In Hebrews 5:1-10, the author begins his comparison of Christ, a priest after the order of Melchizedek, with the sons of Aaron, the levitical priests. Christ is superior to them in that He is able to sympathize with His people without sin, has learned obedience through what He suffered, and offered prayers to God for His and our deliverance. Through all of this the one who was appointed by God to be high priest has become the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him.
