The extent to which God went so that we might understand the magnitude of the sacrifice of Jesus is wonderful beyond comprehension. The establishment of the priesthood, the job of the High Priest, the requirements for sacrifices, the construction and design of the Tabernacle–all were done so that we might grasp how significant is the death of Christ on our behalf. . The repetition of sacrifices and the magnitude of offerings given all lead up to the final, once for all sacrifice of Jesus. He is God’s great High Priest who is vastly superior to all priests who preceded him. He is the perfect atoning sacrifice for sin that has brought full atonement so that we might never need to suffer under the guilt and condemnation of sin. May we all respond by trusting in the work of our faithful High Priest and being ever mindful of his constant intercession on our behalf, may we become more like him.
