People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 7:10


Heb 7:10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him. All Israel, kings and priests, though yet unborn, were represented in Abraham. Hence Levi paid tithes, and thus confessed the superiority of the priesthood of Melchizedek.

    If a new covenant with its new priesthood is in place,then giving should be freewill and not tithe-centric as is the common practice in the church then now.

    It is not for the wicked who walk after the flesh to understand. But now, it pleases my Holy Father for me to glory in the knowledge given me by the Spirit of Christ. For it is written, But let him that glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, says the LORD.

    Who can understand the mechanics of the Supreme Being. Noone! We don't even fully understand the mechanics of being alive in a body which has a end, but the Spirit which enlivens us doesn't. Melchidec appeared out of nowhere to Abraham as an emissary and is never heard from again. You say he was Jesus walking the earth on a recon mission. I say that Jesus was born of woman, Melchisidec wasn't

    Bet, because Melchizedek is a type of Christ comparing the Levitical law or mt. Sinai law which was given by God to Moses in contrast to the N.Testament law grace and truth by Christ Jo:1:17 Henry's commentary of this chapter indicate he was a priest and a king just like Jesus. He had no parents...mostly referring to no documentation of his human history. I don't see enough to say Christophany.

    These 2 immutable things are the 2 oaths made by God and Melchisedec blessing Abraham with multiplication/children. Immutable means something that cannot be changed which are the 2 oaths made by God and Melchisedec ,Resulting in natural Israel, Our strong consolation that Christ might be formed IN US WHICH IS the H.G WHOM JESUS REFERS TO AS THE PROMISE ,The Israel of GOD, MULTIPLICATION OF GOD .

    Hello Eutychus, WHERE IS MELCHIZADEK? Psalm 90:2 "from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God". Jesus is God,John 20:28, and therefore Melchizadek seems to be an Old Testament appearance of Jesus before He appeared in the New Testament as baby Jesus. Very, very deep.
