In exercising their Jewish priesthood, priests represented God to the people and the people to God. The chapter sets out four points of continuity between this Levitical priesthood and the priesthood of Christ, along with five points of discontinuity. Through retrieving the witness of the four Gospels to Christ's priesthood, as well as to his role as prophet and king, this chapter argues that, while the Last Supper, the crucifixion, and the resurrection were defining moments for his priesthood, that priesthood was also exercised earlier through the healing and teaching that characterized Christ's public ministry.
