464. A Change of Priesthood

The Jewish people received the Old Covenant law through the Levitical priesthood. Because the law made nothing perfect, there was a need for another priest to arise (Jesus). The book of Hebrews explains that where there is a change of priesthood, there is a change of law also. When the religious world attempts to bring back the old commandments and mix them into the New Covenant, they should also be bringing back the old priesthood. Of course, this wouldn't bring perfection, life or forgiveness any more than the commandments themselves. Jesus established a permanent priesthood with something completely new, He took away the first covenant in order to establish the new one.
