Hebrews 7

Melchizedek’s Priesthood Like Christ’s

For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham as he was returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, to whom also Abraham apportioned a tenth part of all the spoils, was first of all, by the translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then also king of Salem, which is king of peace. Without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, he remains a priest perpetually. …

            Melchizedek was as my College professors would say, a “type of Christ” That is to sat that he is one of the people recorded in the Bible who exemplified the kind of compassionate understanding and strength of our Lord Jesus. That this man was a priest of El Elyon means that he was the righteous priest and king and king of Salem, which means king of peace. Salem which is justifiably taken to mean Peace as derived from the Hebrew. The location of this ministry was also significant, as this was expressed clearly Jeru simply means city, combined with Salem (or Shalom) becomes Jerusalem, the holy city. Why is any of this important? Simply this. All along the Way of the Biblical journey there are these signposts pointing to the fulfillment of the promise of Jesus. As an informed and passionate reader I find there is no room for doubt concerning the veracity of scripture. Why listen to fools who choose to attempt at every turn to debunk the truth of Jesus based upon the poor performance of His followers down through the centuries. Pray and strive to be a better “type of Christ” every day.
