Main point summary
Christ is of a greater order than the Levitical priesthood, because God has promised an eternal priesthood in Christ that surpasses the tribe of Levi. Christ inaugurates a new covenant greater than Levi, because he is able to save and intercede for us at all times for all time. Furthermore, Christ's priesthood is preeminent, because he, unlike Levitical priests whose mediation of the law only promised death, is perfect in every way, both in his pre-existence and in his incarnation, the most exalted in all the universe, the only one who satisfies God's law and vindicates his holiness to bring his people everlasting life--in this Christ, we have exactly what we need.
