Hebrews 7. Forum Discussion

A better covenant

Chapter 7 can be summed up in one word, “Better.” It is a complex chapter that compares Jesus to the high priests under the Old Law. It also compares the New Testament and the Old Testament.

For the purposes of today’s forum, we will compare Jesus and the New Testament to the high priests and the Old Testament:

Jesus and the New Testament are better because:

  • High priests needed to be replaced when they died. Jesus is our High Priest forever. He conquered death and holds His priesthood permanently. – Hebrews 7:24
  • Jesus saves forever. The high priests needed to make sacrifices repeatedly every day. – Hebrews 7:25
  • Jesus is holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. – Hebrews 7:26. He offered Himself as the ultimate sacrifice once and forever. – Hebrews 7:27. The high priests had to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people.

We are blessed to have Jesus as our perfect Savior and High Priest. He is flawless and loves us despite all our failures and shortcomings. All authority on heaven and earth has been given to Jesus. – Mathew 28:18. All that He asks from us is to trust Him, believe in Him, and to strive to follow His commandments. Amen
