About "The Priesthood of Christ"
John Owen is notable for taking themes that those who had gone before had often wrestled with and writing with clarity and depth on such a theme. He does the same here with the �Priesthood of Christ�. Having studied Hebrews in great depth and written a commentary on Hebrews, John Owen is able to give us a comprehensive guide. He explains how the Old Testament themes such as Law and Covenant can relate to Christ�s office of Priest.
