Objection: "Jewish people don't need a middleman."

Judaism historically has required a priesthood, the Levites, to minister between the Israelites and their holy God. Leviticus 1:15 directed that only a priest (one of Aaron's sons) could sprinkle the blood of atonement in the Tent of Meeting for the forgiveness of sin.

Followers of Jesus now have direct access to God through the mediatorial role performed by Jesus. We now approach the LORD directly and go right into His holy presence. No Jew in Bible days, aside from the High Priest (and at that, only once a year), could ever do this.
