Day 5: Hebrews 4:14-16

Read Hebrews 4:14-16 again.

If God is perfect in holiness and justice and, as the Son of God Jesus is also holy and just, how might sinners (v. 15: those with “weaknesses”) feel about having Jesus, the perfectly holy Son of God, as our high priest?

In contrast to how sinners like us might expect a perfectly holy high priest to think of us, what does verse 15 say about his attitude toward us?

According to verse 15, why does Jesus empathize with us in our weaknesses?

Verse 15 says that Christ felt the power of temptation just as we do, “yet he did not sin.” Why is the fact that Christ did not sin important in his role as high priest?
