He has a More Excellent Name than Moses, who led Israel out of Egypt and gave the Israelites the Law (Hebrews 3:3). Jesus fulfilled the Law and died to take it out of the way (Colossians 2:13-15). Jesus has a More Excellent Name than the high priest, who interceded for Israel (Hebrews 4:14-16). Jesus gives us grace, for which the high priest prayed.
