Introduction There are many mysterious characters in the Bible. Even those we know a lot about are still a mystery to us. In my estimation, the most mysterious and most misunderstood is Melchizedek. Only one other person comes to my mind that is a close second in mystery, and that Is Enoch. We know more about Enoch than we do about Melchizedek. If you look up Melchizedek, you will find many people claiming to be of the Melchizedekian order. You will also find references to Melchizedek as an “Ascended Master." This is a more recent development of the New Age movement and is based on channeled wisdom. Since that evidence relies on such material, I will not include it in this book since there is no way for me to confirm the veracity of the claims presented through channeling. I am not saying it is not true, I am simply stating that I can’t verify it. In this book, I will examine Melchizedek throughout the various texts he is found in. I will attempt to use the language of the source material I used to add clarity when and if necessary.

Here is what I will cover in this book: I will shed light on the meaning and origin of the “name” Melchizedek. I will examine Melchizedek In the Old Testament. It is here where he first appears. I will discuss the Canaanite theory of his origins. We will take a brief tour through the Dead Sea Scrolls to see how he is portrayed. In it, he is the enemy of Belial. Melchizedek can be found in the Gnostic Gospels and the Apocrypha. I will examine these sources. I will examine the New Testament sources about him and how he is portrayed. Melchizedek is found in early Rabbinic texts. It is in these documents that his identity changes within the Jewish tradition. I will discuss Melchizedek as he was understood by the early Christian Church. I will examine the writings of the historians Josephus and Philo and how they understood Melchizedek. Lastly, I will present you two short, but POWERFUL Q/Kabbalistic meditations you can perform to tap into his energy. You will NOT want to miss that. Let us begin.

Melchizedek in the Old Testament We first meet Melchizedek in the Old Testament. He appears out of nowhere, and out of context. It is very reminiscent of how Enoch appeared in the Old Testament. In Genesis, we see a genealogical list, and it states, Jared begat Enoch and Enoch was no more because he “went” with God. There is no explanation, we have no idea who this guy is. That’s pretty much it. He almost seems like an afterthought. Fortunately, a rich tradition was formed around Enoch, and therefore we have a lot of information about him. The same scenario occurs with Melchizedek. However, the tradition is not as robust. We first encounter Melchizedek in Genesis 14:18. Before we look at the verse, let me add context. Before verse 18, Abraham found himself in a battle against the people who captured his brother. He was victorious in this battle. The King of Sodom hears this and greets Abraham. The King’s intention was to take the captives and leave the spoils to Abraham (Genesis 14: 1-17, 21). Suddenly, right smack in the middle of the scene, we see this. Genesis 14:18-20: “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine; and he was a Priest of God the Most High. And he blessed him, and said: 'Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Maker of heaven and earth; and blessed be God the Most High, who hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.' And he gave him a tenth of all.” Then, right at verse 21, the story resumes as if nothing happened. Melchizedek isn’t mentioned again until centuries later in the Psalms. Psalms 110:4: “The LORD hath sworn and will not repent: 'Thou art a Priest forever after the order and manner of Melchizedek.” That is pretty much it as far as the Old Testament is concerned. We are not told who this character is other than that he is a Priest and King of Salem (Jerusalem). There is, apparently, an order that is named after him; an order, we know nothing about and is NEVER mentioned again in the Old Testament. I could just leave it at that. However, there is A LOT to discuss here. We will tackle each item one-by-one. Let us start with his name. Melchizedek, in Hebrew means King of Righteousness, it can also mean MY King is righteousness.

Melchi means King and MY King, Zedek means righteousness. Some have posited that his name is derived from the Canaanite. Melchi meaning “My King," Saduq/Zedek meaning the Canaanite God Saduq which is a cognate of the Hebrew word Zedek. Saduq being in Ugaritic. Essentially, My King Is Saduq/Zedek. I will discuss this in the next chapter. I think you will find that interesting because there is convincing evidence that he may have been a Canaanite king. Another thing that stands out about him is the fact the he is both a Priest AND a King. This might not seem so odd at first, but it is certainly an oddity in the Biblical tradition. I say this because it says in the 2 Chronicles 26:16-23: “But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up so that he did corruptly, and he trespassed against the LORD his God; for he went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense. And Azariah the Priest went in after him, and with him fourscore Priests of the LORD, that were valiant men; and they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him: 'It pertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the LORD, but to the Priests the sons of Aaron that are consecrated it pertaineth to burn incense; go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thy honour from the LORD God.' Then Uzziah was wroth; and he had a censer in his hand to burn incense; and while he was wroth with the Priests, the leprosy broke forth in his forehead before the Priests in the house of the LORD, beside the altar of incense. And Azariah the chief Priest, and all the Priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out quickly from thence; yea, himself made haste also to go out, because the LORD had smitten him. And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a house set apart, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the LORD; and Jotham his son was over the king's house, judging the people of the land. Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, write. So Uzziah slept with his fathers; and they buried him with his fathers in the field of burial which belonged to the kings; for they said: 'He is a leper'; and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.” It is clearly saying that Kings of Israel CANNOT be Priests at the same time. Priests are of a designated class, and any King who tries to be Priest will be smitten by the Lord. Considering this, it seems odd that Melchizedek is both a King and a Priest. Then again, the stories in Chronicles come way after Melchizedek. The King/Priest prohibition didn’t come until later. The only time a King could be a Priest in Judaism proper was during the time of the Maccabees. In either case, there is something different about him. On the other hand, perhaps, this is all due to a scribal error. I say this because of the way his story is thrust into a scene where it doesn’t belong. It is possible the redactors didn’t catch it. If that is the case, it means his story may have been a part of an earlier tradition that was being suppressed. It would be hard to prove this

