12/10/2017  Thorny Theological Tangents                    by Bo Parker

Hebrews chapters 5 and 6 are in the midst of a long section on Jesus as High Priest. This is another case of presenting Jesus as superior to Judaism in that Jesus is a far superior high priest. We can understand how this would be meaningful to Jewish Christians who are tempted to return to Judaism. But how does Jesus as High Priest apply to our lives? One of the values of studying Hebrews is that we are called to pay attention to our Jewish roots. In drifting from those roots, we may be missing some important foundational elements of Christian faith. Jews of this time were very aware that they needed priests and a high priest to mediate between them and God. They would never dare to attempt to draw near to God themselves. This is a far cry from the popular notion of God as highly approachable.
