High Priest in the Order of Melchizedek

Saturday, October 15, 2016

This series aims to answer some foundational questions about the work of Yeshua in regard to his function as both a sacrificial offering and the high priest "in the order of Melchizedek." Did Yeshua fulfill both the sacrificial system and the function of the Levitical priesthood through his work on the cross? Should Believers still observe Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and anticipate a time when the Holy Temple, and hence sacrificial system, will be restored? 

In this class we look at the book of Hebrews and how it connects Yeshua as a “high priest in the order of Melchizedek.” How does this work? The author of Hebrews says, “Now if perfection had been attainable through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need would there have been for another priest to arise after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one named after the order of Aaron? For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well.” (Heb. 7:11-12)

Does Yeshua's priesthood supersede both the Aaronic priesthood and the Torah? It sure sounds like it from a surface reading of the text. Join us in this eye-opening class to find out more.
