Wesley's Notes for Hebrews 7:26


7:26 For such an high priest suited us - Unholy, mischievous, defiled sinners: a blessed paradox! Holy - With respect to God. Harmless - With respect to men. Undefiled - With any sin in himself. Separated from sinners - As well as free from sin. And so he was when he left the world. And made - Even in his human nature. Higher than the heavens - And all their inhabitants.

    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

    *** HEBREWS 7:22 BY SO MUCH WAS JESUS MADE A SURETY OF A BETTER TESTAMENT ***

    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.