theory, but it is something to consider. Let us go back to the reference in the Psalms. Something stands out here as well. The Priestly class in the Bible is said to be from Aaron. Aaron comes after Abraham. However, he came way before David. By the time David came to power and composed the Psalms, there was just one Priestly class from the line of Aaron. That was Torah law, Priests could ONLY come from the line of Aaron. Yet, in the Psalms above, it hints at a Priestly order of Melchizedek. What Priestly order of Melchizedek? This indicates that perhaps there was a kind of shadow Priestly order that was for the spiritual elite. Or, maybe God was saying that David shared qualities of Melchizedek, the Priest.. When we look at the Old Testament, there is no further information at all. Aside from the oddities I mentioned above, nothing else can be gleaned. If anything, there are more questions now, than when we first started. Fortunately for us, just as with Enoch, the mystery of Melchizedek spawned an exegetical tradition. We will take a look at those later in this book.

Melchizedek, a Canaanite King? As I stated in the previous chapter, there is a theory that the name Melchizedek could be defined as My King is Zedek. Zedek is a cognate for the Ugaritic word Saduq. Saduq/Zedek is a Canaanite god. The Canaanite theory seems to imply that perhaps this person is a Canaanite King/Priest of some sort. On the surface, this argument makes little sense. Would Abraham accept a blessing from a Canaanite Priest? And even worse, would he offer the Priest 10% of everything in the name of the Lord El? It seems like Abraham viewed Melchizedek as the embodiment of purity and holiness. Such a view of a foreign King/Priest by Abraham would have been forbidden… Or, maybe not. Let us dig deeper. Here is the verse again in English. I will follow it with the verse in Hebrew since it is in the Hebrew that the point is made. Genesis 14:18-20: “And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine; and he was a Priest of God the Most High. And he blessed him and said: 'Blessed be Abram of God Most High, Maker of heaven and earth; and blessed be God the Most High, who hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.' And he gave him a tenth of all.” Hebrew:

‫ ְלֵאל ֶעְליוֹן‬,‫ הוִֹציא ֶלֶחם ָו ָייִן; ְוהוּא ֹכֵהן‬,‫ֶצ ֶדק ֶמֶל ָשֵׁלם‬-‫וַּמְלִכּי‬ ‫ ֹק ֵנה ָשַׁמיִם ָואָ ֶרץ‬,‫עְליוֹן‬ ֶ ‫ ָבּרוּ אְַב ָרם לְֵאל‬:‫ ַוֹיּאַמר‬,‫ַו ְיָב ְרֵכהוּ‬ ‫ ִמֹכּל‬,‫לוֹ ַמֲעֵשׂר‬-‫ִמ ֵגּן ָצ ֶרי ְבּ ָי ֶד ; ַו ִיֶּתּן‬-‫ ֲאֶשׁר‬,‫עְליוֹן‬ ֶ ‫וָּברוּ ֵאל‬ The name of God used in these verses is “El-Elyon." El in yellow, means God in Hebrew, and Elyon, in green means “highest." The Highest God. El is also the name of High God of the Canaanites. During this time, the name most often used by the patriarchs such as Abraham was El or El with a title. Let us look at the English, but it is the Hebrew where we discover that Abraham knew God as El.

Genesis Chapter 17:1: “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him: 'I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be thou wholehearted.” In Hebrew:

,‫אְַב ָרם‬-‫ִתְּשִׁעים ָשׁ ָנה ְוֵתַשׁע ָשׁ ִנים; ַו ֵיּ ָרא ְיה ָוה ֶאל‬-‫ ֶבּן‬,‫ַו ְיִהי אְַב ָרם‬ .‫ ֶוְה ֵיה ָתִמים‬,‫ִהְתַהֵלּ ְלָפ ַני‬--‫ש ַדּי‬ ַׁ ‫ֵאל‬-‫ַוֹיּאֶמר ֵאָליו ֲא ִני‬ As you see, the word in Yellow is El, just like in the verses I shared above. The word in green, Shaddai, means “Almighty.” We see that both Melchizedek and Abraham know God as El. Abraham had no problem being blessed my Melchizedek in the name of El, nor did he have a problem giving Melchizedek a 10% tithe in the name of El. This alone is not proof that Melchizedek was a Canaanite King. It is the next two pieces of information that make a more compelling case. As we saw earlier, it states that Melchizedek is the King of Salem. Salem, according to most scholars is a reference to Jerusalem. The word Salem makes up half of the name JeruSALEM. Jerusalem had at least seventy names in the Bible according to the Jewish tradition found in the Midrash; an exegetical text. Let us now fast-forward for a moment to the time of Joshua. Let’s look at two verses in the book of Joshua. I will only present it in English since the English is accurate enough to make the point. Joshua 10: 1: “Now it came to pass, when Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem heard how Joshua had taken Ai, and had utterly destroyed it; as he had done to Jericho and her king, so he had done to Ai and her king; and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel and were among them; …” Joshua 10: 3: “Wherefore Adoni-zedek king of Jerusalem sent unto Hoham king of Hebron, and unto Piram king of Jarmuth, and unto Japhia king of Lachish, and unto Debir king of Eglon, …” Notice anything interesting in the two verses above? The name of the king of Jerusalem is Adonai Zedek meaning my lord is Zedek. So now we have mention of two kings of Jerusalem with Zedek as part of their name. The thing is, Adonai Zedek was a known Canaanite King. He was an enemy of Israel and the Hebrews. Being a Canaanite, he was most certainly a worshiper of Baal and El.

