of christ christ's priestly office consists of these two parts, (1) the offering up of himself as a sacrifice, and (2) making continual intercession for us. when on earth he made intercession for his people (luke 23:34; john 17:20; heb. 5:7); but now he exercises this function of his priesthood in heaven, where he is said to appear in the presence of god for us (heb. 9:12,24). his advocacy with the father for his people rests on the basis of his own all-perfect sacrifice. thus he pleads for and obtains the fulfilment of all the promises of the everlasting covenant (1 john 2:1; john 17:24; heb. 7:25). he can be "touched with the feeling of our infirmities," and is both a merciful and a faithful high priest (heb. 2:17, 18; 4:15, 16). this intercession is an essential part of his mediatorial work. through him we have "access" to the father (john 14:6; eph. 2:18; 3:12). "the communion of his people with the father will ever be sustained through him as mediatorial priest" (ps. 110:4; rev. 7:17).
