And no one can become a high priest simply because he wants such an honor. He must be called by God for this work, just as Aaron was. That is why Christ did not honor himself by assuming he could become High Priest. No, he was chosen by God, who said to him,

Today I have become your Father.”

Today I have become your Father.”

Thou art my Son,

This day have I begotten thee:

Today I have become your Father.”
