We know from Psalms and Hebrews that Jesus is a priest in the order of Melchizedek. But who is Melchizedek? We only hear about him briefly as the king of Salem whom Abram honors and tithes to after a great victory. But there is much we can learn from this story and from who the Jewish people understood this man to be. "And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.) And he blessed him and said,
“Blessed be Abram by God Most High,
Possessor of heaven and earth;
and blessed be God Most High,
who has delivered your enemies into your hand!”
And Abram gave him a tenth of everything." Genesis 14:18-20
