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.
"Probably no theologian in English language has ever rivaled Owen stressing the absolute centrality of Christ's penal substitution and therefore his as Priest...For that reason aloneThe Priesthood of Christis worth all the time it takes to read it with humility, care, and reflection" - Sinclair B. Ferguson,Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary Jackson, Mississippi
