But This Man
Hebrews 7:23-24 (KJV) And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
I hope you recognize this man, this forever priest spoken of in this scripture. He is set apart from all other priests on this earth. Though there were many in ancient times and today, this man was unique from every other one.
Indeed, I hope you know this man is pointing to none other than Jesus Christ, one hundred percent man and one hundred percent God in the flesh. Wow! Wrap your head around that statement. This priest is none other than God and man in the flesh.
The focus here on continuing forever points to Jesus Christ’s eternal reign. Therefore, His priesthood is above all other priests because He will live and reign perpetually. All other earthly priests have a limit to their priesthood and their life. However, the priesthood of Jesus Christ will remain forever.
