This teaching focuses discovering why the author of Hebrews chose to use an obscure Biblical figure, Melchizedek, in order to explain the priesthood of Yeshua. We will analyze the two Tanakh passages that Melchizedek appears in, Genesis 14 and Ps 110, and then explore texts from the Second Temple period to see that the Melchizedek Scroll (11Q13) is the best document to help us understand Hebrews' usage of Melchizedek. We will discover how these two texts center around the concept of an eschatological Jubilee.
This was recorded at Tabernacle of David, Burnsville MN on 4-30-16. It is a "rough draft" of the teaching that will be recorded on green screen in a month or two with much more detail.
