Melchizedek, Mystery of the Bible

The Bible states that Christ is a mystery (Eph 5:32), so only when we realize Christ through the Bible and unravel each mystery can we be sure of our salvation. Among those mysteries is a prophecy about Melchizedek. Even in the time of the Early Church, this mystery was difficult to understand.

“We have much to say about this [Melchizedek], but it is hard to make it clear to you ...”

Hebrews 5:11

Melchizedek can be found in the Old Testament as the only priest granting blessing through bread and wine (Ge 14:17–20). The Old Testament Melchizedek is a shadow fulfilled by Jesus Christ when he brought the bread and wine of Passover (Mt 26:26–28). Simple, no? But Apostle Paul described Melchizedek further.

“This Melchizedek was king of Salem and priest of God Most High ... Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.”

The Bible refers to genealogy as the twelve tribes of Israel, however, the genealogical record of Jesus is found at the beginning of the gospels (Mt 1:1–16), meaning He had genealogy. And, from a spiritual viewpoint, Christ only family members who do the will of God are acknowledged as true family (Mt 24:50). Jesus was born in a family that did the will of God, and therefore He was with father and mother.

As these two points of Melchizedek were unfulfilled in the time of Christ, the Savior must appear again from a far-off land in the East, be born from unbelieving parents and have no Jewish blood. Additionally, he must bless with the bread and wine of Passover, proving Himself to be the Savior. Only one person in human history has fulfilled these exact points, and He is Christ Ahnsahnghong.
