1 For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, 2 and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything. He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace. Hebrews 7:1-2
We all long for peace. How can we live in a land characterized by peace? Not without knowing its King. In this sermon we explore the mysterious character of Melchizedek who points us to Jesus, King of righteousness, King of peace, and our priest forever. Delivered to the Galena Bible Church by pastor Chris Kopp, Sunday July 13th, 2014.
