Hebrews 5:6

In another place (en eterwi). That is Psalms 110:4 . It is this crucial passage by which the author will prove the superiority of Jesus to Aaron as high priest. Only the word priest (iereu) occurs here which the author uses as synonymous with high priest (arciereu). The point lies in the meaning of the phrase "After the order of Melchizedek" (kata thn taxin Melcisedek). But at this point the only thing pressed is the fact of the divine appointment of Jesus as priest. He returns to this point ( Psalms 5:10-7:28 ).
