The main point we want to make is this: We do have this kind of chief priest. This chief priest has received the highest position, the throne of majesty in heaven.
He serves as priest of the holy place and of the true tent set up by the Lord and not by any human.
Every chief priest is appointed to offer gifts and sacrifices. Therefore, this chief priest had to offer something.
If he were on earth, he would not even be a priest. On earth [other] priests offer gifts by following the instructions that Moses gave.
They serve at a place that is a pattern, a shadow, of what is in heaven. When Moses was about to make the tent, God warned him, "Be sure to make everything based on the plan I showed you on the mountain."
Jesus has been given a priestly work that is superior to the Levitical priests' work. He also brings a better promise from God that is based on better guarantees.
