    The Bible actually says that Melchizidek was not Jesus. Hebrews 7:3 says Melchizidek was "made like the Son of God". Note that it says "Like the Son of God", meaning that he was not the Son of God, but like Him.

    We do not believe that Melchizedek was the incarnate Jesus Christ, nor do we believe that Hebrews 9:27 condemns baptism for the dead. There will be a judgment eventually.

    OH, BOY---:blush1:now I've done it! I went by memory instead of verifying my info---I take it back!!!
    The statement I confused was that Jesus spoke through Melchizedek as His priest. I remembered it as He was Jesus---I humbly apologize--crow tastes horrible---too many feathers.

    There is nothing in the Bible that teaches that Jesus was Melchizadek. That is faulty teaching, completely erroneous. The idea is contradicted by the Book of John, Chapter 1.

    Those who seek to propagate the faulty interpretation involving Melchizadek ... usually also seek to corrupt the translation of the initial verses in the Book of John as well.

    That's what we're *all* trying to figure out at this point.

    Unless they fit your agenda, then you stick to with all your heart. This particular commentary basically says that Paul was talking about Melchizedek's priesthood was without beginning or end of days, without father or mother etc.
    And this commentary also outlines Melchizedek's lineage, really screwing up your thought that Melchizedek was without beginning of days or end of day, without father and without mother, etc.

    So I would expect nothing else from you except some statement like, commentraries have to be taken in light of context, unless they fit my belief, and then if they do not fit my belief, I do not adhere to them.

    Pretty much in line to all people, but you are more passionately inclined to think this way.

    Interesting reading, thank you. The Church of Jesus Christ also believes that Paul was talking of Melchizedek's priesthood, and not his lineage. And for sure Melchizedek was not Jesus. So again thank you for this interesting post.
