Were you saying Abraham/Joseph etc. are types of Jesus?
I believe Melchizedek was a Theophany, and I have very good scriptural reason to believe so. However, that shouldn't disqualify Him from being a Priest even if it were established in Redemption.
A Theophany is an appearance of a pre-incarnate Christ (although that's a little arbitrary since time doesn't apply to God). Other examples include the Angel of the Lord and Captain of the Host.
I would like to point out that only the Isrealite Priests were supposed to be from Levi. There are other priests mentioned in the Bible that are counted as Priests in Redemption (like Abel, Priests of Christ, etc.) that are not from Levi, also I'd like to note that Levi himself is not a priest either. I don't see why for Redemption terms we should limit the definition of Priest to only Decedents of Levi.
There is more arguement that Abel could be a priest then that he was a prophet.Question: can anyone explain why he is a Prophet? (or at least has the identifier)
All Hebrew Priests are from the line of Levi (and Aaron more specifically). Some people count for Priests in Redemption if they were not Hebrew, and they can come from outside the Levitical line.
I'm pretty sure there's no Jesus Hero Although, you could make the argument technically for Mighty Warrior being a Priest in the order of Melchizedek
Okay... I'll agree he's a prophet from that.
I'll have to ask for this definition of Priest.My understanding of Priest:Priest - a person that intercedes (by making offerings) to appease the justice of God and to worship Him (or a false god)This is my understanding, does anyone else have a different definition of Priest?
