Default Re: Jews 4 Jesus..."What proof do you have that Jesus was the Messiah?"

Okay, Psholtz, you're right in that the priesthood of Melchizedek is mentioned in Hebrews in the New Testament - my mistake.

But there is no mention of Jesus having been ordained into this priesthood. It says, at the end of chapter 6 that..."where Jesus has entered on our behalf, becoming high priest forever according to the order of Melchizadek."
Can't see this as any proof that Jesus was ordained into an order. The author of Hebrews, who is unknown, was speaking to Jewish Christians, and possibly using Melchizadek as a reference of how they should behave, as according to the interpretation in my bible, these Christians were in danger of apostasy from their Christian faith (they were slacking off).
You might try Hebrews 7:16..
