I find it interesting that the ancient Hebrew historian Josephus calls Melchizedek two different titles.  In his book called the "War of the Jews", he calls him a Canaanite Chief.  Then in his book "The Antiquities of the Jews", he referred to him as Priest.   

The two references in the bible to Melchizedek referred to him as a King of Salem in Genisis 14  then is referred to as a Priest in Psalms 110.

In one other historical writing type of book they note that he thought he was the first coming of the Messiah and that he would return in the future to fulfill his duties.

This is definitely going to be on my read a research list after I finish working on my writing on Esther.

Melchizedek is a type for Jesus and the (Church (body of Christ))

Why....He was the King of Salem and was also a Priest the Abraham had given Tithes to.

The Type of Jesus is that Jesus is a King, He is the High Priest and Prophet.

The Type of Church is  that the Body of Christ (all of them) will become Kings and Priest as written in Revelation.

Other than what Josephus states in His writings, Nothing else is known about Melchizedek.

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
