Hebrews 7:11-12 (KJV) It Is Called A Church

Hebrews 7:11-12 (KJV)
If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

There is an assumption made in this passage that a Christian would do well to consider. The assumption is that the Levitical priesthood has been:
  • Changed
  • Replaced
  • Discontinued 
There is evidence of this change presented in the text but it is not the kind anyone would accept who hasn't already accepted Christ as the Messiah. An Orthodox Jew would certainly not accept it.

So many of the lessons Christians must learn simply cannot and will not be acceptable to those who reject or even question the role of Christ as the Son of God.

The Bible teaches us that Christ replaced the Levitical priesthood.
  • He did not supplement it.
  • He did not improve it.
  • He did not redirect it.
He changed it to another.

He became our High Priest.

What this means is that the Jew who gets saved is to leave his old life and religion and unite with Christ in a local congregation of believers called a church.
  • It is not a temple
  • It is not called a synagogue

It is called a church.
