Jesus Our Priest

The portrait of Jesus that emerges from the rich letter to the Hebrews is one of priest. A priest stands in the gap between sinful man and Holy God. And unlike every earthly priest who came before, Jesus does what none of them could do!

His was a life of continual bodily, mental, and spiritual labour; his whole man was exercised. But now he rests; there is no more toil for him now; here is no more sweat of blood, no more the weary foot, no more the aching head. No more has he to do. He sits still,and the very fact that he sits still, and rests, and is at ease, proves that his work is finished and is complete. – Charles Spurgeon
