I wasn't able to give Melchizedek any introduction because of space, but Melchizedek is a mysterious character so it's fitting. (Read the chapter and Hebrews 5 - 7 to find out more about him!)


Taking with a person about Melchizedek and I dont see it but he said Melchizedek had orbes around him did I miss something


Shirley, I don't know what you mean about "orbes" but if you mean "orbs" there are no orbs mentioned with Melchizedek. :)


Abram gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything and kept his oath to the Lord accepting nothing offered by the king of Sodom.

There were so many Kings initially in the chapter who banded together and later rebelled and the next interesting part was tithing and the refusal of Abram to take anything form the King in case he was accused of receiving. Lot was redeemed from captivity ??

Having a difficult time posting anything on my phone-keep losing it! First time I've noticed mention of a priest of the high God, or of Jerusalem!
