This book is an interesting comparison of Melchisedec and Jesus Christ.
The author sheds light on this mysterious character in the Bible, Melchisedec is only mentioned a mere handful of times in
the Bible, 2x in the OT and in one entire chapter In Hebrews in the NT.
I would recommend all to read this.
Many times we remember the stories of the Biblical historical figures that are constantly spoken of (Abraham, Lot, Noah, Moses,
Jesus, John, Luke, Mark, Mary, Samaritan woman, etc ) yet we forget the roles of other individuals whom were of significance.
How can this king-priest be the head of an order
to which Jesus belongs?
Bob Dallmann is a man of solid integrity, deep reflection,
and profound commitment to his Lord, Jesus.
In this brief study, Bob brings forward the significant character Melchizedek (or, as the King James crew and Bob have it,
Melchisedec), a striking figure who appears only twice in the Bible--king of (Jeru)Salem and priest of God Most High, offered
a tithe by the patriarch Abraham (Genesis 14), and then resurfacing in three chapters (5-7) of the closely knit argument of
He may spark quick questions in most minds--who IS this guy? And what's he doing in my Bible? For Bob, there are no insignificant
words in scripture, and here he shares the fruit of his prayerful, careful reading and reflection concerning this person,
whose priestly order includes Jesus, and who is the namesake of the senior priesthood claimed by the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-Day Saints.
Hope that's enough to encourage you to read this for yourself. With suitable humility, Bob Dallmann makes no final claims
for his hypothesis, leaving judgment to God and your opinions on these matters to Important questions, careful research, and
cautious conclusions from a man of faith and integrity.
The occasional times I ever considered Melchisedek I would be puzzled who He might be. When I came across this book
I was intrigued and decided to read it. The author makes it very clear that Melchisedek is none other than Jesus Himself.
All of my questions have been answered. It is so clear that what the Bible says is true!
A closer look at Melchisidec brings deeper understanding of Jesus and God's plan of salvation. The author makes a
strong case for Melchiisidec being a pre-incarnate appearance of Christ, and the passages used enable Christians to recognize
God's direction and power from Genesis throughout the entire Bible. Well-researched and written, 5 stars.
After reading this wonderful study on Melchisedec, I concluded that its author, Mr. Dallmann, is most likely a Biblical
One of my favorite stories in the bible is the Road to Emmaus and how "their eyes were opened," because of what Jesus said
and did and then disappeared before their eyes. Mr. Dallmann takes us on that road with Melchisedec, reminding every student
of the bible that although God's word is seemingly cloaked in a form of biblical code, a persistent character study can reveal
that the Messiah is truly transparent in all the books of the bible.
To truly appreciate the depth of this character study, I believe the reader must take off the glasses prescribed by 'time',
and listen to what is revealed through the eternal message.
study does a point by point, text by text breakdown of who Melchisedec was according to the Bible. I had read and heard of
Melchisedec several times throughout my Christian walk, but I usually breezed over what I read because I always thought of
him as obscure and I knew nothing about him. I am so glad I read this book. What a WONDERFUL Lord and Savior we have in Jesus
Christ. Our King of Kings, our High Priest, our EVERYTHING.
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. (Rom 11:36) ~Wayne Groover
I was excited and had high anticipation while reading this book. I have been a Christian for over twenty years and
Melchisedec has always been a character in the Bible I never really could figure out.
After just a few chapters in this book, the evidence presented made perfect sense. While this person from the Old Testament
does not affect our salvation, understanding who he is can help our walk with God.
I found this book very interesting and very much Biblically based.
is a great resource about a subject that I had heretofore not been familiar with. The most interesting thing I discovered
is the overwhelming evidence of Melchisedec's Christ-like qualities. I came away from the study being thoroughly convinced.
This book, although it is not long in its actual length, provides the scriptural punch I like to see from someone who writes
about the Lord. Well done!
has always been a mysterious person in the Christian Bible. I have never thought to study him in depth, though clearly he
is very important. This short book makes the case convincingly about who he is, and it is a mind blowing revelation.
I would recommend this book to everyone who considers themselves to be a Bible believing Christian.
The High Priesthood of Jesus Christ is patterned after the Order of Melchisedec. Obviously,
this is an important fact.
There are many cult and occult groups that have invented "Melchisedec Order" priesthoods.
A solid Bible based investigation of "Melchisedec" will help prepare you for conversations with members of these groups.
