We looked in Isaiah how the ‘New’ is in the ‘Old’ concealed.
Here we can see a book where the ‘Old’ is by the ‘New’ revealed.
We are going to use the example of a priest.
What is a priest?
Look at Hebrews chapter 5v1 – Someone who represents people before God.
Look at Hebrews 4v14-16 – Jesus is our high priest.
Give a bit of background of the high priest in the old testament.
Aaron, Moses brother was the first Jewish high priest (Exodus 28v1) who was to represent the Jewish people before God.
However, there was a high priest mentioned earlier in the bible. Read Genesis 14v16-18.
– Brought bread and wine
– Blessed Abram
– Received a tithe from Abram.
Look also at Psalm 110v4, Hebrews 5v6 and Hebrews 5v10.
Jesus is our high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
So the ‘Old’ is by the ‘New’ revealed.
