Our High Priest

Re: Verse reading–Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:1-10 (day one)
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.”  (v 4:14)   It would be hard to find a more universally respected figure in the ancient world than the Jewish High Priest.  White robes flowing.  Having gone through a process of purification.  He appeared in public every Passover to enter into the “Holy of Holies” and present the offering before God, symbolizing the promise of atonement.  There is One who deserves more respect.  Much more. When Jesus “disappeared” into heaven, as the High Priest disappeared by passing through the Temple veil, He did a similar and superior work.  He successfully represented the needs of sinful people before a Holy God.  Our study this week will make use of this powerful image.  Can you see (eyes of faith) the Lord still there before the throne of God  faithfully interceding for you?
