Good Friday Lesson

Let us go, therefore,
with confidence into the presence of God
that we may obtain mercy and find favor in time of need.

For every representative taken from among us
is appointed to act on our behalf
in the things that relate to God.

They offer gifts and sacrifices for sin
and have compassion on those who are ignorant and err,
because they also are encompassed with weakness.

So too,
Christ did not seek glory but was chosen by God who said,
"You are my Beloved; this day have I begotten you."

God also said, "You are the Anointed One
according to the order of Melchizedek."

Though anointed,
Jesus learned obedience through suffering.
became the source of eternal salvation,
and was appointed by God as our representative
according to the order of Melchizedek.

(Hebrews 4:16-5:10)
