    How do these verses show who Jesus was? Verse 1 is speaking

    about Melchisedec who met Abraham after he had delivered Lot

    along with all that was pillaged from Sodom. The psalms tells us

    that Jesus would be a priest according to the order of Melchisedec.

    Verse 2 & 3 tells us that this priest of Salem had a lot in common

    with the Son of God.

      A lot in common. Agreed. Specifically this scripture appears to be stating that deity is what the Son of God and Melchisedek have in common.

    1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

    2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

    3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

    These verses say nothing about who Jesus Christ is, nor his divinity, nor his place in the Godhead. They refer to Melchizedek, king of Salem, Abraham's contemporary.

    His priesthood is "Without father, without mother, without descent, (unlike Aaronic authority) having neither beginning of days, nor end of life;" That is why he continues to be a priest unto God today.

    Scriptures can be misconstrued. How would you understand the Scripture about Jesus not giving way to a seizure of considering himself to be equal to God - Philippians 2:6 - who, although he was existing in God’s form, gave no consideration to a seizure, namely, that he should be equal to God. - - - - That is why it is so important to consider the whole embodiment of the Scriptures to make sure we get an accurate knowledge of truth, which is required for salvation - 1 Timothy 2:4 – whose (God’s) will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth. - - - - For example, Jesus himself never claimed to be equal to God, but he did claim to be God's Son - John 10:36 - do you say to me whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You blaspheme,’ because I said, ‘I am God’s Son’? - - - - The Scriptures say that we should use our power of reason - Romans 12:1 - Therefore, I appeal to you by the compassions of God, brothers, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, a sacred service with your power of reason. - - - - With that in mind, and in view of the foregoing Scriptures, how reasonable is it to think that Jesus was praying to himself while he was on earth? How reasonable is it to think that Jesus sent himself to the earth? These things are not reasonable. So, it's very important that we follow this Scriptural advice to make sure we are indeed getting the truth - Acts 17:11 . . . carefully examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so. - - - - Because Satan misleads people by the use of false religious teachings - 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 – 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps disguising himself as an angel of light. 15 It is therefore nothing extraordinary if his ministers also keep disguising themselves as ministers of righteousness. But their end will be according to their works. - - - - So, we need to examine the Scriptures carefully to make sure we are getting accurate knowledge that leads to being saved. And to receive everlasting life, Jesus spoke of coming to know him and his father, not a trinity - John 17:3 - This means everlasting life, their coming to know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ. - - - - So I encourage everyone to visit this web site and examine the Scriptures for yourself.

    By reciting the rosary each day with care, a person can better comprehend the Mystery of the Trinity, can better know Jesus and Jesus truly is, and can better know the true meanings of Bible verses.

    The blessing is not received just by reading those three verses, as some answers here show - they've read the verses but do not see the deity of Christ in them. Some even deny that they show Jesus as part of the Godhead.

    So, how do those verses show who Jesus really is? The key lies in how it is said of the Son of God - "Without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life..."

    Then those points are applied to Melchizedek, the king-priest of Abraham's day. The point of the writer is to explain how the resurrected Christ "remains a priest forever." He appeals to the encounter of Abraham with Melchizedek to argue for the uniqueness of Christ. Another point is that Abraham gave Melchizedek a tenth of the spoils, and how Melchizedek blessed Abraham. This proves that Melchizedek was 'superior' to Abraham, in a spiritual sense. And that is how the writer of the letter to Hebrew Christians of the 1st century flags up the deity of Christ. Melchizedek is used as a 'type', to prefigure the future earthly mission of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

    But it is the uncreated status of Christ that is the key point here, for the human Melchizedek was a historic person; it is lack of his genealogy that is taken as evidence for claiming that - far more so - the Son of God has no parentage, genealogy, origin or end of life. That is why Christians can be confident that He is the supreme High Priest who is forever alive to intercede for Christians. The rest of the chapter builds up on this argument, culminating in that key point (verses 22 to 28).

    The blessing lies in reading ALL of this staggering information about our Lord and Savior, and believing it.

      Agreed. Highlights the astonishing deity of Christ. However, this seems very clear that Melchisedek is also Deity.

    Have you ever considered becoming an atheist? The hours are flexible and we are looking for new members. And there is very little reading required.

    Just think about it OK. It just may be the best decision you ever made.

    It's a complicated set of messages to learn about that. I do agree with you, Jesus holds many titles including the fact that Jesus is God.
