Hebrews 7:11–14 (ESV)
Jesus Compared to Melchizedek
11 Now if perfection had been attainable through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need would there have been for another priest to arise after the order of Melchizedek, rather than one named after
the order of Aaron? 12 For when there is a change in the priesthood, there is necessarily a change in the law as well. 13 For the one of whom these things are spoken belonged to another tribe, from which no one has ever served at the altar. 14 For it is evident
that our Lord was descended from Judah, and in connection with that tribe Moses said nothing about priests.
In comparing Jesus to Melchizedek, the author of Hebrews points out that both Jesus and Melchizedek
are not from the Levitical priesthood. Jesus was descended from Judah. We know that Melchizedek and Jesus are from non Levitical tribes. To serve as a priest, normally you had to be a descendant of Levi, thus part of the Levite tribe.
I pray: O Lord, I know you are not a Levite, but you are still my prophet, priest and king. You have ushered in the new covenant and we are saved by Grace. Amen.
