Of the Priesthood of Christ

We have now to consider the Priesthood of Christ; and under this head there are six points of inquiry:

  1. Whether it is fitting that Christ should be a priest?
  2. Of the victim offered by this priest;
  3. Of the effect of this priesthood;
  4. Whether the effect of His priesthood pertains to Himself, or only to others?
  5. Of the eternal duration of His priesthood;
  6. Whether He should be called "a priest according to the order of Melchisedech"?
