Elder Jonathan Wise considers the mysterious character of Melchisedec, the king of Salem and the priest of the most high God. Melchisedec appears for just a few verses to bless Abram and receive tithes of him. One more reference to the eternal priesthood of Melchisedec in Psalms, and then an exposition of his priesthood in Hebrews. We see the beautiful picture of Melchisedec as the picture of Christ, who is our Great High Priest forever, not of the Levitical priesthood, but a Priest forever after the order of Melchisedec.
