Melchizedek and the Royal Priesthood
February 20, 2022
  1. Work together as a group to build a personal profile of Melchizedek. Who do you think he was? Where was he from? What does his name mean? What roles did he hold? What is his significance? Etc. (Genesis 14 and Hebrews 7)  
  2. What is the study of biblical “typology?” How is Melchizedek a “type” of Christ? 
  3. How does the preacher of Hebrews demonstrate in chapter 7 that the Levitical priesthood and law is inferior to the “better hope” we find in Jesus as our Royal Priest? (Heb. 7:19) 
  4. How does Romans 5:1-2 shed light on the themes we discussed so far from Hebrews? 
  5. Even though this chapter and concept of Melchizedek can be challenging to grasp, what have you drawn from this to apply to your spiritual life today?
