We first meet Melchizedek in Genesis 14:18-20. In the context Abram was a successful military leader, he had over 300 trained servants in his own house. He was obviously a military leader and had been to war to rescue his nephew Lot. On his return from the battle, he is met by this mythical person [or not so mythical as we are about to see] called Melchizedek, who is called 'king of Salem', and 'Priest of God Most High', that is El Elyon. He was a king and a priest! Melchizedek offers Abram bread and wine. This is the first mention of bread and wine in the Scripture. This priest Melchizedek blessed Abram, encouraged him, and in response Abram gave to this priest a tithe of what he had received in the war.
When Abram was called to go into the land, he built an altar (Gen.12:8). This is usually a priestly ministry. This was a place where he could meet with God. In Genesis 22:6-14 we read of the altar that Abraham built to offer up his son Isaac. Finally, God Himself provided the ram for the sacrifice, but Abraham had to be willing to sacrifice his only son on the altar. Abraham was a great military leader as seen in "the defeat of Chadorlaomer and the kings that were with him" (Gen.14:17), but he is also called to this priestly ministry of building an altar for sacrifice.
