The author describes Jesus's perfect ministry as our great High Priest. He is able to deal gently with us sinners since He Himself was tempted, but He is better than an ordinary human priest because He never sinned, so He is mighty to defeat temptation. He did not exalt himself, but was appointed by God to the Priesthood. In his suffering, Jesus set an example for us, and by His meek, lowly attitude He was heard by God and saved through death (not “from death”). “Saved” meaning, “delivered from sin”. Thus Jesus is our eternal High Priest able to help us survive a life in the flesh on earth and bring us finally to heaven.
