Here mortal men receive tithes, but there he receives them, of whom it is witnessed that he lives. Hebrews 7:8

Again the author brings in the eternality of Melchizedek’s priesthood. As previously noted, this doesn’t mean that Melchizedek is an eternal being, but because Scripture provides no information on him concerning his death, he is a pattern of Jesus who possesses an eternal ministry.Read the rest

Now beyond all contradiction the lesser is blessed by the better. Hebrews 7:7

And indeed those who are of the sons of Levi, who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to receive tithes from the people according to the law, that is, from their brethren, though they have come from the loins of Abraham; Hebrews 7:5

As is recorded in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, the author now explains that even though the tribe of Levi descended from Abraham, just as all the other tribes of Israel (their brethren), they were to receive a tenth of the produce of the land.Read the rest

Now consider how great this man was, to whom even the patriarch Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils. Hebrews 7:4

The author now begins to explain the level of greatness of Melchizedek, something he will do for the next seven verses. The reason for this is because he will then show how the greatness of Melchizedek’s priesthood exceeded that of Aaron’s.Read the rest
