A priest is someone who acts as God’s representative to his people, Israel. One priest was selected to be the high priest, a position that they would hold for life. The first high priest was Moses’ brother, Aaron.
Key verse about High Priest: And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger and High Priest (Hebrews 3:1, NLT).
