All great prophets received by laying on of hands, hence the term that it gets only they may receive from hand to hand sorting in the Holy Priesthood according to the order established by the word of God and these initiates should not necessarily be Hebrews, there is a profuse information about the lives of many of these men who had nothing to do with the authorized tribe of the Levites, only holders of the priesthood established by Moses. Jim Crane addresses the importance of the matter here. The text that I am going to cite them is a clear exponent of the terminology used by initiates in the Kabbalah, of the reading signals embedded in the text by the author, are hidden Kabbalistic principles of enormous significance. Because this Melchizedek, King of Salem, priest of the most high God, who came out to greet Abraham returning from the defeat of the Kings, and blessed you, who also Abraham gave tithes of all; whose name first means King of righteousness, and also King of Salem, that is, King of peace; Without father, without mother, without Genealogy; having neither beginning of days, nor end of life, but made like unto the son of God, remains a priest forever. Behold, then, how big was this, to whom even the Patriarch Abraham gave tithes of the loot. Who among the sons of Levi receive the priesthood, certainly have commandment to take tithes according to law, i.e. his brothers, of the people although they have also come out of the loins of Abraham. But one whose genealogy is not counted among them, took tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
And without discussion, the child is blessed by the greater. And here certainly mortal men; receive tithes but there, one of who bears witness that you live. And so to speak, in Abraham paid tithe also Levi, who receives tithes; because it was still in the loins of his father when Melchizedek came out to meet. If, therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law) would need yet of another priest, after the order of Melchizedek, to be lifted and that it was not called after the order of Aaron? Because the priesthood, is necessary that has also changed change in law; and the one who said is this, is from another tribe, from which no one served at the altar.
