A Crucified High Priest?
A “Crucified High Priest” seems at first glance to be an unintelligible combination. The High Priest is supposed to offer sacrifices on behalf of the people, not be killed himself! Yet, Jesus as the “High Priest” of Hebrews offered to God the most fitting and acceptable of all sacrifices: himself. Christ the High Priest is sacrificed on our behalf in his crucifixion. It the blood of his crucifixion which washes away our sins and seals the New Covenant.
