Pentecost 21b - Hebrews 5:1-10

Hebrews 5:1-10
I’m not a high priest but I suppose according to the writer of Hebrews I qualify as one chosen to be “put in charge of things pertaining to God” so as to “deal gently with the ignorant and the wayward.” Not that the people of God at Calvary are ignorant or wayward. So in not exactly the same way as my being called to the ministry of word and sacrament, Jesus is called to bear the burdens of the ignorant and the wayward and the otherwise by living our life and dying our death and rising beyond anything we can imagine.
