New covenant priesthood

donadams

Only Jesus Christ: the way, the truth, the life!

There are two new covenant priesthood’s!

One: ministerial!
Two: royal priesthood of those who are in Christ!

Not of the old covenant priesthood of the order Levi with Arron the high priest.

But new covenant priesthood of the order of melchisedec with Christ as high priest.

Chirst is high priest:
Christ is head of the universal church:
Note: These indicate a hierarchy over low priests of the same ministerial order.

Jesus Christ at the last supper ordained the Apostles and their successors the bishops in the ministerial order of melchisedec!
 
Ministerial priesthood: “apostles & their successors, and those they ordain” “low priests” under the authority of Christ the “high priest”!

With priestly ministry:
Mk 3:14 “ordained”
Matt 22:14 Jn 15:16 “chosen” “ordained”
Jn 20:21 “sent by Christ with His authority”
Jn 20:23 “power to forgive sins”
Acts 1:8 “anointing with power”
acts 1:15-26 “ministry / bishop”
Acts 2:38-39 “administered sacraments”
acts 14:23 “ordained”
Acts 16:4 “ordained “
Rom 15:16 “minister / sanctify”
1 cor 9:14 “ordained”
1 Tim 2:7 “ordained”
1 Tim 3:1-2 “bishop”
1 Tim 4:14 “priest” “priestly ministry”
Phil 1:1 “bishops deacons”
James 5:14 “anointing with oil”

The ministerial priesthood acts in “the person of Christ” so it is Christ who acts thru them vicariously.
2 cor 2:10 Jn 15:5 eph 5:24


Dogma:

235. Holy Orders is a true and proper Sacrament which was instituted by Christ.
236. The consecration of priests is a Sacrament.


Holy Apostolic council of Trent: with the teaching authority of Jesus Christ! Binding all Christians Matt 16:18-19 & 18:18 Matt 28:19 Jn 20:21

CANON I.-If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law were not all instituted by Jesus Christ, our Lord; or, that they are more, or less, than seven, to wit, Baptism, Confirmation, the Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction, Order, and Matrimony; or even that any one of these seven is not truly and properly a sacrament; let him be anathema.

CANON II.-If any one saith, that these said sacraments of the New Law do not differ from the sacramnets of the Old Law, save that the ceremonies are different, and different the outward rites; let him be anathema.
 
The office or duty of a priest is to “offer sacrifice”!

Christ is eternal priest heb 7:17

Christ is high priest heb 8:1 meaning he has authority over other priests of the same ministerial order and sacrifice!

Mal 1:11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts.

“Pure offering” or clean oblation or an unbloody sacrifice!
 
Propitiatory Sacrifice of Christ!

Jn 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

1 Jn 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

1 Jn 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
