Melchizedek is counted in the Bible, Hebrews 7:3, as one, "Without father or mother or genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, like the Son of God, he remains a priest for all time." Melchizedek lived and taught on earth for 94 years. Urantia Papers 93-98 are devoted to Melchizedek with Papers 96 and 97 treating the Hebrew religion's evolution--the world religion most heavily influenced, at least initiated, by his teachings.
We're deeply engaged in a fascinating study of Melchizedek, the Third Epochal Revelation of God to our world. We've learned that Melchizedek came to earth on an emergency mission to rekindle the light of truth on Urantia. He thoroughly trained his messengers and dispatched them to the four corners of earth from Salem, now Jerusalem. These extraordinary papers examine how his teachings spread and recount the profound effect Melchizedek had on our world. We will continue to follow this with a study of Gautama Siddhartha aka Buddha and the subsequent fostering, teaching, and spreading of a new religion, Buddhism.
UB 94:8.2 Buddhism took origin in a historic person, not in a myth. Gautama’s followers called him Sasta, meaning master or teacher. While he made no superhuman claims for either himself or his teachings, his disciples early began to call him the enlightened one,the Buddha; later on, Sakyamuni Buddha.
94:7.2 ...Siddhartha made a determined but unavailing fight against the growing caste system. There was a lofty sincerity and a unique unselfishness about this young prophet prince that greatly appealed to the men of those days. He detracted from the practice of seeking individual salvation through physical affliction and personal pain. And he exhorted his followers to carry his gospel to all the world.
