Hebrews 7:11-14

11 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? 12 For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also. 13 He of whom these things are said belonged to a different tribe, and no one from that tribe has ever served at the altar. 14 For it is clear that our Lord descended from Judah, and in regard to that tribe Moses said nothing about priests.

One response to “Hebrews 7:11-14

  1. The Levites were the keepers of the priesthood under the Law. Christ came and established a new priesthood, under grace, and He was from Judah. He brought a new order, a clean break, and a clear way ahead. But He did not change our responsibility to obey, honor, and serve God, and to love Him and His way with all our hearts.
