For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever. Hebrews 7:28

This is the final verse of Chapter 7. Before completing the chapter, the author provides another contrast between those high priests under the law and Jesus, the High Priest of the New Covenant.Read the rest

…who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. Hebrews 7:27

This verse is a climax of the subject matter so far discussed over the past many verses concerning the superiority of Christ’s priesthood over that of Aaron.Read the rest

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
