VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. CHRIST, the Messiah appeared as High Priest of better things that have come and are to come

"But [that appointed time came] when Christ (the Messiah) appeared as a High Priest of the better things that have come and are to come."

CHRIST, the Messiah appeared as High Priest, because He's always there, He already existed before the foundation of the world, because He is GOD. CHRIST is the High Priest of the New covenant.

2:17 So it is evident that it was essential that He be made like His brethren in every respect, in order that He might become a merciful (sympathetic) and faithful High Priest in the things related to God, to make atonement and propitiation for the people’s sins.

Hebrews 3:1 (Amplified Bible)

3:1 SO THEN, brethren, consecrated and set apart for God, who share in the heavenly calling, [thoughtfully and attentively] consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest Whom we confessed [as ours when we embraced the Christian faith].

Hebrews 4:15 (Amplified Bible)

4:15 For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to understand and sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities and liability to the assaults of temptation, but One Who has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning.

B. CHRIST, the Messiah went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with human hands, not part of this material creation
