The Old Covenant was flawed because it could not perfect those who were under it nor did it promise to provide the enabling power to keep it. Not so with the New Covenant. This covenant not only has the power to perfect people through the blood of Christ, but it promises enablement to those with the Spirit. Pastor Josh uses the analogy of dishwashers to help us grasp these important and deep concepts.
Jesus is no Aaronic priest. His priesthood is of a different order, that of Melchizedek. Several important things separate this priesthood from the Aaronic, but the big one is that Jesus, the final High Priest, is able to save eternally and completely those who come to God through him.
Who is the High Priest and what does he do? How is this related to Jesus Christ? As we begin to better understand the role of the High Priest we will be in a better position as Christians to understand who Jesus is and what he has done for us.
