Marsha Iddings: Once For All Sacrifice & Priest (Hebrews 7:26-28 ESV)

For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. For the law appoints men in their weakness as high priests, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever. (Hebrews 7:26-28 ESV)

Jesus is our perfect high priest.  No other is needed!  All those religions who have priests need to study Hebrews.  It clearly points out that there is no need for earthly priests any more.  Jesus has filled the office of priest forever and perfectly. He is our once for all sacrifice and priest all wrapped up in one.  This is wonderful news!
