Melchizedek

Hebrews 5:5-10

So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him,


  “You are my Son,
    today I have begotten you”;

as he says also in another place,


  “You are a priest forever,
    after the order of Melchizedek.”

In the days of his flesh, Jesus1 offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, 10 being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
