Hebrews 9:24 (KJV)
For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
Not long ago I had a conversation with a Jewish man. (I am not sure he would call it a conversation as he, in the most uncivil terms, accused me of being an uncivil anti-Semitic.) He insisted that Jesus never abandoned the Jewish covenant and that neither did His disciples. He was sure that every time the New Testament speaks of the church, God meant to say synagogue.
This passage is very clear; Jesus has assumed the position of High Priest, but not in the Old Testament sense, He is High Priest in heaven. He has entered into a new and more excellent covenant.
