The primary thing that I am seeing is that God is to be blessed because he predestined us.

We are predestined to obtain an inheritance.

Paul takes the opportunity to elaborate on the authority of Christ.

Though the grace that we have been given is not dependent upon our works, we are created for good works.
Ephesians 2:1-10
It seems to me that this entire passage is based upon unity in Christ.
Ephesians 2:11-22
This is a very peculiar paragraph of Ephesians.

This is a very peculiar paragraph of Ephesians.

I believe that the central idea of this text is the emphasis on the one true  gospel.

This entire passage is essentially an exposition of Psalm 95:7-11.

This was a very tricky passage for me to arc.
Hebrews 4:14-5:10
Ok, this is far and away the most difficult arc that I have ever done.
Hebrews 5:11-6:12
This passage gives us insight into the faithfulness of God and the hope that we have in the priestly character of Christ Jesus.
Hebrews 6:13-20
The author is relentless in showing that Jesus is superior to Levi.
Hebrews 7:11-28
The action of Christ is, once again, juxtaposed with the action of the high priest of the Levitical line.

Seems to give narrative (vs. 1; vs. 5-6) and then adds commentary to the narrative explaining what it means. The fact that Melchizedek has do priestly line makes him a type of Christ, who also has no priestly line. -->But what does "beginning of days nor end of life" mean? Sets the primary alternative between Melchizedek and Levi. -->The inferior is blessed by the superior. Levi was blessed by Melchizedek. Therefore, from these points, I deduce that the primary goal of this passage is, firstly to set Melchizedek up as a type of Christ (7:3) and then, secondly, to show that Melchizedek is a priest that is superior (greater than) the levitical priestly line. This second point, when applied to Christ, shows that Christ is greater than the levitical priestly line.

Hebrews 7:1-10
NT
esv
For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Most High God, met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings
and blessed him,
and to him Abraham apportioned a tenth part of everything.
He is first, by translation of his name, king of righteousness, and then he is also king of Salem, that is, king of peace.
He is without father or mother or genealogy,
having neither beginning of days nor end of life,
ideaexplanation
but resembling the Son of God
negativepositive
he continues a priest forever.
actionmanner
progression
See how great this man was to whom Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of the spoils!
And those descendants of Levi who receive the priestly office have a commandment in the law to take tithes from the people, that is, from their brothers,
though these also are descended from Abraham.
concessive
But this man who does not have his descent from them received tithes from Abraham
and blessed him who had the promises.
actionresult
alternative
It is beyond dispute that the inferior is blessed by the superior.
In the one case tithes are received by mortal men,
but in the other case, by one of whom it is testified that he lives.
One might even say that Levi himself, who receives tithes, paid tithes through Abraham,
for he was still in the loins of his ancestor when Melchizedek met him.
