---richard on 12/8/09 A great deal of scripture deals with God's chosen people Israel...Now the understanding of "Melchezedek" if you like, (as also the understanding of "Shiloh") is to the Jews, rather than to the church. We understand better when we can see God's purpose through Jewish eyes...though they yet cannot see until the end of this church age,because of the blindness that Paul explains as a "mystery" (Rom.11v25). A mystery that we as Christians are able to search out by the guidance of the Holy Spirit if we care to study prayerfully.

Makes perfect sense

---MIchael on 4/8/10 I believe the verse you quote offers proof that Jesus was
Melchizedek. The reasoning being that Jesus our high priest is not second to anyone therefore he could only be after the ardor of himself.

Psalms 110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek
---mima on 4/8/10


\\Yes!
Melchizedek is Christ.//

||Melchizedek = Melchizedek
Jesus = Jesus||

No, no, no.
---Cluny on 4/8/10


No, Jesus was after the order of Melchizedek, not melechizeek Himself.
Psalms 110:4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
Now the Captain of the Hosts on the other hand...
Joshua 5:14-15 And he said, Nay, but [as] captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? And the captain of the LORD'S host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot, for the place whereon thou standest [is] holy. And Joshua did so.
---MIchael on 4/8/10


Yes!
Melchizedek is Christ. Christ appeared in both the OT and the NT.
Jesus finally comfirmed and reveal this Mystery it to the scibes who were the Legal historians of scripture for the Jews.

In John 8:58 "BEFORE ABRAHAM WAS, IAM". This is probably the least understood and the most important part of the NT.

Few Christian are aware of the signficance of this verse. A Jew would have have been shocked and in Awe to hear it. Those whom he spoke to would have certainly known what it really meant.

---John on 4/8/10




Melchizedek = Melchizedek
Jesus = Jesus

The Scripture says to watch and pray and not to incessantly look back and argue. Does the argument help in anyway?

The Mystery still remains a Mystery.

It is possible Melchizedek is Chirst as well as he is not Christ. I believe the latter at this point. Why would not the writer of Hebrews or Paul or John just say: Melchizedek was Yeshua. It would have solved the who mystery if indeed it were a true premise. None of the writers of the new testiment came forth with this premise. Paul, as a well studied scholar of Hebrew and the law would have identified Melchizedek right off if indeed he was Christ. Rod.

Gen.32vs24:"Then Jacob was left alone,and a Man wrestled with him untill the breaking of day"...it's all through the book,God is bigger!you can't put God in a box! ..if you must believe that the "titular" name of Melchizedek refers to Noah's Uncle's Mother's Son then so be it(Struggling with the Sovereignty of God is common place these days anyway as a by product of too much arminian teaching without balance).

Rongda, I translate the Holy Scriptures from it's original tongues. The early English translators supposed the prefix "a-" to the word father and mother and genealogy in this passage meant "without", but in this case it is more accurately translated "with", like the prefix in our english word, "anoint" from the Greek "aleipho" as in Matthew 6:17, which means "with" oil, and not "without" oil. For it is known that both the man Melchisedec, and also the man Christ Jesus, were human and therefore both men have genealogies from Adam. I along with many Jews believe that Melchisedec is the same as Shem, the great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather of Abraham.
---Eloy on 11/24/09


One of the very common deceptions Satan uses to destroy people, is to get their eyes off of Jesus, he tries to get people to replace Jesus Christ with some other figure in the Bible. But we real born-again Christians know that their is only one Jesus Christ and it is not Melchisedec nor Mary nor any other figure in history, but it is that holy seed straight from the Holy Ghost in heaven and conceived in the womb of Mary and born in Bethlehem of Judea on the night of December 25, 5 B.C.

The church age is the reason for what Paul calls the "mystery of Israel's blindness" its also woven into Daniel (see Matthew 24vs 15) and many other places.Psalm 110 says the Lord will "break kings in pieces in the day of His wrath" with His "rod of strength" but Jesus added little to clarify these scriptures...it should be well noted that he said nothing!!! about the only one who was after the order ("or type") of Himself,dont feel this was to hide from the church matters about tithing as he spoke 2 parables to "pharisee's"and pulled no punch's about their attitude to what was a "statute and law" for Israel.

