Jesus Compared to Melchizedek

11 Therefore, if perfection was through the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people have received the law), why is there yet a need for another priest to rise, after the order of Melchizedek, and not to be called after the order of Aaron? 12 For the priesthood being changed, of necessity there occurs a change of law also. 13 For He concerning whom these things are spoken belongs to another tribe, from which no one has officiated at the altar. 14 For it is evident that our Lord has risen out of Judah, regarding which tribe Moses spoke nothing concerning priesthood. 15 And it is yet even more clearer, if according to the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest 16 who has come, not according to the law of a fleshly commandment, but according to the power of an endless life. 17 For He testifies: "You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek." 18 For on the one hand an annulment comes about of the preceding commandment on account of its weakness and uselessness. 19 For the law made nothing perfect; but there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
