The prophecy of the Lord Jesus for our consideration and edification, written centuries prior to His earthly existence is
|A Faithful Priest|
|Old Testament Prophecy|
|1 Samuel 2:35|
|And I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who shall do according to what is in my heart and in my mind. And I will build him a sure house, and he shall go in and out before my anointed forever.|
|New Testament Fullfillment|
|Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.|
|Heb 3:1-3, 6|
|Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession,|
who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house.
For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses–as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself.
but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.
|but he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever.|
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.
