    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.   One of the most intriguing sections in the Book of Hebrews is its discussion of Melchizedek and his priesthood. Hebrews says that “ Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, .

    Melchizedek, Melchisedech, Melkisetek, or Malki Tzedek (/ m ɛ l ˈ k ɪ z ə d ɛ k /; Hebrew: מַלְכִּי־צֶדֶֿק malkī-ṣeḏeq, "king of righteousness"; Amharic: መልከ ጼዴቅ malkī-ṣeḏeq; Armenian: Մելքիսեդեք, Melkisetek), was the king of Salem and priest of El Elyon (often translated as "most high God") mentioned in the 14th chapter of the Book of : 22 May (Eastern Orthodox Church), 26 August . The answer is that His priesthood is of a higher order than that of Levi. In Hebrews –10 he argues that priests receive tithes, and Abraham gives Melchizedek a tithe, receiving bread and wine in return (possibly anticipating the Lord’s Supper). Because Levi comes from Abraham, Levi tithes to Melchizedek through Abraham.

    The early recipients of Hebrews, Alistair Begg explains, needed spiritual reassurance. Under the old covenant, people looked forward to a Great High Priest for their redemption. Those under the new covenant, meanwhile, were called to gaze back upon Jesus’ costly, once-and-for-all sacrifice. When we similarly anchor our hope in the person of Christ, we obtain the privilege of an eternal. A Hidden Force – King Melchizedek (Genesis ) The High Priest Melchizedek was operating behind the scenes. Genesis opens the door so that we can see how Abram won the battle, and King Melchizedek was a key force. This last point about King Melchizedek is puzzling due to its brief and surprise introduction here.

There’s one New Testament book that dedicates – not just 3 verse but – 3 entire chapters to Melchizedek. And in those 3 chapters of that one New Testament book, this Old Testament King and Priest becomes one of the most important men in all of Bible : Jeff Strite. Melchizedek was the king of Salem (probably Jerusalem [Ps.

]) and priest of the Most High God. Abraham had gone after four kings that had taken his nephew Lot and his family captive when they raided Sodom, where Lot was living.

Abraham defeated these kings, recovered all of the goods, and brought back Lot and his family. Free Access to Sermons on Melchizedek, Church Sermons, Illustrations on Melchizedek, and PowerPoints for Preaching on Melchizedek.

When Melchizedek met Abraham, he recognized the father of the faithful, the founder of the children and family of God in the earth. He recognized that the victory that Abraham had won had been given him of the Most High God, and he recognized the Most High God, called here "El Elyon, God the supreme, God the exalted, God Most High" [Genesis The Sermons cover chapters in Genesis with serious examination of Abraham, "the Friend of God" first, as to Abraham's courage in rescuing his nephew Lot, second, as to his godliness in paying tithes to Melchizedek, third, as to Abraham's faith in believing God, and 5/5(1).

Now, "This Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, to whom Abraham gave a tenth part of all that he had; first being by interpretation, king of righteousness, and after that, also king of Salem [Hebrews ].

He is doubly a king, this Melchizedek. "And melek tsedeq, melek shalom brought forth bread and wine" [Genesis The following is an excerpt from The MacArthur New Testament Commentary on Hebrews 7.

For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, who met Abraham as he was returning. Melchizedek was a king of righteousness worthy to pronounce God’s blessing on Abram at this point in the history of the Lord’s unfolding covenant of salvation with His people.

[Jean Calvin; Richard A Muller]. Melchizedek’s priesthood did not, and Abraham had to tithe to Melchizedek.

And by that argument the author of Hebrews shows that being in the priesthood of Melchizedek is superior to being in the Levitical priesthood and all of this is leading up to what comes in verse 11 of Hebrews 7.

And he [Melchizedek] blessed him [Abraham], and said, Blessed be Abram of the Most High God, possessor of heaven and earth: And blessed be the Most High God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.

And he [Abraham] gave him [Melchizedek] tithes of all.” Genesis This is the first mention in the Bible of the word “Priest”. Take your Bibles as we begin and turn to the 7th chapter of Hebrews for our study tonight.

Who was Melchizedek. A mysterious priest and king whom Abram recognised as a man of God, he is a picture for us of Jesus Christ, our Great High Priest.

Throughout history, every culture has had its 'priest' figure. Why does man seek someone to stand between him and God. Because we have a sense of our worthiness and the greatness of God. After a long delay, we are now ready to meet this mysterious man named Melchizedek.

As important as he is for understanding Christ and His ministry, it is somewhat surprising that Melchizedek is only mentioned in only three passages in the Bible: Hebrews (which we have been studying), Gene and Psalm (which as been quoted numerous times by the author of Hebrews).

Were it not for the book of Hebrews, Melchizedek would be little more than an interesting footnote in commentaries on the book of Genesis, a bewildering moment in the life of Abraham when this shadowy figure emerges briefly to bless Abraham, only to return to the realm of obscurity.

In Hebrews Melchizedek becomes much more than this. First Melchizedek brought forth bread and wine. Next Melchizedek blessed Abram. Then Abraham gave his tithe to Melchizedek.
