“Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.”
King James Version (KJV)
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.
Heb 5:10 Called of God an high priest. When he had suffered he was called of God an high priest, or entered upon his priesthood. After the order of Melchisedec. See notes on Heb 5:6 7:1-10.
