Hebrews 7:16-18 The Passion Translation (TPT)

16 This King-Priest did not arise because of a genealogical right under the law to be a priest, but by the power of an indestructible, resurrection life![a]

17 For it says in the Psalms,

You are like Melchizedek, a King-Priest forever!

18 The old order of priesthood has been set aside as weak and powerless.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Hebrews 7:16 The word indestructible comes from a word that means, “tied together in unity,” that is, “a united life” (or “union with God”). Resurrection life is implied, for the priestly ministry of Jesus began after he was raised from the dead. The Aramaic can be translated “He has life-giving power that has no beginning.” Jesus’ ministry of Prophet, Priest, and King flows from his unlimited life of resurrection power!
  2. Hebrews 7:18 Or “useless.”
