Daily Sacrifices of Oblation and the High Priest Yahusha
by Rav Sha'ul

 

Paul discusses the difference between Yahusha and other High Priests who went before him. The main difference Paul points out is that the other priests died and no longer are in service to offer sacrifices. Yahusha, however, defeated death and lives eternally in the office of High Priest.

Hebrews 7

23 Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; 24 but because Yahusha lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. 25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to YHVH through him, because he always lives (a living sacrifice) to intercede for them. 26 Such a high priest truly meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens (post resurrection). 27 Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their (he and the people's) sins once for all (time) when he offered himself. 28 For the law appoints as high priests men in all their weakness; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.

To understand what Paul, a Pharisee (expert in The Torah), is writing in this letter we must understand The Torah and put his letters in context of everything he said. Paul says Yahusha was a High Priest who was holy, blameless, pure, and set apart from sinners. Again referring back to Yahusha's Mikveh when he was ordained and purified ritually and then in that perfect state resurrected eternal. Paul said that Yahusha was "unlike the other high priest" in the sense that he held a permanent priesthood because he conquered death (not because Yahusha was god).

All High Priests were Mikveh'd and supposed to be holy, blameless, pure, and set apart from sinners who offered the Passover and Atonement. The only difference is they died and stayed dead and Yahusha died and rose again. In context of Yahusha being a "living eternal sacrifice" who held a permanent position as High Priest, Yahusha did not need to offer the daily sacrifice of oblation for the sins of the people and himself. He WAS the sacrifice.

Paul uses an "interjection" which is a short phrase inserted between commas to clarify a sentence. The interjection here that is set apart by commas was "first for his own sins". An interjection can be taken out of the sentence and the sentence is still a complete thought. The sentence reads "Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer the daily sacrifice for the people". Why did Paul think it necessary to further clarify that the daily sacrifices were also for the High Priest? He was speaking about the Daily Oblation. The point Paul was making had nothing to do with Yahusha had no need for sacrifices because he was perfect. He was addressing the Torah requirements for the daily oblation and explaining that because Yahusha defeated death, his sacrificed body would stand as a living sacrifice meeting the Torah requirements of the Daily Oblation for himself and the people. Again alleviating Yahusha from having to live his entire life without sin, as his sacrifice was "for himself and for the people". No matter how you look at this, Yahusha is covered by Mikveh and his own sacrifice. When Paul states in Hebrews 7 above that Yahusha sacrificed for "their sins" he is referring back to "their" which he defined in the previous verse as "his own sin and then for the people". Paul then ends with the same declaration he made on several other occasions that The Law appoints all high priests from among men in all their weaknesses including Yahusha (they are Mikveh'd ritually clean before YHVH).

However, Paul sets Yahusha apart from the rest because of an Oath that came after (in addition to) The Law that applies only to Yahusha the High Priest, this oath he is referring to what he wrote about a few verses prior in Hebrew 7:14. That oath he was talking about he quoted is that Yahusha would be the Ruling Zadok or Ruling High Priest in Psalms:

Psalm 110:4

4 YHVH has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”

So Paul is saying here in Hebrews 7

"28 For the law appoints as high priests men in all their weakness; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever as THE RULING ZADOK "Melchizedek."

Paul is simply stating that by The Law Yahusha was consecrated a High Priest with all his weaknesses just like every other High Priest and then set apart from sinners through Mikveh and consecration. But in Yahusha's unique case, he was further made the Ruling Zadok forever by an oath made to him by YHVH. Again, demonstrating exactly why John said to Yahusha "I have need to be Mikveh'd by you" because Yahusha was the greater High Priest in the Order of Zadok. Yahusha held the title "Melchizedek" and is the Eternal High Priest by an oath to him made by YHVH.
