Of the thynges which we have spoke this is the pyth: that we have soche an hye preste that is sitten on ye right honde of the seate of maieste in heven
and is a minister of holy thynges and of the very tabernacle which God pyght and not ma.
For every hye prest is ordeyned to offer gyftes and sacryfises wherfore it is of necessitie that this man have somewhat also to offer.
For he were not a preste yf he were on ye erth where are prestes that acordynge to ye lawe
offer giftes which prestes serve vnto ye ensample and shadowe of hevenly thynges: even as the answer of God was geven vnto Moses when he was about to fynnishe the tabernacle: Take hede (sayde he) that thou make all thynges accordynge to the patrone shewed to the in the mount.
Now hath he obtayned a more excellent office in as moche as he is the mediator of a better testament which was made for better promyses.
