Vetting Status: high
[Melchizedek,] a priest not of Jews alone, but also of gentiles. Thus Christ too presented himself to God not on behalf of Jews alone, but on behalf of all mankind. He began his priestly office in the night during which he awaited his passion; he took bread and gave thanks and broke it and said: "take, eat, etc."
This Melchizedek was alive during the time of Abraham. [He was] a god-fearing man, a gentile, descended from the race of Sidon, son of Aigyptos, king of Libya. [It was he] who became a priest and king of the Canaanites and founded the city on the mount called Sion and named it Jerusalem, which is the city of peace. And he ruled there for 113 years.[1]
