Hebrews: The Greatness of Christ

Who is This King of Righteousness?

  • Melchizadek the Enigma
  • Melchizedek's Superiority of Levi
  • It's All About Jesus

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Hebrews 7:1-10. Also read Genesis 14 for the historical background. Who is Melchizedek? What do we know about him?
  2. Why does the writer of Hebrews state that Melchizedek resembles the Son of God in verse 3? What are the similarities?
  3. In what ways is Melchizedek superior to Levi? Why is this important?
  4. Kid's Catechism question 74 asks, "Why do you need Christ as your priest.?" Answer: "Because I am guilty of breaking God's law." How does linking Christ's priesthood to Melchizedek bolster our confidence and joy in Christ as our priest?
