Remember Melchizedek, The Guy From The Bible That Didn’t Have A Mother Or Father, Nor A Beginning, And Lives Forever, Also Known As the, “King Of Peace”


This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High. He met Abraham returning from the defeat of the kings and blessed him, and Abraham gave him a tenth of everything. First, the name Melchizedek means “king of righteousness”; then also, “king of Salem” means “king of peace.” Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.

Just think how great he was: Even the patriarch Abraham gave him a tenth of the plunder! Now the law requires the descendants of Levi who become priests to collect a tenth from the people—that is, from their fellow Israelites—even though they also are descended from Abraham. This man, however, did not trace his descent from Levi, yet he collected a tenth from Abraham and blessed him who had the promises. And without doubt the lesser is blessed by the greater. In the one case, the tenth is collected by people who die; but in the other case, by him who is declared to be living. One might even say that Levi, who collects the tenth, paid the tenth through Abraham, 10 because when Melchizedek met Abraham, Levi was still in the body of his ancestor.

Jesus Like Melchizedek

11 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that priesthood—why was there still need for another priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? 12 For when the priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also. 13 He of whom these things are said belonged to a different tribe, and no one from that tribe has ever served at the altar. 14 For it is clear that our Lord descended from Judah, and in regard to that tribe Moses said nothing about priests. 15 And what we have said is even more clear if another priest like Melchizedek appears, 16 one who has become a priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. 17 For it is declared:

“You are a priest forever,
    in the order of Melchizedek.”[a]

18 The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless 19 (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God.

20 And it was not without an oath! Others became priests without any oath, 21 but he became a priest with an oath when God said to him:

“The Lord has sworn
    and will not change his mind:
    ‘You are a priest forever.’”[b]

  2. The Mormons really like this Melchizedek fellow and named their high priesthood after him. Once ordained to that higher priesthood you can officiate it the temple and be a high priest unto the most high god, to rule and reign over the house of Israel forever. Are you thinking of being mormon?

    • You Asked — “Are you thinking of being mormon?”

      My Answer — Nope. My curiosity is focused on this guy, I find him to be very interesting.

      He seems to be in several religions but for some reason I have never heard of him. Not to mention he seems to defy normal context.

      Anomalies are especially interesting to me. Even more so when people avoid talking about them… and despite a plethora of opportunities from many religious people and organizations… none of them mentioned him to me.

  3. Hi Lander, This priest of the Most High God, Mel ( for short ) comes on the scene after God had given Abraham a great victory, then Abraham give this Priest a tenth of the spoils, thinking of this I compare this with the scene when the pre-incarnate Jesus meets him before the Angels destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham, so walked with the LORD, he knew when God was in his presence, I pray for us men would be so filled with Gods Spirit, we know when God is near, God Bless, Duet. 29:29
