Summary

The role of priest was a vital one. The priest stood between God and His people interceding for them and seeking God's favour on their behalf. The priests themselves were ordinary people, prone to all the temptations of the people they served.

The priesthood of Old Testament Israel saw many changes in its lifespan. There were times of revival and times when the priesthood was completely abandoned. Like the people they served, these priests often fell short of the purpose of God for their lives. Those who themselves were prone to sin could not ultimately give victory over humankind's greatest enemy.

The Lord Jesus did what no Old Testament priest could. He provided a means of forgiveness and an answer to the separation between God and humankind. This study shows how the priesthood of the Old Testament pointed to Christ as its ultimate fulfilment.
