Day 6: Hebrews 7:1-10

Read: Hebrews 7:1-10 again

Think: 

  • In your own words, what does verse 8 mean?
  • Verse 9 suggests that even Levi paid tithes to Melchizedek. Verses 8-9 explain how. In your own words, how does the author of Hebrews argue that Levi paid tithes to Melchizedek?
  • Now that you have thought through the phrases and clauses of this section, what does the author seem to be arguing for in this passage?
  • Look again at the big idea you wrote last Thursday. Is it off target, on target, or a bull’s eye? How might you reword it to make it a bull’s eye if it isn’t?
