The office of Christ as Priest. Jesus extends as mediator between God and mankind .Christ is represented as drawing near to God and pleading in behalf of men, (Rom. 8:27; Heb. 7:25), in harmony with the idea of intercession, He is called our Advocate, (1 Jn. 2:1). The prayers and praises of believers are acceptable to God through Christ's intercession (see, Heb. 4:14-16; 13:15; 1 Pet. 2:5; Rev. 8:3).

1.INTERCESSION (in-ter-sesh'-un) (pagha`, "to make intercession"; originally "to strike upon," or "against"; then in a good sense, "to assail anyone with petitions," "to urge," and when on behalf of another, "to intercede", (Ruth 1:16; Jer. 7:16; 27:18; Job 21:15; Gen. 23:8; Isa. 53:12; Jer. 36:25). A similar idea is found in enteuxis, used as "petition," and in the New Testament "intercession."

2.The English word is derived from Latin intercedo, "to come between," which strangely has the somewhat opposed meanings of "obstruct" and "to interpose on behalf of" a person, and finally "to intercede."

3.A great truth is to be recognized, however, in that it is the privilege and duty of all Christians to pray effectively for others.
