Connection to Jesus' Priesthood
Like Jesus, Mandela spread the message he believed in around the world. He believed in something and wanted to share this message of equality and share the rights that everyone deserved. Priests do this as well. Priests spread God's word and preach their beliefs to everyone. During Jesus' ministry he went to spread his beliefs and share them with people and he gained a following of people who had the same views as him and wanted to spread the same beliefs.
Mark 3:14 “14 He appointed twelve that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach."
Hebrews 7:26 “Such a high priest truly meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens.”
