Gather...The Bible refers to Jesus in many ways:
Christ, Son of Man, Rabbi, Lord, and so on. As we approach the
culmination of Lent, in Hebrews we hear one of the oddest: Jesus is
"a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek." Melchizedek is a
mysterious figure who came to Abram when he was down and out. Abram
had heard the call and promise of God and had followed-and it had
gotten him nothing but trouble. No land, no heir. So God sent to
Abram this Melchizedek, "priest of the Most High God," who blessed
him and gave him bread and
wine. Jesus comes to us like this, when we are down and out, and He
blesses us and nourishes us with His true body and blood. As
Melchizedek was appointed to serve Abram, and Jesus is appointed to serve us, so we are appointed
to serve one another.
