What was the last significant thing you had to replace? Maybe it was a washing machine or a refrigerator. Perhaps it was a car. These items and things like them are useful. They fill necessary roles in today’s life. But they don’t last forever. They wear out. They break down. And sometimes we replace them because new models come along that meet our needs even better.
The Levitical priesthood was insufficient to mend the broken relationship that exists between mankind and God. We needed a superior priest with a superior ministry. Hebrews chapter seven clearly shows why Jesus’ priesthood is both superior and permanent!
