THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE
Ministers must be called of God as was Aaron—Christ was a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek—Jesus Christ is the author of eternal salvation.
every high priest taken from among men is aordained
for men in things pertaining
to God, that he may offer both gifts and bsacrifices
Who can have acompassion
on the ignorant, and on them that are bout
of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for asins
And no man taketh this ahonour
unto himself, but he that is bcalled
of God, as was cAaron
So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my aSon
, to day have I begotten thee.
in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up bprayers
and supplications with cstrong
crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard din
that he feared;
of God an bhigh
priest after the order of Melchisedec.
Of whom we have many things to say, and ahard
to be buttered
, seeing ye are dull of chearing
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be
the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of amilk
, and not of strong meat.
For every one that useth amilk is
unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
