Three lines in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, is all there is in print of the original story of the high priest and King of Salem, Melchizedek. Paul, in Hebrews, however, reveals cultish teachings concerning  him.

What mystical things are we not seeing "in between the lines"?

Though this "King of Righteousness" (that's what "Melchizedek" translates to) and "King of Peace" (Salem means peace) is not Christian, is not Jewish, and is heathen,  Paul identifies him with the Christ. Since Paul, many scholars have identified him as being a messianic prefiguring - if not actually being - the Christ in a former incarnation.

Did Paul start the cult of Melchizedek, or did he join it?

Who is this mysterious eternal high priest under whom Jesus as Christed serves?

How does one become a priest in the Order of Melchizedek?

How would Paul know Jesus Christed was "designated by God a high priest after the Order of Melchizedek" (Heb. 5.10)?

What is different in the Melchizedek lineage versus the clergical succession of the churches?

Few people, even those who have appointed themselves as owners and dispensers of the mysteries, have any inkling what it means, because, as Paul notes, they have "become dull of hearing."

Tune in for revelations you will never hear elsewhere - because they are original with co-hosts of Think Rich Radio, Dr. Quantum (Ted Ciuba) and Chap Oscar!

Finally walk away with some answers about the Melchizedek mystique. (And a whole lot of new, higher-level questions.)
