Hebrews 7:11–14 (ESV)

Jesus Compared to Melchizedek  (Part 1)

11 Now if perfection had been attainable through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need would there have been for another priest to arise after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one named after the order of Aaron? 12 For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well. 13 For the one of whom these things are spoken belonged to another tribe, from which no one has ever served at the altar. 14 For it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah, and in connection with that tribe Moses said nothing about priests.


The laws of the Old Testament established a Levitical priesthood with laws and rules of how to atone for sins through sacrifices.  Melchizedek was not part of the Levitical priesthood, and neither was Jesus.  Jesus brings in a new way of atoning for the sins of the people.  He makes himself the sacrificial lamb.  The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.


I pray:  O Lord, you are the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.  Have mercy on me.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
