Hebrews 7:17 ” For it is declared: You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”

There are many similarities that have been written about Melchizedek and Jesus Christ.  From Psalm 110:4 it says, “The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind: You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.”   This King Melchizedek of Salem (early Jerusalem) was also a High Priest…combining both the kingly and priestly duties and later gaining Jewish respect as an ideal Ruler.  In Hebrews 5:6 it tells us that Jesus is the Great High Priest called of God…but He is also the King of kings and the Lord of lords…and Ruler over all.  Jesus is the supreme King and Priest…ruling with justice and compassion.
