  • Levi Priest Hood had 81 High Priests starting from Aaron to Caiaphas. All died.
  • Levi Priest Hood fails

Melchizedek Priest Hood

  • Only blessings came from the mouth of Melchizedek
  • No mention of the death of Melchizedek in Bible
  • Everlasting Priest Hood.
  • Jesus is the High Priest forever
  • Jesus Priesthood never fails

Blessing for the people depends on how good the High Priest is

  • Jesus is our High Priest.
  • Jesus always accepted before God
  • You are always accepted before God
