Jesus The High Priest

Hebrews 3:1

Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus.

The term priest is one who speaks or relates to God for the people of ones self, whereas a prophet speaks to the people for God saying "what thus saith the Lord." Moses, Jeremiah and Isaiah are examples of prophets in the Old Testament who spoke to the people for God. The office of the priest in the Old Testament was from two major lines and they were Aaronic (Exodus 28:1) and Levitical (Hebrews 7:11; Leviticus 6:2-5). The priests of the Old Testament made sacrifices to God for the people and even taught them the law and they entered into the holiest of holy place in the temple or tabernacle to met with God (Leviticus 4:26; Ezekiel 42:13-14; Luke 1:8-11).
What makes Jesus our High Priest is that His one-time sacrifice cleared the way for all believers to enter God presence and this can be done as often as we the believer feels the need. Jesus' sacrificial death removed to the need for repeated ceremonial sacrifices made by the priest and they themselves had to get right with God before making atonements for others. Jesus had no sin to atone for because He is God in the second person and is holy. Jesus as our high Priest continues to make intercessions for us to God. Lastly, when God looks at sinful man He sees the righteousness of His Son because through Christ's blood our sins have been pardoned.
Jesus our high Priest because He paid our sin debt.
