daily confidence in God who can empathize with all our needs.
- This is why death doesn’t matter.
- Paul puts it best – Rom. 8 nothing can separate us from the love of God. No fear of man or spirit.
