The writer of Hebrews has mentioned Melchizedek several times. Now he begins a full-blown discussion of him and his relation to Christ. The fact that the writer devotes three chapters to the order of Melchizedek denotes how important it is that we understand the High Priestly Ministry of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Hebrews provides the primary scriptural basis for the study of Melchisedec, for this letter reveals the principles of the more excellent ministry.
There are a people who are passing over and many have passed over into a new order of ministry. They are moving beyond the outer court, through the Holy Place, and are passing over the threshold of the rent veil into the Holiest of all. Like Joseph, their branch will go over the wall (Gen. 49:22).
The more excellent ministry is simply the ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ from the Most Holy Place after the order (manner or similitude) of Melchisedec.
