  1. Levi in Body of Ancestor?

    I was reading in the book of Hebrews today and came upon Hebrews 7:9
    "One might even say that Levi, who collects the tenth, paid the tenth through Abraham, because when Melchizedek met Abraham, Levi was still in the body of his ancestor." I don't know who Levi was, but he evidently was paying Abraham's tenth to Melchizedek. What does it mean "he was still in the body of his ancestor?"
  2. Levi is the tribe the priesthood that God chose to serve read the tribes in old testament Jesus descended from the tribe of Judah He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah and watch out when He Roars and He will Jesus is Lord
  3. Hey SS. "he was still in the body of his ancestor?" It means Levi wasn't even though of yet. LOL He was not born yet.
    And as WS said Levi became the tribe of priests for the Jews. That is after he got born. LOL :dance::dance::dance::dance:
  4. Well. . . duh! Of course. It's the only explanation. My excuse . . . I'm blond! :p And I was expecting some long story about this Levi that would be a new discovery. Oh well.
  5. Huh? You mean we don't get to say more and make you blush? I'm disappointed. :( LOL
  6. Nothing new under the sun Jesus is LOrd
