Jesus is “The Point”

But because Jesus lives forever, his priesthood lasts forever. Therefore he is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. (Hebrews 7:24, 25 NLT)

The Old Testament describes in great detail the role of the high priest. Every detail given by God regarding the sacrifices, the celebrations, the sanctuary and/or tabernacle, the responsibilities and the blessings, were once thought to be “the point” God was trying to communicate to his people.

Actually, each of those details was simply a picture, an image, a “replica” of the reality of heaven’s tabernacle, and the sacrifice of ONE Lamb, made by the Perfect Priest.

The writer of Hebrews takes time to draw these connections for the Jewish readers. Jesus is the fulfillment of the Law. Jesus is the Sacrifice. Jesus is the High Priest.

Jesus is “the point.”

So let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the Author an the Finisher of our faith!
