Melchizedek

This painting is one of a series of paintings about the HolyEucharist for Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama,. Melchizedek is pictured here meeting with Abraham who has returned from battle. Melchizedek is a type of Christ because he, the King of Salem ( Peace and Justice), offered Abraham bread and wine and received tithes from him, prefiguring the Holy Eucharist. Sts. David and Paul are pictured in the margins because both spoke of Melchizedec in their inspired writings.
