A controversy has arisen with the Jewish priesthood, Jesus is not in the Order of Levi, but comes from the Order of Melchizedek. This presents a serious matter, for Judaism will now be sourced through a new priesthood schema. The Messiah not of the Levites? How could this be? Further, the old priesthood would be swept away by what would amount to Jesxus’ followers, thus changing the whole direction of Judaism. The Levitical priesthood would be broken off. Sadducees, Pharisees, and those who traveled with them, the Qumran legalists, scribes, and lawyers of every kind, would now be minimized or done away with. Essentially, it is they would have to convert. All titles, all status, all monies, and all influence would be suddenly gone.
