Part 2:
The Work of Christ | Hebrews 4:14-10
The Work of Christ is revealed in priestly imagery to emphasize the necessity and sufficiency of his “once-for-all” (9:12; 10:10) sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins. Jesus is the merciful high priest who is able “to sympathize with our weaknesses” (4:15) for in his incarnation he was “made like his brothers in every respect” (2:17) and “in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin” (4:15). His blood shed for us gives us boldness and confidence to “draw near to the throne of grace” (4:16) through praise and prayer.
