Today we take a deep look at the mysterious character of Melchizedek. The connections drawn between Melchizedek and Christ aren’t easily understood by today’s audience, due to the many cultural differences that exist between our times. We will look into who Melchizedek is and the function of Old Testament Priesthood, illustrating how these things point to Christ. Ultimately this points to the good news we as Christians have in our great High Priest and King, Jesus the Messiah.
