This mystical Biblical figure appears briefly within the Book of Genesis.It was shortly after a battle that Abram (before his name-change to Abraham) had had with a cluster of kings when this priest, Melchizedek, appeared.He presented to Abram some bread and wine and then blessed him.This “King of Salem” then seems to disappear.There are some references to him in Psalm 110 and Hebrews.
