The Christ the High Priest Crucifix depicts Jesus the High Priest of the Epistle to the Hebrews, who utters “It is finished!”, bows his head, and dies (John 19:30). This hand-carved solid wood crucifix is extraordinary. The corpus and wood cross together are indeed an heirloom-quality crucifix to be treasured and hung with care for the next generation!

How Can Christ on the Cross be High Priest?
A “Crucified High Priest” seems like an unimaginable combination. Every high priest was called to offer sacrifices on behalf of his people. But Jesus, the High Priest of the Epistle to the Hebrews – offers to God the definitive and once-for-all sacrifice: himself. Christ the High Priest offered up himself on the altar of his cross to be crucified, killed, and sacrificed on our behalf. The blood which flows from his pierced feet, side, and hands washes away our sins and serves as the seal of the New Covenant between God and humankind.
