Heb. 5:1‑10• 1For every high priest taken from among men is constituted for men in things relating to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins;

4And no one taketh the honour to himself but called by God, just as Aaron also.
5So the Christ also glorified not himself to be made high priest; but he that spoke unto him, My Son art thou: I to-day have begotten thee;
6even as also in another [place] he saith, Thou [art] priest for ever according to the order of Melchizedek;
7who in the days of his flesh having offered up both supplications and entreaties to him that was able to save him out of death, with strong crying and tears, and having been heard because of his godly fear,
8though being Son, he learned obedience from the things which he suffered,

 Since the Jews, as such, were accustomed to be called "brethren" after the flesh, there was the more propriety in designating Christian Jews "holy brethren," however truly it applied to any Christian. (Hebrews 3:1-6 by W. Kelly)
 "partakers of a heavenly calling." Such indeed they were. They entered the new privilege not by a tie of birth, but by call of God (Hebrews 3:1-6 by W. Kelly)
 How out of place would have been the introduction of his own apostolate! The Son of God, the Christ, had deigned to be the Apostle of our confession (ch. 3:1). (Hebrews 1:1-2 by W. Kelly)
