Cary Cox, from Genesis 14 (Genesis Study 30). Lot’s foolishness gets him in trouble, but Abram comes to the rescue. However, the real battle for Abraham is a test of spiritual discernment in his meeting of two kings. Melchizedek speaks God’s word to Abram, which helps him see through the temptation from the wicked king of Sodom. Our trust must be anchored in the Lord. Our treasure is in him alone!
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 7:11-25. We continue to look at how the story of Melchizedek points to the priesthood of Jesus Christ. We see how the Christian relates to the Law of Moses – its priesthood and whole system of approach to God. Christ alone is our approach to God.
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 7:1-10. The author of Hebrews digs deep into the early chapters of Genesis, showing us a great picture of Jesus Christ our Priest from the story of a mysterious priest-king named Melchizedek. Jesus’ priesthood is superior to the priests given in the Law of Moses; He brings us to God!
