Our Aaronic High Priest Removed Sin and our Kingly High Priest Ministers God into us

The book of Hebrews is on the priesthood in its three aspects: the Aaronic priesthood (Christ offered Himself to God as the unique sacrifice for our sins), the kingly priesthood (Christ as our kingly High Priest ministers God into us), and the divine priesthood (Christ is saving us to the uttermost).

Enjoying Christ’s Ministry as a High Priest according to the Order of Melchizedek