Let us look at what we have. We have two kings of Jerusalem that both worshiped El. Both happened to have Zedek as part of their name. I don’t know about you, but that seems like quite a coincidence. I know what you might be thinking. It would seem unprecedented for a Canaanite King or any foreigner to be so gracious and helpful to the Hebrews. However, the thing is, it is not unprecedented. There are a few instances where God blesses certain foreign persons and conferred upon them righteousness even though they were polytheists and citizens of nations that were hostile towards the Hebrews. Case in point: When Moses was wandering in the desert before he started his mission to free the Hebrews from bondage, he was taken in by Jethro, also known as Reuel in some verses. Jethro was a non-Hebrew and a PRIEST of Midian no less. A Priest of what? I can assure you he was not a Priest of the Hebrew God. Not only that, Moses married Jethro’s daughter. Exodus 3: 1: “Now Moses was keeping the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the Priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the farthest end of the wilderness, and came to the mountain of God, unto Horeb.” What does the Old Testament say about the religion of the Midianites? Numbers 22:4: “And Moab said unto the elders of Midian: 'Now will this multitude lick up all that is round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field.'--And Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time. —" Numbers 22:7: “And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam and spoke unto him the words of Balak.” Here we see there is a kind of religious and political alliance between the Moabites and the Midianites. At the time, we know that the Midianites worshiped Baal-Peor, Asherah and other Gods. The most popular Moabite god is Chemosh, which I will mention in a future book. As you can see with Jethro, even polytheists can be blessed by God and be a blessing to the Hebrews. Something tells me that there is a lot more religious interaction going on here than most would admit. In fact, scholarly rumor has it that the Midianites may have had more influence on the Hebrew faith than people care to admit, but that is not for this book. Considering what I have presented above, it is not out of the realm of possibility that

Melchizedek was a Canaanite King and Priest who helped Abraham. Now, is this conclusive proof that Melchizedek was a Canaanite King? No! However, If the above similarities between Melchizedek and Adonai Zedek are a mere coincidence, it is a pretty damn good one. I am not the only one who thinks that Melchizedek may have been a Canaanite king, I will discuss that a bit later in the book.

Melchizedek in the Dead Sea Scrolls The Dead Sea Scrolls is a treasure trove of information. It contains texts that shed light on aspects of Judaism we can’t glean from other texts. It is in a few of these scrolls that we find the mention of Melchizedek. The main text was found in cave 11. It is often called the 11QMelchizedek or 11th cave, Qumran Melchizedek. Qumran is the location of the cave. In the text, Melchizedek is far more than just a King and Priest. He is now a supernatural being that will fight the forces of darkness led by Belial. After you read the verses below, you will see that the writers of the Dead Sea Scrolls didn’t view Melchizedek as a Canaanite King. That would be highly problematic if they did. Let us look at a few of these texts. I will supply the texts in English since they convey the same message that is found in the Hebrew. 11Q13 Col. II: 9 9: “it is the time for the «year of grace» of Melchizedek, and of his armies, the nation of the holy ones of God, of the rule of judgment, as is written about him in the songs of David…” Here we see that Melchizedek is almost an angelic or a Messianic figure of sorts who will battle the forces of evil. The verses I provide below will further substantiate this understanding of Melchizedek. 11Q13 Col. II: 13 13: “But, Melchizedek will carry out the vengeance of God’s judgments, and on that day he will free them from the hand of Belial and from the hand of all the spirits of his lot.” This verse is clear about the role he has in the war against the forces of Belial. This is a spiritual war that is to take place and Melchizedek is the spiritual force that will be at the forefront of the battle. 11Q13 Col. II: 25 25: “… Melchizedek, who will free them from the hand of Belial…” As you can see, the role of Melchizedek is entirely different in the Dead Sea Scrolls than his role in the Old Testament. In the Old Testament, he is a King and Priest. Here we find he has a much more important role as a spiritual entity and savior of the ones who follow the light. He is very reminiscent of the Angel Michael when you think about it and, perhaps, Jesus. There are a few more mentions of Melchizedek in the Dead Sea Scrolls, they all portray him in a similar light. As you can see, his role changes as time progresses. This same thing is true for Belial, his arch

enemy. I discuss this in my book “Belial–A History.” Let us move on to the next set of texts.

Melchizedek in the Apocrypha As with many of the mysterious figures in the Bible, an apocryphal tradition has formed around Melchizedek. Since he is a Priestly figure, certain Jewish groups with Priestly ambitions and traditions latched on to him. They were in dire need of acceptance, and so they formed a tradition around him that would allow them to use him as a legitimizing force for their own Priestly orders. The apocryphal text that features Melchizedek is the second (Slavonic) Book of Enoch. This part of the book of Enoch was written in the First-Century A.D. In this text, he was mentioned towards the end of the text, and awkwardly so. Almost as if he was thrust in there haphazardly. Similar to how he was added in the book of Genesis. This led many scholars to ignore it. However, it is a very important part of the OVERALL narrative of the text. Starting from chapter 71, we find a man named Nir, a Priest. He is the brother of the biblical Noah. Nir’s wife, Sopanim was sterile and could not have children. It appears, based on the text that she was too old to have them. Suddenly, she became pregnant. Since he did not have intercourse with her, it is a miraculous conception. Of course, it was not seen as such by her husband. Nir was very ashamed and admonished Sopanim for bringing shame to the family. Nir was so enraged that he threatened Sopanim with violence. Suddenly, as she begged her husband to acknowledge her innocence, she died. Nir was very distraught and filled with remorse. He thought that his words may have caused her death. Alas, the angel Gabriel comes down to Nir and says, "Do not think that your wife Sopanim has died because of your error, but this child, which is to be born of her is a righteous fruit, and one whom I shall receive into paradise, so that you will not be the father of a gift of God." A few moments later, despite her death, she gives birth to a child. Noah and Nir looked upon this child in awe for he had the “badge of the Priesthood” on his chest. Noah says to Nir "Behold, God is renewing the Priesthood from blood related to us, just as He pleases." When they cleaned him up, they looked at him again and gave him the name Melchizedek. The text then goes into how sinful the current generation is and how Melchizedek must be protected from them. Noah and Nir knew he was special. The text says, “ He will not perish along with those who must perish. As I have revealed it, Melchizedek will be My Priest to all holy Priests, I will sanctify him, and I will establish him so that he will be the head of the Priests of the future."

