The Priestly Order of Melchizedek
It is evident from Scripture that Jesus is from the tribe of Judah; how therefore does He come to be the supreme and perfect High Priest? This week on Hear the Word of God, Eric Alexander helps us answer that question. As the writer of Hebrews explains, God promised a different order of priesthood, not a fleshly order, not an order that belongs to the law, but the order that belongs to a new covenant, the covenant of grace, of whom Melchizedek is the shadow, and Jesus is a reality. We have a great High Priest who is holy, guileless, undefiled, and who intercedes for His people. Praise God!
