Don't you see! Jesus wasn't God! He couldn't change anything, you are sinning against God by following the so called, "Christ"!!
I suppose he's right... why be persecuted for a false faith?
This is Albert. He is a modern Christian who has been reading Hebrews. He's been thinking a lot about the struggle early Jewish Christians and why the author of Hebrews chose to prove Jesus as the ultimate high priest.
Wait no! The author of Hebrews says that Jesus is the ultimate and fulfillment of the earthly high priests because he was without sin and he is able to sympathize with our weaknesses.
Little does Albert know, his research begins to take over more than just his thoughts. As he looks these questions up he is sucked into his computer into a past age.
Yes, Jesus did call himself God but that wasn't blasphemy. God called Jesus his SON at his baptism and he never says this about any of the Levite priests ...
Albert ends up in the middle of a heated argument between a Pharisee named Eleazar and a new Jewish Christian named Simeon. Eleazar is trying to convince Simeon to turn back to Judiasm, taking advantage of Simeon's doubts and fears.
Furthermore, Hebrew's author says that Jesus was not from the Levitical line of priests but form the far superior priestly line of Melchizedek.
Finally finding his courage, Albert speaks up encouraging Simeon with what he has learned from Hebrews (explaining that he will soon know what this book is of course). Eleazar and Simeon haven't even noticed Albert until now because they were so wrapped up in their argument.
Yes , I remember this is what brought me to Christianity. Knowing that Christ was human yet perfect!
But Jesus called himself God, that's blasphemy!
Albert argues that Christ comes from a much better priestly line and even compares how similar Christ and Melchizedek are. They were both kings of righteousness and peace, and Hebrews also mentions Melchizedek resembling the Son of God.
