  • God took an oath that Christ would always be a priest, but he never did this for any other priest. - Hebrews 7:20

  • Only to Jesus did he say, "The Lord has taken an oath and will not break his vow: `You are a priest forever.' "*4 - Hebrews 7:21

  • If he were here on earth, he would not even be a priest, since there already are priests who offer the gifts required by the law of Moses. - Hebrews 8:4

  • But our High Priest has been given a ministry that is far superior to the ministry of those who serve under the old laws, for he is the one who guarantees for us a better covenant with God, based on better promises. - Hebrews 8:6
