Hebrews - Trying to get a handle on Melchizedek

While there are still questions to answer about the book as a whole, I have re-focused my energies on Melchizedek.  To that end, I am listening to Genesis 14 and Psalm 110, the two passages in the TaNaKh where he is mentioned.

I also plan on using the wikipedia article as a jumping off point.

Anyone with insights, add your thoughts and questions to the comments.

First: why was Melchizedek there? Seems odd.

I'm thinking some investigation into extra-biblical Jewish stuff might be required for this. Any takers?
