Hebrews 7:26

Dec 5, 2018   //   by Charlie Garrett   //   Daily Writing, Epistles, Epistles (written), Hebrews, Hebrews (written), Writings  //  7 Comments

Wednesday, 5 December 2018

For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; Hebrews 7:26

The author just stated that Christ “is also able to save to the uttermost.” He then explained that with the words, “since he always lives to make intercession for them.” Now, he reveals the qualities that Christ possesses which make His saving of us to the uttermost possible.Read the rest

Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25

“Therefore” is based upon the argument presented in the previous verses. The author has shown numerous points which support what he will next say –

1) Jesus is a “priest forever” (7:17);

2) He has “the power of an endless life” (7:16) rather than having His priesthood based on ancestry;
3) He is a priest “according to the order of Melchizedek” (7:17) who was shown to be greater than Father Abraham (7:7);
4) Jesus’ priesthood annuls the laws of the former priesthood (7:18);
5) Jesus’ priesthood brings in “a better hope, through which we draw near to God” (7:19);
6) Jesus’ priesthood came with an oath (7:20);
7) Jesus himself has “become a surety of a better covenant” (7:22).Read the rest

But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. Hebrews 7:24

The words in the Greek place the emphasis on “unchangeable,” not on “priesthood.” In other words, it reads more correctly, “…has his priesthood unchangeable.” The priesthood of Aaron changed with the passing of each high priest; the priesthood of Jesus remains forever.Read the rest

Hebrews 7:23

Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing. Hebrews 7:23

The author now provides another case for the supremacy of Christ’s priesthood over that of the Levitical priesthood. He first says, “Also there were many priests.” The Greek more literally reads, “Also, there have been made priests many.” There was a long succession of priests, each being consecrated to the priesthood in order to meet the needs of the requirements specified by the law.Read the rest

…by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant. Hebrews 7:22

The words here reflect a sentiment similar to Hebrews 1:4 –

“having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.”

The author is slowly and meticulously showing the superiority of the various aspects and ministries of Christ in comparison to those of other entities.Read the rest
