Overview

You are a priest forever—in the honored order of Melchizedek.(5:6)

Melchizedek is perhaps the most mysterious figure in Scripture. He appears for the first time in Genesis 14:17-20. But who is Melchizedek? Who is this enigmatic figure stepping out of the shadows only to return again? Is he a man or an angel or something else altogether?

This retelling of the Book of Hebrews is designed to help readers understand how Jesus completes the law and prophets. David Capes has written a compelling comparison of the unusual character from Genesis, Melchizedek, and the Liberator found in the New Testament, Jesus. His story is followed by the complete text of Hebrews retold by Greg Garrett.
