"'My son,' the father said, 'you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.
But what does Scripture say? "Get rid of the slave woman and her son, for the slave woman's son will never share in the inheritance with the free woman's son."
but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood.
