Hebrews series message 9

Text: Hebrews 5:1-10

We're heading into one of my favorite sections of Scripture! Takes us all the way through chapter ten. Jesus, our Great High Priest. Here he lists four characteristics of a High Priest: chosen from the people, called by God, sympathizes with those he represents, and ministers sacrifices. Jesus does all this, and more. He's superior. He's awesome. It leads up to a critical truth: He gives eternal salvation. Keep that in mind when we hit chapter six ;-)
