I appreciated your comments on Hebrews 7:27.
I read somewhere that in addition to what you mention about Jesus being perfect, another way in which Jesus superceded the OT High Priests was of course that, unlike the constant revolving door of High Priests who died and were then replaced by a different High Priest, Jesus is eternal.
I'm also interested in this term "High Priest". As far as I can gather, it seems to mean the highest religious authority in the land -- the one who intercedes with God for us.
Elsewhere in Hebrews, the author of Hebrews refers to Jesus as "a high priest in the order of Melchizedek." Is it correct to assume here that the author is trying to convince this fellow Hebrews that Jesus is the greatest, ultimate religious authority? My reason for suggesting this is that in the OT, Abraham received a covenant from God that he would be the father of the people and land of Israel. As such, the Hebrew people revered him as no other. So, if Abraham recognized (and even tithed to) Mel as his high priest, then the Hebrews likewise would have revered Mel. So, in the NT, the author of Hebrews seems to be trying to convince his readers that just as they have considered Mel as their high priest, now it is time to place Jesus in that same exalted company. Am I interpreting this correctly?

Kristin,
A week ago you commented on how much you love Tom Dooley's readings of the Bible. You said you'd like to buy the recordings but couldn't find them with Tom doing the reading.

I found this link from MasterMedia Ministries which states that it IS Tom Dooley doing the reading!
