We Have a Great High Priest

Hebrews 4:14
Hebrews 4:14 NASB95
14 Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
Therefore - Hebrews 4:11-13
Hebrews 4:11–13 NASB95
11 Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest, so that no one will fall, through following the same example of disobedience. 12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

Jesus understands us
Because He became one of us He can understand us.
our frality
our struggles
our temptations
He was tempted in all things
this does not mean that Jesus had every temptation we do.
Jesus would not have been tempted to drink and dirve a “car”
Jesus would not have been tempted to watch pornagraphy on a computer.
Just as we are not be tempted to turn stones into bread
Satan only tempts us in areas we can do or are possible for us.
He was tempted in all area of life.

And I have not been summoned to come to the king for these thirty days.”
