Who Gives Kudos:



 

  

Who is the real High Priest

Jesus our High Priest


 

The writer of Hebrews talks about how the priest hood changed

Malchisedek was for the gentiles

Aarons was for the Jews - 

Order of Aaron and Jesus

 

Jesus was the Great High priest – both with Gentiles and Jews 

 

With the new covenant which was instituted in the upper room – last supper 

 

Read

 

Hebrews 5:6, 10,

Heb 6:20

Heb 7:11.

Heb 7: 17

Heb 7: 21

 

Jesus fulfilled the appointment as King (Luke 23:28)

He also fulfilled the office of Prophet (Luke 24:19)

 

 

But he could not fulfil the office of Priest when the Priesthood of Aaron was there – Luke & 24-28

 

In the temple there were baths where people had to immerse before they did anything priestly  but Jesus went to Jordan (a place of change) to John the Baptist who was from the actual priestly line of Aaron to get immersed – John’s parents were ( both) from Aaron’s line

 

At the baptism Jesus went down as the King of the Jews and came up as King of Righteousness

 

The priesthood was changed when he got baptised – one high priest passes a mantle to another by emersion

 

Significance of priestly garment and the colours of the garment

White robe signified righteousness

Blue tunic signified the  Holy Spirit (the garment was reinforced near the neck so that they would not tear their clothes. If you tear their priestly garments they would die- Lev10: 12) 

Linen breeches – salvation  

 

 

Something very significant and awesome happened at the Trial of Jesus at the house of Caiaphas (even prison cells)

Lev 5: 21

The high priest could ask a question with an oath and if a person did not answer he is guilty

Jesus was quiet up to this point but then answers the high priest by quoting the sriptures (Psalm 110)

When Jesus answered Caiaphas who was the high priest at that time through political means ( he was appointed by the Romans), the high priest tares his clothes  

 

 So when Caiaphas tore his clothes he lost his priesthood 

SO JESUS BECAME THE RIGHTFUL HIGH PRIEST – Imagine that! 

Mood: happy
