Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum; we have such a high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens.
If the question was raise, what makes Jesus our high priest? The answer is found in who Jesus is and what He done reconciling man back to God the Father. Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God who was with God in the beginning and became flesh as the final revelation of the Father. Jesus took on the sins of the world by sacrificing His life for the life of many. He was the perfect sacrifice that needed no atonement because He was the priest and the sacrifice.
Jesus Christ is in heaven at the right hand of the Father making intercessions for all believers. Jesus mediated a better covenant through His shed blood, and with this covenant all believers have constant access to God the Father. God the Father bestows His grace upon all believers through the regenerating work of Christ (John 3:3).
Jesus as our high priest can sympathize with believers and will aid them in any situation as well as help them to overcome their temptations (2:18; 4:15-16). We need His help because Satan is busy.
We can conclude then that by the works of Christ makes Him our high priest who is Alpha and Omega; He knows all and supplies all our needs.
