Continuing our comparison of the Old and the New Covenant Priesthoods, we see the privileges each had regarding their respective altars. Jesus fulfilled the sacrifices of atonement that the priests of the Old Covenant had no right to eat from, whereas the New Covenant priesthood (having greater and more precious privileges than the Old) has the right to eat from the Altar who is Christ himself. We are encouraged to strengthen our hearts on the grace that may only come from this Altar, to turn away from this world or from any other place we may go in an attempt to strengthen our hearts, and not to cut ourselves off from Christ, which those who reject his Altar most assuredly do.
