Hebrews 5:1-2 (NIV 1984)
1 Every high priest is selected from among men and is appointed to represent them in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2 He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness.
High priests represent the people. Defenders of people not judges. Jesus is our high priest. He was appointed to represent us before God. Not to tear us down. He is on our side.
