Looking at Hebrews

I'm glad to be getting back to teaching the parish scripture study this evening. We've been going verse by verse through the epistle to the Hebrews, a book which fascinates me, and it was frustrating to have to stop during my illness. We're getting to the section which discusses Melchizedek and the High Priesthood of Jesus Christ. To see the unity of God's revelation as we move from the old covenant to the new, from worship in the temple to its fulfillment in the Mass -- I find it a most wonderful epistle, and it's a joy to unpack its mysteries.
