In the research on the Pentateuch, Genesis 14 is regarded as an enigmatic text. Being one of the few texts where Abraham seems to be related to world history, it could potentially tell us when the patriarch lived. Thus, there have been attempts to relate the text to ANE archaeology and history. However, others argue it is one of the latest additions to the patriarchal narratives albeit without arguing thoroughly for it. In this book, it is thoroughly argued for Genesis 14 having originated from scribal activity in Second Temple times: several earlier biblical texts have served as templates. "

The book is complete and unabridged, and is not to be confused with Calvin's commentaries. This work is not a facsimile, but has been edited to reflect contemporary spelling, and bracketed words in italics are inserted following some antiquated terms or phrases as a convenience for the modern reader. The brief Scripture sections preceding each sermon have been stylishly typeset to approximate their original appearance. This was done for two reasons: to maintain an accurate reproduction of the English text translated from Calvin's French translation, and to offer to the reader a taste of the rich and full majesty that so beautifully flows from translations of the Reformation era. Author John Calvin (1509-1564) One of the most influential reformers, his work was of significance throughout Europe and beyond.

Who was Melchizedek? Embark on an intriguing and interesting journey into the life of a strange and isolated, but unique personage called Melchizedek. He appears momentarily in the Bible on an occasion where he met the great Patriarch Abraham and then disappears from the pages of history just as suddenly as he appeared. He is said to be without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life according to the book of Hebrews. So the big questions that this book explores and attempt to answer about this strange figure are: In what way does his priestly order align with the Lord Jesus; yet differ from the Aaronic (Levitical) order of priesthood? Why should Melchizedek, and he alone of all the Old Testament characters, be thought of in a way that defiles human mortality? This book’s approach to the life of Melchizedek will leave you amused, instructed, enlightened, stirred up, and challenged but definitely not bored!

Melchizedek King of Sodom

The biblical figure Melchizedek appears just twice in the Hebrew Bible, and once more in the Christian New Testament. Cited as both the king of Shalem-understood by most scholars to be Jerusalem-and as an eternal priest without ancestry, Melchizedek's appearances become textual justification for tithing to the Levitical priests in Jerusalem and for the priesthood of Jesus Christ himself. But what if the text was manipulated? Robert R. Cargill explores the Hebrew and Greek texts concerning Melchizedek's encounter with Abraham in Genesis as a basis to unravel the biblical mystery of this character's origins. The textual evidence that Cargill presents shows that Melchizedek was originally known as the king of Sodom and that the later traditions about Sodom forced biblical scribes to invent a new location, Shalem, for Melchizedek's priesthood and reign. Cargill also identifies minor, strategic changes to the Hebrew Bible and the Samaritan Pentateuch that demonstrate an evolving, polemical, sectarian discourse between Jews and Samaritans competing for the superiority of their respective temples and holy mountains. The resulting literary evidence was used as the ideological motivation for identifying Shalem with Jerusalem in the Second Temple Jewish tradition. A brief study with far-reaching implications, Melchizedek, King of Sodom reopens discussion of not only this unusual character, but also the origins of both the priesthood of Christ and the role of early Israelite priest-kings.

The Mystery of Melchizedek Who was this strange Priest/King that received tithes from Abraham? (…and administered bread and wine to him?)How is Melchizedek relevant to the Messiah of Israel?Did Melchizedek have a temple that predated Solomon’s?Is the Jewish Kingdom as portrayed in the Old Testament simply an intermediate parenthesis within a larger expanse?Why are the distinctives so divergent from the enforced separation of the kingship and priesthood under David?Were the bread and wine served by Melchizedek eschatological? Did they embrace the Cross? (They, too, echo across the pages of the OT)Was the Lord’s Communion anticipated in Gen. 14? Deriving from some very recent discoveries in Jerusalem (although some are yet to be confirmed) these studies may challenge many of the comfortable traditions that have shaped our classic Biblical perspectives. Join us as we explore some fascinating challenges to our previous understandings of things that shape our ultimate destiny…

This is a READ ALOUD BOOK – it is important that your voice be heard – For the spoken word has power and our power is given through the very words that we speak – It takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to read the entire book – My attention was pinged when I read about the MEETING between Melchizedek King of Salem and Abraham- the Father of Nations – For what did Melchizedek share with Abraham that was so much of a BLESSING, that Abraham gave Melchizedek a tenth of the spoils of the battle between the Kings at Mount Hobah? Additionally, what was the significance of the BREAD and WINE OFFERING? I began my search for the answer to these two questions and I found much more – the WORDS SPOKEN BY MELCHIZEDEK about the CREATION of MAN and the TIME BEFORE THE FLOOD. I was farther blessed with the SPIRIT OF EMMANUEL who shared with me the DEATH AND RESURRECTION of JESUS and how it ushered in the GRAND PRIESTHOOD AND KINGSHIP OF EMMANUEL – AND – introduced the HOLY into MY KNOWING -
