We have this kind of high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, a minister of the sanctuary and the true tabernacle that was set up by the Lord and not man. Hebrews 8:1-2
What was the high priest’s job?
It boiled down to two things.
Intercession and atonement.
Acting as the mediator between sinful man and the holy God.
Ensuring that the sins of the people were covered.
Jesus took care of our sins once for all.
So He doesn’t have to handle sacrifices.
But He mediates, or ministers, everything else we bring to God.
We cannot approach God except through Christ.
Christ our High Priest.
