Paul’s Letter to the Hebrews    7: 23-28

7:23 And certainly, so many of the others became priests because, due to death, they were prohibited from continuing.
7:24 But this man, because he continues forever, has an everlasting priesthood.
7:25 And for this reason, he is able, continuously, to save those who approach God through him, since he is ever alive to make intercession on our behalf.
7:26 For it was fitting that we should have such a High Priest: holy, innocent, undefiled, set apart from sinners, and exalted higher than the heavens.
7:27 And he has no need, daily, in the manner of other priests, to offer sacrifices, first for his own sins, and then for those of the people. For he has done this once, by offering himself.
7:28 For the law appoints men as priests, though they have infirmities. But, by the word of the oath that is after the law, the Son has been perfected for eternity.
