John, these texts do not in any way suggest that Jesus served as High Priest.
They speak explicitly of a High Priesthood that is of an entirely different
order from that of the Jewish priesthood, and that began with the passion and
resurrection of Jesus. This is the clear implication of 5:1-10, taken in
context, and the author explicitly denies, in 8:4, that Jesus would be priest
"if he were on earth". This perspective coheres perfectly, in its negative
side, with the universal witness of the gospels.
