Sympathetic High Priest

The priesthood of Jesus is a key subject of the Book of Hebrews . He has become the “ merciful and faithful high priest ” who intercedes for “ his brethren .” This topic is anticipated in the Letter’s opening paragraph by declaring that the Son “ achieved the purification of sins ,” and therefore he “ sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high ,” where he now intercedes for his people as the “ High Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek .”
