Day 4: Hebrews 7:1-10

Read: Hebrews 7:1-10 again.

Think:

  • Verse 5 talks about tithing in ancient Israel. It explains that men who were from the Israelite tribe of Levi were required to collect tithes from everyone else in Israel when they become priests. According to verse 5, what required the Levite priests to do this?
  • Verse 6 contrasts the collection of tithes by the Levites with “this man.” Who is “this man” in the context of Hebrews 7:1-10?
  • Verse 6 says that even though “this man” was not a Levite he collected tithes from Abraham and blessed Abraham. What does this suggest about “this man’s” priesthood?
