Who was Melchizedek?
Embark on an intriguing and interesting journey into the life of a strange and isolated, but unique personage called Melchizedek. He appears momentarily in the Bible on an occasion where he met the great Patriarch Abraham and then disappears from the pages of history just as suddenly as he appeared.
He is said to be without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life according to the book of Hebrews. So the big questions that this book explores and attempt to answer about this strange figure are:
In what way does his priestly order align with the Lord Jesus; yet differ from the Aaronic (Levitical) order of priesthood? Why should Melchizedek, and he alone of all the Old Testament characters, be thought of in a way that defiles human mortality?
This book’s approach to the life of Melchizedek will leave you amused, instructed, enlightened, stirred up, and challenged but definitely not bored!
