7:1-10 serve to explain the significance of Jesus being called a priest after the order of Melchizedek at the close of ch. 6. The author begins by referencing Gen. 14:18-20 in vv. 1-2. He then moves to intepreting the details of the Genesis text in v. 3 (name, lack of genealogy), and then he calls readers to see the implications of this remarkable passage. Melchizedek is greater than the patriarch Abraham (receiving tithes and doing the blessing), and given his age he is also greaeter than the Levitical priests, who had not even been born yet. This whole argument is preparing readers to grasp the significance of Jesus' priesthood after the order of Melchizedek in vv. 11-28.
