Hebrews: The Greatness of Christ

Able to Save to the Uttermost


  • Three More Comparisons

            Temporary Vs. Eternal

            Sinful Vs. Holy

            Weakness Vs. Perfection


  • The Fitting Priest: Just What We Need  


Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 7:23-28. The writer makes several more comparisons between Jesus and the Levitical priesthood. What are they and what is their significance?
  2. Consider verse 25. What does the word “uttermost” communicate or emphasize (NAS: forever; NIV: completely)?
  3. What is intercession? Why is it so good to have a priest who “always lives to make intercession”?
  4. The writer says, “it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest”? How is it “fitting”? Why do we need a priest?
  5. Do you ever feel that you cannot “be saved” or there is some part of you that is beyond hope? What causes such feelings? How can the truth of Christ’s priesthood minister to you? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

Hebrews 7:25 Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. (ESV)