"Christ is no longer physical ...He was CHANGED to spirit becoming the first fruits of MANY".

Does this statement by Rhonda agree with this following verses from the Bible?

Luke 24:37-38-39-40,
"37-But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.

38-And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?

39-Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

40-And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

Following your line of reasoning, Jesus HAD a "beginning of days"
******

of course PHYSICAL Christ had beginning of days ...how could you twist it to imply otherwise???

Christ conceived of the Holy Spirit into flesh and blood (physical) without his life ended there would be no salvation

Christ as the WORD has always existed John 1:1,14

otherwise believing the immortal WORD who became physical Christ did not always exist then you would have no salvation in name of physical mortal Christ

Christ is no longer physical ...He was CHANGED to spirit becoming the first fruits of MANY

you do understand flesh and blood do not inherit the Kingdom of God

No chance this merely means that there is simply no record of his geneology, as there is with Jesus and other people of the Bible?

mima, many like Melchisedec were representatives of Jesus: Abraham, Yitzhak, and Jacob: Henoch, Noah, and Lot: Yoseph, Moses, and Yehoshua: Samson, David, and Solomon: Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: Eliyah and Elisha: Phillip and Paul, these were "like" Jesus, but none of them "were" Jesus. Melchisedec died and other priests followed after him, and they continually offered sacrifices for their sins (Heb.7:23,27,28), but Jesus is sinless. lit.Gk: Melchizedek, "with father, with mother, with genealogy, and not the first day, and not life end to have, but TO MAKE LIKE TO THE SON WHO'S GOD, since truly of a priest onto unceasing...AFTER THE LIKENESS OF MELCHISEDEC there arises another priest.

The "similtude" spoken of here---is made "not after the law of a carnal commandment but after the power of an endless life" Heb.7vs 15 and 16... It is good for believers to search the scriptures and I do realise that this question is rarely tackled..its an eschatolgical problem but very relevant to a modern church with pre-concieved mis-conceptions.
---richard on 11/20/09


My thinking on the subject:we know Abraham offered Isaac in faith and God in the fullness of time sent Jesus to be the true sacrificial Lamb.What if Abraham gave his "tithe" in faith too,to open a door of blessing (for God to repay)at a future time and could all this be relevant to Israel once the church has been raptured.

Yes Christ was Melchizedek

Christ is Spirit and in the likeness of Melchizedek who was a physical and SEEN by the Patriarchs

Today Christ is NOT SEEN but still serves as High Priest AFTER Melchizedek

understanding Melchizedek had no beginning of days

If Melchizedek were ANOTHER divine being then Gods Word LIED when we were told IN THE BEGINNING was God and the Word

otherwise Melchizedek with NO BEGINNING of Days would ALSO be mentioned in John 1,2,14

The correct answer is NO.

Heb7:15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

The key word is similitude:
1. condition of being similar: likeness or resemblance ( formal )


2. somebody or something resembling another: somebody or something that is like somebody or something else


3. shared characteristic: a quality or feature shared by two or more people or things ( formal )


4. form or semblance: a form or semblance of somebody or something ( formal or literary )

He resembled Christ. He was a type and shadow. King David in many ways resembled Christ. Joseph, the son of Jacob is another.

Who was the fourth man in the fiery furnace that the form of the fourth is like the Son of God? (Daniel 3:25)

Besides, why squabble over something that cannot be proven by man and only in three verses. The posts on this blog are merely speculation about who Melchizedek was/is. This debate has no bearing upon the two commandments spoken of by Jesus to do. There is not a third commandment that says to debate everything that cannot be won. Instead of debating, christians should be out feeding the poor, giving drink to the thirsty, and populating the Kingdom of God - none of which is being done debating. A terrible waste of energy and time.

GOOD POST!

