Lord Jesus is our merciful and faithful high priest. This
elegant and rich picture of Jesus is one that Christians
rarely hear about. It is wonderful to know that Jesus is
our God, Savior, Lord, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace, the Anointed One, Son
of Man, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, and the great I Am.
But would you like to understand Jesus better and know
what it means that Jesus is our high priest? If you would,
come and study the book of Hebrews with us. This is the
only one of its kind in the New Testament, and it gave
us new, rich insights into Jesus.
book is written to Jews who were thinking about leaving their new faith. So the
Holy Spirit encourages them to "hold on" to their faith in Jesus. He
tells them that Jesus is better than anything and anyone including the angels,
Moses, Aaron, and any high priest. There is no other book like Hebrews. It will
open your eyes to Jesus as our Great High Priest.
book is also very practical and helps us to know how well we are "running
the Christian race." Here are just a few questions to be answered: "Am
I a mature Christian?" "Can I lose my salvation?" "Does the
Law still apply today?" "How do I live by faith?" What are the
dark, warning sections in Hebrews about? What are the keys to becoming a mature,
spirit-filled saint in the Lord?
