Jesus, the Source of Eternal Salvation
I love Hebrews—its logic and structure are fascinating! This week we’ll dig into Hebrews 5:1–10 which begins the comparison between Jesus and the Old Testament Levitical priesthood. The argument is started here and then picks back up in Hebrews 7.
These chapters are some of the more challenging to follow in the letter, so I really encourage you to read Hebrews 5–7 in one sitting if you can a time or two. You might want to read Genesis 14 as well where Melchizedek, this mysterious figure, makes his only appearance.
So, what does this text have to do with us? I hope to explain it by answering three questions: 1) What did Old Testament priests do? 2) Who is Melchizedek and why is he important? 3) Why is Jesus our better high priest?
I’m looking forward to this text!
See you Sunday!
