What does Jesus do as our High Priest?

Share |

As our High Priest Jesus has, as our Substitute, fulfilled God’s Law and offered Himself as an atoning sacrifice for us. As our Advocate He also continually defends us before the Father in heaven.

Heb. 9:11-12: But Christ being come an High Priest of good things to come... He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

Gal. 4:4-5: When the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the Law, to redeem them that were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

1 Pet. 2:24: Christ himself bare our sins in his own body on the tree.

1 Joh. 2:1: If any man sin, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