Yes, he was! It was not Christology (a fore-image of Christ) it was an actual appearance of Christ.
Christ appeared in the Old Testament as well as the new. It was priesthood reserved for the Christ. Unblemished since the Priesthood of Aaron was blemished and replaced by the Hasmodean the sons of Cain/Esau. It was Cain and Esau that condemn our Messiah

Read Hebrews/PS110 on this. Also Jesus confirms it in his passage Before Abraham I Am. One of the greatest and most mystery passages in the NT.

This is a great sermon and teaching, but I have only 125 words. So read the Book.
---PASTOR_JIM on 11/8/09


I believe that Melchezedek was the 1st son of Noah and that he was ordained to the priesthood by Enoch's son Methuzaleh. This would make sense in a patriarchal society. Enoch was the 7th prophet from Adam and was the last to be ordained by him. Enoch walked with God and ascended into Heaven. His son Methuzaleh, as the oldest man in the Bible, lived until right before the great flood. As the oldest elder in a patriarchal society it would have been he who ordained Shem. Shem lived a considerably long life as well and would have been the oldest living elder at the time of Abraham.

There are two types of priests. Those who do the Temple duties (Levitical) and those who are priests to those around them. The latter I believe is the Melchizedekian line. You are familiar with this:

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Amazingly, this was not a NEW thing. All of Israel was asked to be the same at Sinai:

Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.

We pay too much attention to what these persons were and miss the mark. The birth of Christ as written in Isaiah was a sign given by God but we are the main event. Now consider this - Melchizedek was without father & mother, Jesus had a mother but no earthly father. The one to come (He who overcomes as written in Revelation 2 & 3) would he have earthly father and mother? It is only when this is fulfilled that the dominion which Adam lost shall have been recovered to man as written in Genesis 49:10. As Jesus asked - when the Son of cometh shall he find faith on the earth? THINK ON THIS and remember 'All things are possible to him that believes.

There are many OT or Tanach figures who are types of Messiah. (He being the shadow or anti-type) Joseph who was born of a woman who was barren, who suffered and ultimately was able to bring life to his family. Another is Melchesidek, who was a High Priest, a King, a receiver of tithes... he was another type of Messiah. This is why Mel is used in Hebrews to show the ministry of the priesthood our Messiah now operates on our behalf from.

Peace.

Hebrews 7 clearly state he was a MAN....

Therefore it was not Jesus Christ, as Jesus became a man only once...through the birth of the Virgin Mary.

These verses are using this as a TYPE. OT is steeped with Typology!





Also Zechariah 6 will say more. Jesus as Priest and KING will be fully realized at the millennial Kingdom Reign. Psalms 110 also is referring to the millennial Kingdom reign! Again, something that can be found in Genesis 3:15, when Genesis 3:15 is also fully realized.

KING of PEACE/Righteousness....these are promised at the 1000 year reign of Christ!

Jesus became a high priest, not because he was a descendant of Aaron, but because he was a descendant of David and a legitimate successor of the legacy left by David when he became king of Jerusalem. Kings came only from the tribe of Judah.

The author of Hebrews is emphasizing that Jesus become a priest, not according to a legal requirement concerning bodily descent (Hebrews 7:16-17), but because of the promise made to David that he and his descendants would become priests forever after the order of Melchizedek ***(Psalm 110:4).

To say that Melchizedek was in fact Jesus in some form does not understand the text.

Salem was in fact ancient Jerusalem. You need to studying OT to grasp what the author of Hebrews is saying.

"You cannot prove he was Jesus and you cannot disprove it so, you are wasting your words." (Exzucuh)

You are right. We can not prove or disprove that Melchizedek was a Theophany, a pre-incarnate appearance of the Son of God. However, many believe so, and thus I leave it as a possible occurrence. I simply do not say "No" as if Holy Scriptures teach that Melchizedek is not a Theophany. If He was not a pre-incarnate appearance of the Son of God, then at the very least he is a type of Christ. Saint Paul make this clear in Hebrews.

