If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the law was given to the people), why was there still need for another priest to come – one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? (Hebrews 7:11)

Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office, but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. (Hebrews 7:23-25)

He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. (Hebrews 7:27)

The old Levitical system consisted of temporary priests who imperfectly offered sacrifices to God on behalf of sinners. With Jesus we have the one and only perfect and eternal priest who has completely redeemed us from the sin which we cannot avoid on our own.

This in a nutshell is the good news!
