Bible Notes

Hebrews 7:26-28 (30.09.22)

Hebrews 7:26-28 (NIVUK)
26 Such a high priest truly meets our need ā€“ one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. 27 Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. 28 For the law appoints as high priests men in all their weakness; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect for ever.

And this is where the story of Melchizedek ultimately takes us, to Jesus, the high priest who offers himself for his people, for us, the perfect, complete and sufficient sacrifice, and so through Abraham’s descendent, God does indeed bless the world!

…once again I look upon the cross where you died
I’m humbled by your mercy and I’m broken inside
Once again I thank you
Once again I pour out my life
(Matt Redman, Once Again)
