Hebrews 7:11-20

In Old Testament days, the key role of the high priest was to step in for the people and confess their sins before God. In this way, they would all be absolved of guilt. Now Christ has become our High Priest, and entered the eternal Holy of Holies in heaven, offering His own blood once for the sins of all. By my right standing with Christ, I now have access to the throne of grace. This access to the Father is so precious, so unique, and so intimate that it far outweighs the benefits that any human priest could offer. The old system only foreshadowed the ultimate fulfillment in Jesus Christ. Human priests were prey to the same sins as those they represented. Now, we have a sinless High Priest who can understand us and defend us. He sits at the right hand of the Father; our High Priest fulfills the role of Lord, Savior, and friend. He justifies and comforts. He understands and transforms. How insufficient all others are in comparison to our Christ!
