The Priesthood of Christ

The following has been adapted from the devotionals of F.E. Marsh, a new resource coming soon to the Blue Letter Bible!

Christ, as our Savior, speaks of His saving grace. Christ, as our High Priest, tells of our His sustaining grace. Christ, as our High Priest, is seen in the Epistle to the Hebrews, as the:

Deliverer, to assure.

Hebrews 2:15
“and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.”

Helper, to sustain.

Hebrews 2:18
“For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.”

Sympathizer, to comfort.

Hebrews 4:15
“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

Forerunner, to supply.

Hebrews 6:20
“where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.”

Savior, to preserve.

Hebrews 7:25
“Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them.”

Watcher, to care.

Hebrews 10:21
“and since we have a great priest over the house of God”

Shepherd, to sanctify.

Hebrews 13:20
“Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant”
