Advent Calendar Day 23 – Wiseman #2

Matthew 2:11  …Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of… frankincense…

The second wiseman gave Jesus a gift of frankincense.  This gift signified that Jesus was to be our High Priest.  It was used by priests to offer sacrifices to God.  Jesus, today, is at the right hand of the Father interceding for us.  The book of Hebrews lays a great case for Jesus being the High Priest.

Jesus sacrificed His body once for all, for our sins.  He is the great sacrificial Lamb of God.  The priests in the Old Testament were always making sacrifices to atone for the people.  Jesus did it one time for all.  His sacrifice covers all of our sins.  We must choose to apply it our sins, by coming to Him by faith.
