Evident (κατάδηλον)

N.T.o. Thoroughly evident. Not referring to that which is declared to be πρόδηλον evident in Hebrews 7:14, viz., that Christ sprang out of Judah, but to the general proposition - the unsatisfactory character of the Levitical priesthood.

Similitude (ὁμιότητα)

Better, likeness: answering to made like, Hebrews 7:3, and emphasizing the personal resemblance to Melchisedec.
