Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 7:27

People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 7:27


Heb 7:27 Who needeth not daily . . . to offer up sacrifices. The daily sacrifice was offered on the altar, as those high priests, under the direction of the high priest, first for his own sins, and then for the people's, for the sins of the whole nation, including himself. For this he did once, when he offered up himself. Instead of the daily offering for himself and others, Christ made but one offering, himself, when he died upon the cross. This offering was complete when he, as the high priest, ascended into the Holy of Holies above to intercede for the sins of his people. The perfect high priest had offered the perfect sacrifice and had dedicated the new and better covenant. Christ made his offering as a priest in "The true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man" (Heb 8:2).

Discussion for Hebrews 7

  • Steve morrow
    Hebrews 7:11 if therefore perfection were by the levitical priesthood for under it the people received the law what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchizedek and not be called after the order of Aaron 7:12 for the priesthood being changed there is of necessity a change also of the law
  • A disciple
    Jimmy; He that denies Jesus Christ having come in flesh is Antichrist. But the whole testimony of the Scriptures is that the Anointed would come in flesh, born of a woman, to save the world and undo the works of the devil. Your hostility is nothing new; it started with Cain, and spread over the whole earth because of Nimrod, and is the root of the fierceness and rage of the heathen against Christ!
  • Jimmy a disciple of Jesus
    sorry "a disciple" you are wrong..plainly vs 3 says he didnt have a mother or father without beginning or end...just cause our peanut of a brain cant fathom it doesnt mean to make up things just to ease our thinking or to fit our religion!!!
  • A disciple
    Bet; "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God.." Melchizedek naturally DID have a father and mother; but with regard to the recorded genealogies of the Nations, he appears as though not from any of them. In this was he made a type of Jesus the Son of God the Anointed. I hope that answers your question.

    How can Paul equate Melchisedec to Jesus, who is God on earth among us????
