The Sacrifice (Oblation) and Intercession Of Jesus

"These two, then, oblation and intercession, must in respect of their objects be of equal extent, and can by no means be separated. And here, by the way, (the thing being by this argument, in my apprehension, made so clear), I cannot but demand of those who oppose us about the death of Christ, whether they will sustain that he intercedeth for all or no;- if not, then they make him but half a priest; if they will, they must be necessitated either to defend this error, that all shall be saved, or own this blasphemy, that Christ is not heard of his Father, nor can he prevail in his intercession...."
