The Consecrated Way to Christian Perfection
1:1-4, 8 Jesus is exalted above the angels - as God.
2:9, 14-18 Jesus' condescension, down to man's level, to become man's High Priest.

5:5-6, 9-10 Jesus is as Melchizedek. Chosen & prepared by God, v.8.
6:17-20 As Melchizedek, Jesus guarantees our hope for the Promise to inherit the kingdom.
7: Jesus is as Melchizedek by God's oath (20-21, 28), & His own endless life (15-17, 24-25).
8: As Melchizedek, Jesus mediates in Heaven (v.1-2), the New Covenant (v.6, 10), to perfect
us so that we can inherit the kingdom (v.11-12).

perfect obedience also, that we may receive the Promise (v.36).
