Jesus is greater than angels. Greater than Moses. Greater than the high priests. And now in chapter 7, he is greater than Melchizedek, who made a rather brief and somewhat strange appearance in Genesis with Abraham.
But through the years, Melchizedek war revered as a mysterious, holy priest, a prefigurement of some God initiated line.
And Jesus is from that line.
And "Such a high priest truly meets our need." (v. 26)
Jesus...meets our need. Truly.
And these days, our need is great.
But above all...
For Christ Himself.
We get Him. That is our reward. That is our purpose. That is all we need.
