A Better Priesthood - Part 3
Today, we come across one more reason Jesus claims a better priesthood than His Levitical counterparts. We know He is better in heart, for He is kind (4:14 - 16). He is better in hand, for He deals with us gently (5:1 - 6). And now, we assert His better in holiness, for He is perfect (5:7 - 10).
Our text deals with the holiness of Christ by talking about 3 things He did in the days of His flesh, things that consecrate Him and qualify Him to be our Great High Priest forever.
