The Perfect High Priest1 Every high priest is appointed from among men to represent [them] in matters relating to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and misguided, since he himself is beset by weakness. 3 That is why he is obligated to offer sacrifices for his own sins, as well as for [the sins of] the people. 4 No one takes [this] honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron [was] . 5 So also Christ did not take upon Himself the glory of becoming a high priest, but [He was called] by the [One who] said to Him: “You are My Son; today I have become Your Father.” ▼
▼ Psalm 2:7; literal today I have begotten You6 And in another [passage] [God] says: “You [are] a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.” ▼
▼ Psalm 110:47 During the days of [Jesus’] earthly [life] , He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the [One who] could save Him from death, and He was heard because of [His] reverence. 8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from what He suffered. 9 And having been made perfect, He became [the] source of eternal salvation to all who obey Him 10 [and] was designated by God [as] high priest in the order of Melchizedek.
Warning against Drifting Away11 We [have] much to say about [this] , [but it is] hard to explain, because you are dull of hearing. 12 Although by [this] time you ought to be teachers, you need [someone] to reteach you the basic principles of God’s word. You need milk, not solid food! 13 Everyone who lives on milk is [still] an infant, inexperienced in [the] message of righteousness. 14 But solid food is [for the] mature, who by constant use have trained [their] sensibilities to distinguish good [from] evil.
