A couple questions
Yeah the simple way to look at it is that if he has no beginning nor end of days, he can be none other than God. Jesus was a man too, yet God. Surely, God can appear to us in manly form. Jesus was even more special, because He was actually BORN as a man.

I might have a wrong idea of Melchizedek, but I find it a bit suspicious, that so little is known of him, no parents, no age etc... Surely his kingdom would have such records, and the Bible says something like that they don't exist? Why? <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> I think the Peshitta is saying (idiomatically) that he had no parents and no neginning or end. If this is true, he MUST be God. We'll need an expert opinion on this figurative speech.

Unfortunately, (I don't want to cause trouble here, just mentioning a possibility) a lot of Aramaic experts are from the COE who believe in the trinity... So maybe some bias will be involved. I often use Melchizedek as one of my examples how God can have many manifestations. Otherwise, our trinity would have 4, with Melchizedek, 5 with Burning Bush, 6 with pillar of cloud, etc etc etc. So maybe an atheist Aramaic expert would help? But they wouldn't give a toss anyway right? Such is life! <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: -->