Since the generation at that time was so corrupt it was only a matter of time before the great flood would occur. Melchizedek, in his holiness was not to witness this event. It states, “ And Gabriel took the child, Melchizedek on the same night on his wings, and he placed him in the paradise of Eden.” After that point, the text goes into the construction of the ark. If this story is to be believed, it would make Melchizedek, Abraham’s very distant relative. As you can see, this miraculous birth and his predestined future as being the highest of all Priests was established. His Priesthood is the first of its kind in the Hebrew lineage and supersedes that of Aaron’s that would come later. This is the reason David was of the order of the Priesthood of Melchizedek. It was apparently the highest rank you could achieve within the religious structure. The Enoch verses above came from: The Birth of Melchizedek From the Book of the Secrets of Enoch (Translated from the Slavonic), by W.R. Morfill and R.H. Charles

Melchizedek in the New Testament In the previous chapter, we see Melchizedek has become a kind of Christ figure. Although he was not born of a virgin, he was still miraculously conceived. As we see in many texts, miraculous births are always a portend of a divine destiny for the newborn. In the New Testament, we see that Jesus and Melchizedek start to intertwine. I will not mention every instance of Melchizedek, just a few I think you will be interested in. All mention of Melchizedek in the New Testament can be found in the book of Hebrews which I will present shortly. If you recall earlier in the book, we read a passage from the book of Psalms that showed that David was of the order of Melchizedek. In biblical tradition, it is said that the Messiah will come from the line of David. Jesus, according to the New Testament is from the line of David and thus, the Messiah. Let us see what it says about the Priestly aspect of this line and whether Jesus is a member of this order. Hebrews 5: 6-10: “In the same way, Christ did not take on himself the glory of becoming a high Priest. But God said to him, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father.” And he says in another place, “You are a Priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high Priest in the order of Melchizedek.” As you can see, Jesus has inherited the Priestly dynasty. We have further and more direct confirmation of this in Hebrews Chapter 7: 11-28 “ “If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical Priesthood—and indeed the law given to the people established that Priesthood—why was there still need for another Priest to come, one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? For when the Priesthood is changed, the law must be changed also. He of whom these things are said belonged to a different tribe, and no one from that tribe has ever served at the altar. For it is clear that our Lord descended from Judah, and in regard to that tribe Moses said nothing about Priests. And what we have said is even more clear if another Priest like Melchizedek appears, one who has become a Priest not on the basis of a regulation as to his ancestry but on the basis of the power of an indestructible life. For it is declared:

“You are a Priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God. And it was not without an oath! Others became priests without any oath, but he became a Priest with an oath when God said to him: “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: ‘You are a Priest forever.’ Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantor of a better covenant. Now there have been many of those Priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. Therefore, he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high Priest truly meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Unlike the other high Priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. For the law appoints as high Priests men in all their weakness; but the oath which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.” That is quite a condemnation of the Aaronic Priesthood. It is clear, as I stated earlier that the order of Melchizedek was a kind of shadow priesthood. Abraham was blessed by Melchizedek himself and David, and his lineage were blessed with it. To be clear, this is not a familial priesthood, but one bestowed upon a person and a family. They need not be born a Priest of the order of Melchizedek to become one, whereas the Aaronic priesthood does require birth into the order. In fact, this still applies today. Do you know anyone with the last name Cohen or Kohen? This last name indicates that their ancestors supposedly can trace their lineage back to the priestly days of the Old Testament. Cohen/Kohen means priest. I have a cousin who married into my Israeli side of the family, and his last name is Cohen. He is not allowed to enter cemeteries because priests are not allowed to do so in fear of encountering a dead body (Leviticus 10:6, Leviticus 21: 1-5, Ezekiel 44:20 and Ezekiel 44:25). This will “defile” him. This only applies to the dead that are not related to him. To this day, Orthodox

Jewish cemeteries create a separate designated burial ground for people of the Cohenic lineage. It is quite a distance away from the public burial sites. This separate location allows his family to visit the grave without being defiled by the dead of those who are not of the Cohenic lineage. This seems odd to us, but this is taken very seriously in certain Jewish communities. Fortunately for us, we do not need to be born into it to be of the order of Melchizedek, we need only to be righteous, dedicated to God and pure… No easy task.

