Discussion for Hebrews 7

    Bet; "Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God.." Melchizedek naturally DID have a father and mother; but with regard to the recorded genealogies of the Nations, he appears as though not from any of them. In this was he made a type of Jesus the Son of God the Anointed. I hope that answers your question.

    How can Paul equate Melchisedec to Jesus, who is God on earth among us????

    It is very interesting what chapter 7 of Hebrews is revealing to us. This chapter is confirming that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, became flesh and dwelt among us, who also established the order of Melchisedec priesthood. Jesus was the second of the priesthood of Melchisedec, both God in the flesh. The Holy Spirit also dwells in the hearts of the believers.
  • A disciple
    Dear Frank; What the Apostle is explaining to us is about the eternal existence of the Lord Jesus; in how Melchizedek (of whom there is no record in Scripture about his lineage) was taken as a type of Christ. The term, "..men that die receive tithes," simply refers to the mortality, and therefore the weakness of the Aaronic priesthood because the priests did not live for ever.
  • Frank Hogan nz
    " and here men that die receive tithes " verse 8 Can someone explain this to me, paying tithes to someone who is dead !!!
