Hebrews 7:25: The Perfect Priest

Here the writer proclaims that Jesus Christ becomes the high priest for us all, abolishing forever the need for a human priesthood. Priestly rituals under the law are of only temporary benefit, whereas the work of Jesus Christ reigns complete and eternal. The sacrificial lambs of Leviticus die permanently, while Jesus rises gloriously from the dead and reigns for all eternity at the right hand of God. Thus, we serve a living Savior who, as our perfect and eternal high priest, continually intercedes for us with the Father.
