Hebrews 7

2 Outlines

 

Hebrews 7:1-10

Melchizedek

 

You may read his story in Genesis 14:18-20

 

HIS POSITION – Vs. 1a - For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God…

HIS PARTICIPATION – Vs. 1b - …who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

HIS PLACE – Vs. 2 - To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; - It was his place to receive tithes because of whom he was, “King of righteousness and King of peace”.

HIS PERPETUITY – Vs. 3 - Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually. – Melchizedek was a picture of Christ. Therefore there is no record of his birth or death. He is the picture of the One who abides forever.

HIS PROMINENCE – Vss. 4-10 - Now consider how great this man was, unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils. And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham: But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises. And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better. And here men that die receive tithes; but there he receiveth them, of whom it is witnessed that he liveth. And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham. For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.  – The Levites, who received tithes under the Old Testament Law, paid tithes through Abraham, because they were his descendents. “…the less is blessed by the better.”
