Texts: Genesis 14; Hebrews 7; Mark 10:46-52
The author of Hebrews spends a great deal of energy comparing Jesus to the Old Testament character of Melchizedek. Not only is Jesus similar to Melchizedek, but Melchizeded is greater than Levi and the Levitical priests. The logical argument provided by Hebrews helped the original readers understand how they could put their faith in Jesus as their Great High Priest, even though he was from the tribe of Judah. Because of this, Jesus offers complete salvation which is eternal. He invites us to enter into an ongoing relationship with Him, and like Blind Bartimaeus, we are to follow Him wherever He leads.