Melchizedek in the Gnostic Texts

In the Gnostic texts that were found at Nag Hammadi, we find many interesting books. They are Christian in nature but differ widely from the accepted New Testament canon. In some instances, they contain ideas that would be downright heretical when compared to what has been accepted as Gospel truth. I love the Gnostic texts because they contain some deeper truths and mysteries that truly give a deeper understanding of the nature of what we call “Christ." The texts also cover more mystical and universal aspects regarding how existence came to be. It does so in dizzying detail and in often impenetrable language. The only books in the canon I can think of that have some Gnostic undertones is the Gospel of John and elements of the book of Revelations. I highly suggest you read the Gnostic texts, they are fascinating. Back to Melchizedek. He was so revered that he has his own tractate among the cache of documents found at Nag Hammadi. The date of the final composition of the text is in question, but most scholars believe it took its final form around the Third- century A.D. The text is written in a form of Coptic called Sahidi. Unfortunately, the text is badly damaged. Roughly 50% of its original content is present. From what is legible, only 17 lines out of 745 are fully intact. The text itself is an apocalypse that contains messages that were given to Melchizedek via spiritual and heavenly entities. I guess we can call it the Apocalypse of Melchizedek. It, like most of the Gnostic texts is Christian and focuses on Jesus. In this one, it focuses on Melchizedek and Jesus and their interaction and relation to one another. In this text, there is much emphasis on the divinity of Christ and the punishments that await those who do not believe. Throughout this, he maintains his role as a High Priest. However, as the text progresses, Melchizedek becomes equated with Jesus himself and suffers the same fate on the cross but also the same victory in the resurrection. He is Jesus. This notion was not widespread, but there were many followers who believed this, mostly in Egypt. There are a few points I would like to mention regarding this text I find interesting. Melchizedek uses several names when speaking of and to heavenly beings. Names such as Barbelo, Daveithe, Eleleth, Harmozel, Oroiael, etc. These names can also be found in other Gnostic texts such as The Apocryphon of John. Another interesting thing is that throughout the text, all known ideas about him are intact. Melchizedek is still the High Priest of the Jewish understanding but also Christ himself as well. This is in alignment with the New Testament as we have seen in a previous chapter.

Since the text is badly damaged, I did not provide it here. However, I do suggest you take a look at it. You can find the best translation yet in “Melchizedek (IX, 1). The Nag Hammadi Library in English by Birger A. Pearson. Let us move on.

Melchizedek in the Rabbinic Writings

It is in the Jewish Rabbinic traditions that we see another instance of Melchizedek being associated with another person. In the Gnostic traditions, he is Jesus, in Judaic tradition, he is associated with Noah’s son Shem. We find this reference in a few different Jewish texts. In this chapter, I will reference the Targumim, these are Aramaic translations of the Torah that also add clarity when needed. I will also reference a Talmudic text. The Talmud offers elucidation of the Torah and various other holy scriptures of the Old Testament canon. I won’t be going into the history of these various texts. If you would like to learn more about the Talmud, please reference my book “The Talmud: An Occultist Introduction”. Let us start with the Targumim. In Targum Pseudo-Jonathan, it translates Genesis 14: 18 as “ And the righteous king – he is Shem, the son of Noah – the king of Jerusalem, came out to meet Abram, and he brought out to him bread and wine; and at that time he was ministering before God Most High.” Let us contrast that with the Hebrew version we discussed earlier. Genesis 14:18 “Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High…” As you can see, the Targum associates Melchizedek with Shem, Noah’s son. This is quite a departure from the verse in the Hebrew version of the Bible that does not ascribe any genealogy to Melchizedek. Let us now look at another Targum, Targum Neofiti: Genesis 14:18 “And Melchizedek, the king of Jerusalem — he is Shem the Great — brought out bread and wine, for he was a Priest ministering in the high Priesthood before God Most High.” Here we have another reference to Shem as being Melchizedek.

Why would the Targumin translate this verse differently from the original Hebrew? The reason for this is that during the Rabbinic period, most Jews didn’t understand or speak Hebrew fluently, but they spoke and read Aramaic, and thus the Targumim supplied the translations. In fact, Targum literally means translation. The Targumin also had another function, and that was to make sense of the verses. This was not the original intent of the texts. They are supposedly to provide a clear translation ONLY. Since Melchizedek was such an ambiguous character, they had to add explanation. Let us now move to the Talmud. In the Babylonian Talmud, Nedarim 32B it states, “ Said R. Zechariah in the name of R. Ishmael, “The Holy One, blessed be He, wanted to bring forth the Priesthood through Shem.”

These are but three instances in Rabbinic literature. There are several more bolstering the idea that Shem was Melchizedek. Let us now look a bit deeper into why they chose Shem to be Melchizedek. According to Jewish tradition, Shem was the most righteous of the three sons of Noah. It is for this reason he is always mentioned first, despite being the youngest of the three sons. The two other brothers are Ham and Japheth. The tradition says that Shem was born circumcised, which already signified his election. Another reason why Shem has been singled out for greatness is because when Noah was passed out drunk and sprawled out half naked, it was Shem who covered him (Genesis 9:23). Japheth is also mentioned in this verse, but he doesn’t get as much of the credit. According to the Rabbis, it was Shem, who came up with the idea first. Of course, that is not indicated in the Bible. One of the reasons they say this is because the verse starts with the name Shem “And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.” This line of reasoning is questionable, but that is how Rabbinic interpretations often unfold. The Rabbis go on to say that Shem was the founder of the first school in which the Torah was taught. This, of course, could not be possible since the Torah wasn’t even written yet, nor was Moses alive to receive it. However, when reading Jewish texts, you will find caveats to almost anything that doesn’t appear to make sense. In Jewish legend, there is an idea that the Torah itself has always existed in some ethereal form and therefore Shem was able to teach it, AND that one of

these students was none other than Jacob, the patriarch himself. Shem was so favored that according to the Rabbis, he was given dominion over thirty-three islands, twenty-six countries, twenty-six out of the seventy-two languages and six scripts out of sixteen. These scripts include Chaldean, Egyptian, Assyrian, Libyan, Gutazaki (not sure what that is but some suggest perhaps it is Gujarati which would be a bit odd, but interesting) and, of course, Hebrew, the script that the Torah is written in. (Midrash. Ha-Gadol on Genesis. x. 32, col. 182). As you can see, Shem was considered to be extremely special, and it is for this reason they associated him with the holiest person at the time, Melchizedek. Is Shem really Melchizedek? I don’t know. In my opinion, they simply didn’t know how to explain Melchizedek, so they assigned him an identity they could easily discern and explain. In either case, we can’t know for sure.

