Jesus the Great High Priest “We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.” - Mar 14:58 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. he spake of the temple of his body.” - Jhn 2:19 The function of the High priest was to make remission for sins of the people once a year through the shedding of blood from goats and rams. In doing so he was making intercession for the people. What Jesus did for us on the cross was amazing his death was symbolic in many ways. The purpose of this is to discuss from the view point of Jesus as the great high priest who destroyed the old traditions and he himself took on the sins of the people and went before God. In doing so he 1. Bore all our sins and made it possible for us to get to heaven- Jhn 3:16 2. Tore the veil so that we may approach the throne of God also- 3.

But into the second [went] the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and [for] the errors of the people” In all truth Jesus is the temple. In scripture as portrayed in Hebrews his flesh is compared to as a veil “By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;“ And in Revelation “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” So when people accused Jesus by saying “We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.” Like all of us they were missing the point and the meaning when Jesus proclaimed “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” He meant he was destroying the old traditions of man with offering up blood and he himself was

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
