WALKING WITH GOD—Who is Melchizedek?
You will see the name of Melchizedek when reading Genesis 14. I felt Melchizedek is essential in the Bible, so I found references to him.
First, Melchizedek is the king of righteousness and is described as the king of Salem and priest of the Most High God. So, there is evidence the high priest, Melchizedek, referred to Jesus. Second, Bible says, “where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek” (Hebrews 6:20).
With that, we see the dramatic meeting between Abraham and Melchizedek. Abraham gave Melchizedek the tithe, who brought bread and wine and blessed Abraham.
