Teaching Outline Week 18

The Joy in Responsibility

(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)


Jesus, Intercessor

Hebrews 7:1-25 


The Big Picture – The Priesthood (Verses 1-24)

The old Priesthood (in the order of Aaron) is inadequate.

Many temporary Priests

Came from a legal requirement

Under the Law – that cannot make anyone perfect


The new Priesthood (in the order of Melchizedek) is eternal.

One High Priest forever

Came from an indestructible life

Jesus, the guarantor of a better covenant

The Main Point (Verse 25)

Jesus is able to save forever…

…because he lives to make intercession for them (everyone who draws near to God through him)

The Priesthood answers the question: From what am I being saved?

Sin  <Priesthood> Holy

The main point answers the question: What does my salvation look like?

Salvation is not static.

I believed and I was saved… and … Jesus is saving me today and forever.


What do I need? To continue to draw near to God through Jesus.

My life needs everything in it that cause affections toward Jesus.
