Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Hebrews 7:15

_ _ Another proof that the law, or economy, is changed, namely, forasmuch as Christ is appointed Priest, “not according to the law of a carnal (that is, a mere outward) commandment,” but “according to the power of an indissoluble (so the Greek) life.” The hundred tenth Psalm appoints Him “for ever” (Hebrews 7:17). The Levitical law required a definite carnal descent. In contrast stands “the power”; Christ’s spiritual, inward, living power of overcoming death. Not agreeably to a statute is Christ appointed, but according to an inward living power.

_ _ it — the change of the law or economy, the statement (Hebrews 7:12, Hebrews 7:18).

_ _ far moreGreek, “more abundantly.”

_ _ for that — “seeing that,” literally, “if”; so Romans 5:10.

_ _ after the similitude of Melchisedec — answering to “after the order of Melchisedec” (Hebrews 5:10). The “order” cannot mean a series of priests, for Melchisedec neither received his priesthood from, nor transmitted it to, any other mere man; it must mean “answering to the office of Melchisedec.” Christ’s priesthood is similar to Melchisedec’s in that it is “for ever” (Hebrews 7:16, Hebrews 7:17).

_ _ another — rather as Greek, “a different.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Hebrews 7:11-28.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Hebrews 7:15

And it is still far more evident, that — Both the priesthood and the law are changed, because the priest now raised up is not only of another tribe, but of a quite different order.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Hebrews 7:15

(7) And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

(7) Lest any man object, the priesthood was indeed translated from Levi to Judah. Nonetheless the same still remains, he both considers and explains those words of David "for ever, according to the order of Melchizedek" by which also a different institution of priesthood is understood.
