HEBREWS 7: 1-28
Melchisedec was an earthly king-priest ( Gen. 14: 18-20 )
vs. 1. For this Melchisedec king of salem, priest of the most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him:
vs. 2. To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of Righteuosness, and after that also King of salem, which is, King of Peace.
[ Melchisedec's origin was not recorded (v. 6 ) so he could be a mere type of Christ's eternity ( Mic. 5:1-2; Jn. 1:1-2 )
vs.3. Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
vs. 4. Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriach Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
[ Melcjisedec was better than Abraham and Levi Gen. 14 : 18-20 ]
vs. 5. And verily they that are sons of Levi, who receive the office office of the priesthood, have commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham.
