HS #6 – “Jesus as Priest”
Review – (Understanding the Vision)
Jn 16:7 – “But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.”
This leads us to the three offices (important in OT)
Tanner talked about Jesus as King
Look at Jesus, anointed with the Holy Spirit, fulfills the office of Priest
What was the roll of a priest?
How did Jesus fulfill this roll?
Heb 9:11-14 - When Christ came as high priest of the good things that are already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not man-made, that is to say, not a part of this creation. 12 He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. 14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
Jesus also forgave sins in His ministry
Big correlation between Sin & Sickness in the OT
What does this mean for us?
Palm Sunday – Jesus is coming riding in as a Living Sacrifice (unblemished lamb)