Melchizedek in Early Church Writings Very similar to the Judaic groups, the earliest of Christians were fascinated with Melchizedek because of his mysteriousness. Most of the early church fathers took the views of either the Judaic tradition or the tradition in the book of Hebrews as it pertained to Melchizedek. A few took on variations of both. Clement of Alexandria, a Christian theologian (150-215 A.D.) was the first to render the Eucharistic readings of Bread and Wine in connection with Melchizedek, a custom that remains intact in the Catholic Mass of today. (Stromata 4.25). Hippolytus considered Melchizedek to be a Canaanite King and compared him to John the Baptist. (Pearson, “Melchizedek,” 187). In the Homilies on Genesis, 35.16, John Chrysostom, the Archbishop of Constantinople (349— 407 A.D.) compared Melchizedek with Jesus. Origen an early Church Father believed the same. (Pearson, “Melchizedek,” 187). There was only one church father from what I can see who believed that Shem was Melchizedek. That was Ephrem the Syrian (Commentary on Genesis, 11.2). This is most likely due to his country of origin. He was of Semitic origin and having Melchizedek be Shem himself was very appealing. As an aside, although we, in modern times use the term Semitic to indicate someone of the Jewish faith, its true meaning is anyone with a Middle Eastern background who came forth from the line of Shem. Shem is the SEM in the word Semitic. As with most mysterious characters in the bible, heresies would often form around their personas. In the Third-century, a group called the Melchizedekians formed. This was an early Christian movement that had a very Anti-Christian idea; they made Melchizedek greater than Jesus. They believed that Melchizedek was a mediator and intercessor to the angels and that Jesus was merely a mediator and intercessor to humans. This, of course, brought quite a bit of condemnation from the early church fathers. You can find such refutations and condemnation in Hippolytus (Refutation of All Heresies 7.35–36), Pseudo-Tertullian (Against All Heresies 28), and Epiphanius of Salamis (Panarion 55.8). Other Melchizedekian cults formed as well. A man by the name of Hierakas taught that Melchizedek was the holy spirit itself. Epiphanius (Panarion 67.1). A few more heresies surrounding Melchizedek popped up but were not as significant as those above. As you can see, the early church fathers and the early Church in general had their own struggles with understanding Melchizedek and his true identity.

Melchizedek According to Josephus and Philo In this chapter I will discuss Melchizedek as he is portrayed by two Jewish historians of the firstcentury A.D. They are Josephus and Philo. I will not go into their personal histories; there are many texts that discuss them. I will focus solely on their understanding of Melchizedek. I will say that they are very prominent and until this day we rely on their accounts to better understand the first-century in Judea and beyond. They may embellish at times, but overall, they are valuable resources. I find myself referencing them quite often in my academic pursuits outside of the Occult. Let us start with Josephus. Josephus on Melchizedek Josephus was the only Jewish scholar on record that I can tell who entertained the notion that Melchizedek was a Canaanite King; a righteous one no doubt. In The Jewish War VI 438 and Jewish Antiquities I 179-181 he refers to him as the ‘righteous King’. He never actually mentions him by name, but we know that this is Melchizedek because he does refer to Genesis 14: 18-20. Josephus adds a bit to the story and claims that Melchizedek was the FIRST person to build the Temple in Jerusalem and, of course, serve as its first priest. I am not sure where he derived this information from. He either made it up, or there was a legend about this. I have not found anything indicating he built the Temple in the Jewish literature. If this is true, it will add an interesting twist to the Jewish story and would be incredibly problematic. A Non-Hebrew building the first temple would be quite a radical idea. It would also contradict the notion that King Solomon was the builder of the First Temple. On a more practical level, the timing would be way off. The temple was built in the 10th century B.C. Melchizedek was a good 800-900 years in the past. It sounds rather apocryphal to me. Then again, Melchizedek is known to be one with supernatural abilities. Perhaps he reincarnated? Who knows? Philo on Melchizedek Like Josephus, Philo discusses Melchizedek and adds his own embellishments, OR perhaps he is sourcing an unknown apocryphal text. In his De Abrahamo. 235, he embellishes and retells Genesis 14: 18-20. In his version, Melchizedek goes all out for Abraham and his army, heaping praise on them and providing all sorts of gifts of food and drink. It almost sounds like Melchizedek threw a party for Abraham. In De Congressu Eruditionis Gratia 99, Melchizedek is described as a person who learned and taught the Priesthood. No one taught him this, he was self-taught since no Priestly order existed

before him. The text goes on to say that the Melchizedek Priesthood is not the cornerstone of the Aaronic Priesthood. He went out of his way to make that distinction. We have already gleaned this from our earlier discussion. Again, it appears that the Melchizedek Priesthood is a kind of parallel priesthood for the spiritual elite as I suspected from the beginning. In Legum Allegoriarum III 79–82, we find an interesting description of Melchizedek. Philo mentions that Melchizedek is honored by God despite not having done anything to deserve it. He is portrayed as an actual person, but also the embodiment of a great truth. To Philo, he is a man and, in many ways, a myth and an archetype. In both Josephus and Philo, we see Melchizedek portrayed as an actual historical person who lived in history. Who he was, and exactly what his overall purpose is still not clear. He remains a mystery. This chapter concludes our historical analysis of Melchizedek, let us move on to the meditations.

