More thoughts on OT genealogy

Remember last week I was interested in who was still alive when? (let's see if I can figure out how to put in the link to last week... I think I did it!!) Well, I have since been informed that there are some Jewish scholars who believe that Shem, Noah's son, was Melchizedek. You may remember Melchizedek was the High Priest of God who went out to meet and bless Abraham after Abraham had rescued Lot, and he is talked about in the New Testament book of Hebrews...

Of course there is no way to know if this is true or not, but what a cool thought. Shem getting to see Abraham, who will receive the covenant of God... Something to look forward to learning about when we get to heaven!
