THE TRUE PRIESTHOOD

From the August 1922 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The first priest mentioned in the Bible was Melchizedek, the king of Salem; and all that the Old Testament records of him is found in four verses, three in Genesis and one in Psalms. He met "Abram the Hebrew" in the valley of Shaveh after the latter's return from his rescue of his nephew Lot from the land of Dan, where he had been held captive by the heathen kings.