Introduction to the Meditations We have come to the meditation portion of this text. I will be incorporating Kabbalistic/Qabbalistic ideas into these meditations. What is Kabbalah? Kabbalah at it is core is the Jewish Mystical tradition. The Kabbalah is not just a font of mystical and spiritual knowledge, it has answers to the most elusive of spiritual inquiries such as to why we are here, and what we can do to live a better and more attuned life. It answers questions about the nature of divinity as it relates to itself and to the universe. The Kabbalah contains various tools that can truly transform your life in ways that you may not find in other texts. Learning and working with Kabbalah can convey spiritual and occult powers as well. It is for this reason nearly all occult systems reference some form of Kabbalistic knowledge. This is not coincidental. It is also a wonderful area of study for people who may not have a spiritual bent. It represents, to the secular crowd, an historical timeline of how numinous ideas form in a religion. It is as much spiritual as it is sociological and psychological. Essentially, the study of Kabbalah can appeal to everyone of every stripe. The Kabbalah also contains many mystical texts that contain magick and meditations that cannot be found anywhere else. The difference between K/Q/C: Kabbalah with a K is Kabbalah in the Jewish mystical tradition and originates from Judaism and maintains its “Jewishness” for lack of a better term. It is the foundation of the other two systems that I will explain below. With the K version of the meditation I present here, we will be focusing on the name Melchizedek and merging it with the Hebrew name of God that he used in the Bible. This kind of meditation Is called a Yichud or “unification”. It is very powerful and is very intense. Qabbalah with a Q has a foundation in the K version but universalizes the concepts and becomes more syncretic. It adds in Hermetic ideas, Tarot cards and the like. In this meditation we will be using the Tarot. Cabala with C too, has its foundation in the K version, but Christianizes many of the themes. Here you will find otherwise Jewish concepts containing Christian themes. I have not included a Cabala with a C meditation in this text since I have not personally preformed a Cabala with C meditation regarding Melchizedek. I only write upon what I have personal experience with.

The two meditations I provide in this text are rather visual in nature, so I am going to give you access to two videos that you can watch at your own leisure. I will illustrate them here as well as best as I can, but I highly recommend you watch the videos at . You will have the option to download these videos to your PC for viewing as well. Let us proceed.

Meditation 1 – Merging Melchizedek and God Most High in Your Mind and Soul The great Kabbalist and sage Rabbi Isaac Luria most known as the ARI, taught that meditation was of vital importance to the soul. One could pray and do good deeds day in and day out, but it is only in meditation that we truly get close to our source and our essence. Although not the creator of this type of meditation I will discuss here, he did use it quite a bit and revolutionized it in many ways. In fact, it was the core of his practice. The method involves something called Yichudim. The name Yichud means to unify. This method requires that certain holy names of God and or that of angel’s merge to form a single name. As simple as it may sound, it is quite powerful. The goal of this kind of meditation is to bring the two powers together. The visualization of the letters merging causes certain changes in the mind and soul. Aside from the names being powerful, the Hebrew letters that compose the names are of the utmost importance. It is truly the Hebrew letters that convey the power. In this meditation we will merge the name Melchizedek with the name of God he used, El-Elyon in Hebrew. The purpose of this meditation is to tap into the sanctity and holiness of Melchizedek, and to open up the gates of intuition to see the divine as he saw it. This is a visual process. I will display the names here. However, I suggest watching the video here: On that page you will find the two meditations I guide you through in this book. Let us begin this meditation. Make sure you are seated comfortably. You want to be as comfortable as possible. To begin, close your eyes and slowly Inhale and exhale deeply for five breaths. Do not rush it, relax into this process. Once relaxed, repeat these words “Melchizedek, you are the highest priest of the most high and holy God, please bless me and my abode as I enter this sacred inner space with you. Amen” Open your eyes, in a moment you will see each Hebrew letter of his name appear, one after the other. Once the name Melchizedek is complete. Just gaze at it, observe the shapes of the letters, the vowel marks, the intensity of the letters. Do this until you hear the sound of a bell.

‫ַמְלִכּי ֶצ ֶדק‬

Now close your eyes once again, let the afterimage play around in your mind until you hear the sound of the bell. Open your eyes, in a moment you will see each Hebrew letter of God’s name appear, one after the other. Once the name El-Elyon is complete. Just gaze at it, observe the shapes of the letters, the vowel marks, the intensity of the letters. Do this until you hear the sound of a bell.

‫ֶאל ֶעִליוֹן‬ Now close your eyes once again, let the afterimage play around in your mind until you hear the sound of the bell. Now open your eyes, in a moment you will see the name of Melchizedek and El-Elyon combine. Let your mind focus on this process as the names unfold. Once they are complete, gaze at the name. Let it fill your entire visual field. Sit with this for a moment.

