Jesus hasn't just gone into the Temple, but into heaven, as his Father's Son and our representative human. Because he is human he can sympathise with us.
• Selection
Jesus was appointed High Priest, he didn't choose to do it.

Because he became one with us we have solidarity with him in his perfect humanity. Only Jesus can be our mediator.
