Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High.
-In Hebrew, priest is written as kohen & it means vicar, minister, chaplain
-Heb 5:5-6, So also Christ did not glorify Himself to become High Priest, but it was He who said to Him: “You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.” As He also says in another place: “You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek”;
-King of Salem means king of peace. Abraham gave king Melchizedek a 10th of everything meaning king of righteousness (Heb 7:1-3). He was not a normal kind of priest thus likened to Christ.
Jesus our Father, You are our King & High Priest forever. Forgive us our sins & lead us in Your ways of righteousness. Bless all the priests, that they may do according to Your will. Amen
