Listen: Hebrews 5, November 28, 2004
There is a mysterious character who shows up in Genesis 14 called Melchizedek, King of Salem, who blesses Abram, serves bread and wine, and is called a priest of the Most High God. His name means king of righteousness and his title means King of Peace. The priesthood was not established until hundreds of years later by Moses. In this chapter of Hebrews, Jesus is called our Great High Priest after the order of Melchizedek. Later in this same chapter we find out that Jesus had to learn obedience.
