The Epistle to the Hebrews
The High Priest in the Bible Truth
Biblical High Priest Bible Study Quest
Happy to have you back for more Daily Bread! Back in Chapter 3, you
may remember that Paul said to think of Jesus as the Apostle and High
Priest of our profession. Here he elaborates about the duties of a
high priest, and you'll see that the high priests of the past, were
also a "shadow" of the things Jesus did.
1 For every high priest taken [chosen] from among men is
ordained for men in things pertaining to God [to serve God on their
behalf], that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:
2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant [misguided], and
on them that are out of the way [on the wrong path]; for that he
himself also is compassed with infirmity [weakness].
3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so
also for himself, to offer for sins. [Because he is weak, he offers
gifts and sacrifices for himself also.]
Notice how the description of high priest fits exactly what Jesus was
(except for the weak part). Jesus offered Himself as a gift and
sacrifice for our sins, he had compassion on the unlearned, and those
being led astray. And He was flesh and blood, so he understood the
weakness of mankind.

7 [Jesus] Who in the days of His flesh, when he had
offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears
unto Him [God] that was able to save Him from death, and was heard in
that He feared;
8 Though He were a Son, yet [still] learned He obedience
by the things which He suffered;

salvation unto all them that obey Him;

The Hebrews were difficult to teach. They were so attached to the old
ways of thinking as a resulit of being raised with unmovable
dedication to the Old Testament, that they had a hard time holding on
to the understanding of the Gospel of Christ. They probably slipped
back into their old habits frequently, so Paul encourages them to
change their old habits by practicing their new ones.
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have
need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the
oracles [messages, sayings, Truth] of God; and are become such as
have need of milk, and not of strong meat [like babies].
13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word
of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age
[mature], even [that is] those who by reason of use [by practicing]
have their senses exercised [trained] to discern both good and evil.

Biblical High Priest Bible Study Summary
Many people are slow of understanding. We all have our moments.
Christianity is a lifestyle that requires constant refreshing,
maintenance and reminder. Challenge yourself to establish new good
habits that strengthen your Christianity and glorify God, and also
ones that help you to recognize and discern good and evil. Renew your
mind daily. This could include more Bible study or a reflection of
each day by writing a journal and documenting your daily trials and
tribulations and how you dealt with them. Don't forget to write the
good stuff too! For an interesting look at how to establish a new
habit or break an old one, see The
Mercy Seat in our Exodus section of Daily Bread. Can't wait
until next time when we share more Daily Bread together, so hurry
