The oldest priesthood

After Hebrews 7:11-28

Before the Levites.

before the sons of Aaron,

it was, and is, the oldest

priesthood. An order

of one, one person,

one man, the one sent

to serve, to minister, 

to save, one sent

to live and die and

rise again. This is

the priesthood, older

than Abraham, older

than Terah, older

than Adam. This is

the priest who created

the world; this priest

saved the world.

This priest is a king.