It is very foolish to teach people about something you know nothing about, the Bible says Melchizedek was not born and did not die

Some propose that Melchizedek was actually a pre-incarnate appearance of Jesus Christ. Melchizedek was the king of Salem. Would Jesus Christ have come to earth and ruled as an earthly king over a city? Melchizedek is similar to Christ in that they are both priests and kings, therefore, Melchizedek could be called a type of Christ, but they are not the same person.

The office of Priesthood under the Levitical Priesthood came only from the tribe of Levi.

---Ignatius I agree with your assessment. And as to whether not Abraham worshiped
Melchizedek this much is known the lesser always pays tithes to the greater!
---mima on 8/13/09


Melchizedek may not be a Theophany, however, in the Old Testament, God "appeared" before man on several occasions. Theophany is a manifestation of God in the Bible that is tangible to the human senses. In its most restrictive sense, it is a visible appearance of God in the Old Testament period, often, but not always, in human form. Read Genesis 12:7-9, Genesis 18:1-33, Genesis 32:22-30, and others.

Thus, Melchizedek could very well be a Theophany, a pre-incarnate Christ.

"Abraham does not worship him."

If it was a Theophany, Abraham would not know it was a Theophany, as Jacob [Israel] did not know he was wresting with God until the end (Genesis 32:22-30).

"If Melchizedek was Christ we would have to deal with two incarnations"

No, he wouldn't. If the mysterious figure Melchizedek was a theophany, a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ, He will only "appear" human (flesh). Pre-incarnate would be before He took on flesh (ie. Mary become his mother). "The Angel of the Lord" is often refer to as a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ. Actually, it is clear that in at least some instances, the angel of the Lord is a theophany, an appearance of God in physical form.

The Divine Word could certainty appear before man and interact with them, without any incarnation ("Christ"). Heb.7:4 doesn't say that.

In Heb.7:4 One of the requirements for being a priest is that one had to be of human ancestry. This is one of the strongest arguments against he being a pre-incarnate Christ.

Christ became the high priest after he sacrificed his life and went to heaven

Abraham does not worship him.

He was announced as King in his 1st coming but was rejected Mt.12:22-45. At his 2nd coming he will be realized as King and function as one Isa.9:6 Mt.25:34-45.

If Melchizedek was Christ we would have to deal with two incarnations, since all priests were taken from among men. If he was Jesus who became man then his birth through Mary would be a second incarnation.

We know that didn't happen.
---kathr4453 on 8/12/09


The major theme of Hebrews is the contrast between the earthly, Levitical prisethood, and the eternal priesthood of Melchizedek, which is fulfilled in Christ (Hebrews 5-7).

The mysterious figure Melchizedek is perhaps a theophany, a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ, at the very least he is a type of Christ, as Saint Paul explain in Hebrews in detail.

He is given no genealogy, and nothing is said of his death. He receives tithes from Abraham, implying he is superior to Abraham in rank, and by extension, superior to Abraham's descendants. He is not only a Priest, but a King as well. In this dual office, he is able to reconcile the justice of God with His Mercy. His name means "King of Righteousness".

"Was Melchizedek the pre-incarnate Son of God?" No.

Melchizedek was "made like unto the Son of God," foreshadowing Jesus, 'The Son of God'. Who abides as both a KIng and Priest continually, as a more excellent, or suitable, representative of the position, rank and purpose designated and determined of the Father. Therefore I agree with Tonne, he was, 'I believe', a theophany of the Father Himself. Please understand, this is simply my view, to be received or dismissed as such, as scripture is unclear concerning the matter.
What is clear is that the chronicles records all human males, starting with Adam, of any significance concerning Jesus sojourn on earth. It is interesting to note that Melchizedek is not listed.

Milchisedek is only mentioned 3 times in the Bible. Genesis when Abram defeated the Kings. Psalms 110 and Hebrews. He walks on and off the pages. I believe He is God ETERNAL. The only one that has no mother or father is GOD, God has no geneology. Melchisdek functioned only as God lived through Him.

