Two Offices in One

Jesus the High Priest thus fulfils a double office: that of the once-for-all act of atonement, and that of the extension of this work continued into eternity. Actually it is not a double function, but only one, for everything rests on the one act of sacrifice.

—Oscar Cullmann, “Jesus the High Priest”, Christology of the NT,  101
