Priesthood and O.T / N.T


Can someone recommend a good book on the Catholic Priesthood in relation to the Old and New Covenants. I do not completely understand how the Catholic Priesthood fits into the scheme of things.

I keep getting Protestant questions on on the idea of how the Catholic priesthood is legitmate if the Temple curtain has been torn in two as the scriptures say.

  1. If Christ is High Priest, what role do Catholic Priests fill in relation to him.

Any Help understanding would be appreciated.


It’s all about the sacrifice. No priesthood, no sacrifice.