Milchisidek was without mother without father or geneology. He was a person in physical appearance, but it is clear he was not born of mankind. Some have speculated he may have been an angel or even Jesus Christ, but neither are true. No beginning of day or end of life. Angels were created so therefore they had a beginning. Jesus Christ died (physically) so He had an end of life. He was God ETERNAL. How? Manifestation thru a human body. God would bring about great things thru Melchisidek who Jesus Christ would become.

Melchizedek was a real, historical King-priest who served as a type for the greater King-Priest who was to come, Jesus Christ.....Attempts have been made to identify Melchizedek as an imaginary character named Shem, an angel, the Holy Spirit, Christ, and others. All are products of speculation, not historical facts, and it is impossible to reconcile them with the theological argument of Hebrews....Psalms 110:4 The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind.

Melchizedek was a man who functioned as a high priest before God established a priesthood by covenant law starting with Aaron. by the record Aaron had faults. and many others who followed after him did.

Melchizedek didnt have any of that. not having come from a line of priests, not having any record of faults, not having record of family genealogy. but that doesnt make him the pre-incarnate Son of God, because Jesus was foretold of and has a genealogical record.

however Jesus is commissioned as a High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. which means that apart from the law Jesus followed after him, to function in an eternal Priesthood. and we are made priests through Him.

**Hebrews 7:3
3-Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God, abideth a priest continually."

Scripture does not say there is no record of
Melchizedek brith!! It says without Father, without Mother, without descent. Look again at these words and you can clearly see that Melchizedek did not come to be in the natural human manner nor did he have beginning or ending hum um. Very interesting.**

Like I said, you did not get the answer you wanted.

Melchizedek was a human being. Period. Deal.

If he had no "beginning of days", it would be kind of hard for him to be born on some day, plus if he had no *mother* . . . (o: I do not know of anyone ever who has been born but who has no mother (o: And he has no "end of life", so I consider he is possibly still on this earth. I may have met him, for all I know. If you were a person with priestly power to do God's good to people and you knew you could not die, for as long as this earth is, where would you go, and what would you do? Well, actually, we are in the priesthood of Jesus which is like unto the priesthood of Melchizedec. So, we can live and love as ones in an unending priesthood. We may die, but our effect of God's love will be without end (o:

Early in this blog let us look closely at Scripture.

Hebrews 7:3
3-Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but made like unto the Son of God, abideth a priest continually."

Scripture does not say there is no record of
Melchizedek brith!! It says without Father, without Mother, without descent. Look again at these words and you can clearly see that Melchizedek did not come to be in the natural human manner nor did he have beginning or ending hum um. Very interesting.

Seeing that Melchizedek was a human being, I doubt very much that he could have been Jesus. Jesus was born thousands of years later. it was at his birth in Bethlehem that he became human. Melchizedek's name interpreted is "king of righteousness" but it doesn't say he was the king of righteousness, he was a man, a priest, a king, and by interpretaiton only, a king of righteousness. This entire happening can merely be a picture of Christ, but it is not Christ.

Melchizedek was a great high priest in the old testament that was given the higher priesthood and it would be the same priesthood given to Jesus Christ himself to ordain his twelve apostles. The Old Testament speaks of two distinct and separate priesthoods. The Aaronic, named after Aaron and Melchizedek. The Aaronic priesthood had to authority to perform certain duties, but the Melchizedek was then given with all the blessings and authority to act in God's name. Men were given both separately through the laying on of hands by those holding that authority. No one could take the honour unto themselves. The Aaronic priesthood, or prepatory priesthood was given first, followed by the latter.

Yes,that does refer to Jesus Christ.Melchizedek,the word itself means King(Melek in Hebrew)of the righteous (zadok in Hebrew).Christ is the only King of the Righteous(who are the Elect)and King of Salem(peace) as is stated in Gen 14:18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he [was] the priest of the most high God.

Heb. 6:20 says that Jesus was made a high priest after the order of Melchizedeck, it doesn't say the he was Melchizedek.
Heb.7:4 says he was a man.
I think Heb. 7 is telling us there is no record of his birth or death or geneology. Obviously, if he was a man and a high priest then he did have a begining and an end, they just don't know when.
