JESUS CHRIST IS OUR GREAT HIGH PRIEST
Our midweek Lent this year will focus on the New Testament letter to the Hebrews. This letter was written to people with a strong background in the Old Testament, including the sacrificial system of worship God had used to point ahead to Jesus Christ. Our sins need to be atoned for. A sacrifice must be made. But the price for sin is too steep to be paid by our lives or the lives of any animal. That’s why Jesus came: to be the perfect priest offering the perfect sacrifice (himself!) so that he might once for all pay for the sin of the whole world.
