A life eternal

After Hebrews 7:25-28

This priest, this sole member

of the order of Melchizedek,

this king able to save those

who draw near, this priest

is holy. This priest is

innocent. This priest is

unstained. This priest is

separated. This priest is

exalted. This priest makes

no sacrifices, because

this priest was

the sacrifice.
