Don't you just love...
...how the Bible is like a master recipe book? Take a handful of verses in Genesis, throw in another verse in Psalms and top it off with a few verses in Hebrews and voila! You have a type of Christ!
(What is she talking about?) <--that's you
For those of you who weren't at study today, the answer is: Melchizedek! Genesis 14:18-20, Psalm 110:4 and Hebrews 7:1-3 are all the verses we have on this mystery man, but we are told that Christ would be a priest in the same manner as Melchizedek. So, as believers, we study, we dig, we compare scripture with scripture and we draw closer to the Lord with our results.
I'm not going into the details of our conclusions because I taught through it already today, so call me if you need to understand the specifics here. My point is this - don't you just love how the Bible, written by so many different men, over 1500 years, just flows seamlessly together and all points back to God? His plan, His story, His will, His character. It's all about Him. He is the theme of the Word. And it's actually fun in the process!
Hope you all have a good day...I'm just stoked about how cool the Word is...
