Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 5:10


5:10 Called - The Greek word here properly signifies surnamed. His name is, the Son of God. The Holy Ghost seems to have concealed who Melchisedec was, on purpose that he might be the more eminent type of Christ. This only we know, - that he was a priest, and king of Salem, or Jerusalem.

Discussion for Hebrews 5

  • Steve
    Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffers,says Paul of Melchisidec, who was a High Priest, as was Jesus, chosen by God, as was Jesus to offer sacrifice for sin, his and others."Oh no! Jesus had no sin" To be born into flesh is sin, in that we automatically assume differentiation from God, but there is atonement, and mercy thru tears, praying for forgiveness,

    HEBREWS 5:13 FOR EVERYONE THAT USETH MILK IS UNSKILFUL IN THE WORD OF RIGTEOUSNESS FOR HE IS A BABE --5:14-- but strong meat belongeth to them that are full of age even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil
  • A disciple
    What did Jesus ever do to provoke the hypocrites? He exposed their hypocrisy! And why not even from out of yourselves, do you not judge what is right? If you're about to be hauled before the Judge, don't you want to do everything to cooperate and seek lenience? Or when He has frankly forgiven you everything, BECAUSE you had nothing to pay; do you look for some fellow servant to take by the throat?
  • A disciple
    Yes, Steve, Nowhere! When the Lord taught the crowds He used parables; (short stories that are told for to making moral and spiritual points); which every man hearing could in his integrity of heart and fear of God receive good and well as it was ever intended when God spoke it to him. Likewise when a man has no place for faith or fear of God, he cannot hear what's plainly spoken; but hardens.