‫ֶאַמלְלֶעִכִּלייֶצוֹ ֶדןק‬ Now repeat these words as you gaze at the name. “Melchizedek, high priest of El-Elyon open my eyes so I may see as you see, open my ears so I may hear as you hear, open my heart as your heart. Let me experience the divine as you do. In this moment, I am you and you are me, open me up. Amen” Keep your eye on the name until it dissolves from your sight. Once dissolved, take a deep breath and reorient yourself to your surroundings. Thus concludes this meditation. I am confident that you will feel a shift after this meditation. It is quite powerful. Let us move on to the next.

Meditation 2 – The Melchizedek Tarot Meditation As with the previous meditation, this will be visual. Please go to, . I will also present the meditation here as well for your reference as best as I can. In this meditation we will be working with a Tarot card, more specifically with the Hierophant card. This card is part of the Major Arcana in pretty much all Tarot decks. It exemplifies everything that Melchizedek is.

He is the conduit between the esoteric and the mundane; between God and Man. This, after all, is the main task of the High Priest, to bring the divine essence down to those who wish to share in its splendor. The Hierophant is a spiritual teacher. He is a figure who lives by intuition alone. He knows no limitation or fear because he is the embodiment of faith. His wisdom is complete. Notice that he stands between two pillars. These pillars represent, in the K/Qabbalah, the pillars of the tree of life.

The right side personifies the divine powers of mercy, the left side represents divine severity and judgement. He, the Hierophant stands in the middle for he is the Middle pillar. He wears a crown, this corresponds to the first sephira of the tree which literally means crown, Keter. His feet stand firmly in Malchut, the sefira that represents the earth and the material kingdom. Through him all divine energy flows in complete harmony. The right and left pillars are within him. Being the Middle pillar, he conveys the voice of God. In the Kabbalah, the term for this voice is Bat Kol. The term means “Daughter of the voice.” This is the very voice of God. Bat Kol was that still small voice that Elijah heard on the mountain. Bat Kol was the still small voice Job heard when in the presence of his God. In this meditation, we will ask for intuition. If you have a difficult decision to make or would just like to enhance your intuitive abilities, this meditation will help. It will open the doors of perception. Melchizedek will be our High Priest before the divine presence. He will help us hear the Bat Kol. Let us begin this meditation Place in front of you the Hierophant card. You can place it on a table or altar. It does not matter. Just please make sure it is not surrounded by clutter; you want to be able to focus on the card without distractions. If your card looks different than the one in this meditation that is fine, as long as it is the Hierophant card or equivalent. Say the prayer to the spiritual guardians of the Tarot. You may use your wording, this is just an example that I use. “Hear me Oh Great Guardians of the Tarot, harness me the power of this card, the card of

hidden and mysterious wisdom. Hear me so that I may be endowed with the great mysteries of the universe. So Mote it me.” Think now of your need for guidance and intuition. It can be regarding a particular issue or for general intuition. Sit with this for a bit until you hear a bell. Now pick up the card and look at it intently. Don’t judge it, don’t try to decipher any of its symbolism. Just look at it until it takes up your entire field of vision. Do this until you hear the bell.

Now say the following words to Melchizedek: Melchizedek, High Priest of the Most High God, El-Elyon I ask that you minister unto me, Make your holy ways known to me. Show me the way in which I should walk along my path. Guide me in your righteousness and teach me. Bless me as you have blessed Abraham, Bless me in the name of El-Elyon; I await your holy guidance. So Be It! Now close your eyes and picture yourself as seated before the Hierophant or if Melchizedek has shown himself in your mind’s eye, sit before him. Sit and visualize this until you hear the bell. When you are ready, ask him what you may. Let him show you the answer. It could be in words or symbols or even sounds. Sit and listen until you hear the bell. When you are ready, thank Melchizedek and say, “May El-Elyon bless you.” Now thank the Guardians of the Tarot and release them. A Simple ‘thank you’ will suffice. Slowly open your eyes and get reacclimated to your surroundings. If you received any insight, please make an effort to record it now on paper or on a device. Again, it could be an image, a sound or words. Keep note of it all. Thus concludes this meditation. You may perform this as many times as you like. You can, of course, prolong it as well.

Conclusion There you have it my friends, Melchizedek Unmasked. Unfortunately, as you can see there is not a whole lot of information. What information there is can shed light on to what he symbolizes. This, of course, cannot truly shed light on whether such a figure truly existed or not, that mystery still remains. What I think is important to glean from this is that he may be of more use as a personal archetype that we can awaken in ourselves. We are all Melchizedek in our own way before our patron spirits. One thing I do know is that the meditations I provided in this book will bring you closer to the energy that is Melchizedek. Until next time.

About Baal Kadmon Baal Kadmon is an Author, Occultist, and Meditation teacher based out of New York City. In addition to the Occult, he is a Scholar of Religion Philosopher, and Historian specializing in Ancient History, Late Antiquity and Medieval History. He has studied and speaks Israeli Hebrew, Classical Hebrew, Ugaritic language, Arabic, Judeo-Aramaic, Syriac (language), Ancient Greek and Classical Latin. Baal first discovered his occult calling when he was very young. It was only in his teens, when on a trip to the Middle East that he heeded the call. Several teachers and many decades later he felt ready to share what he had learned. His teachings are unconventional to say the least. In addition to rituals, he includes in depth history in almost all the books he writes. He shatters the beloved and idolatrously held notions most occultists hold dear. His pared-down approach to Magick and Meditation is refreshing and is very much needed in a field that is mired by self-important magicians and teachers who place more importance on pomp and circumstance, than on Magick and Meditation. What you learn from Baal is straight-forward, with no frills. There is no need to complicate things. Follow Him on Facebook and other Social Media Sites:
