“Our Great High Priest”
Hebrews 2:17 Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. WLC - http://www.paullytle.com/WLC/044.html

WLC Q. 44. How doth Christ execute the office of a priest? 
A. Christ executes the office of a priest, in his once offering himself a sacrifice without spot to God, to be a reconciliation for the sins of the people; and in making continual intercession for them.

Jesus Christ is the only Priest we need because His sacrifice was once for all and He intercedes forever
