INTRODUCTION. What do you think Jesus is doing right now? Many people believe that after the cross, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus to heaven, He is now in retirement until He returns. Nothing could be further from the truth. He has never been more active. Among other things, He is in heaven acting as our High Priest to hear our pleas and feel our pain. This is one of the lesser known facts about Christianity—Jesus is now our great High Priest. The idea of having a high priest may seem strange to our beliefs especially since talk of a high priest is predominant in the Old Testament. This week’s lesson tells us that we have Someone in heaven who cares. This caring is demonstrated in many ways, and especially in the fact that our LORD Jesus Christ prays for us. He cares enough to plead with the Father on our behalf.
