You are a priest forever--in the "honored" order of Melchizedek.
Melchizedek is perhaps the most mysterious figure in Scripture.
He appears for the first time in Genesis 14:17-20. But who is
Melchizedek? Who is this enigmatic figure stepping out of the
shadows only to return again? Is he a man or an angel or something
This retelling of the Book of Hebrews is designed to help
readers understand how Jesus completes the law and prophets. David
Capes has written a compelling comparison of the unusual character
from Genesis, Melchizedek, and the Liberator found in the New
Testament, Jesus. His story is followed by the complete text of
Hebrews retold by Greg Garrett.
