Psalm 110 Bible Study
1. Jesus Christ is our high priest
Jesus Christ is our high priest. He is a mediator between God and the followers. He often intercede for us to God. In 1 Timothy 2:5, for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. In Hebrews 12:24, and to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel. In Hebrews 9:15, and for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. In Hebrews 8:6, but now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises. In Galatians 3:20, now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
