- There are three main “offices” spoken of in the Old Testament—prophet, priest, and king.
- Jesus as the Messiah fulfills all three of these offices. And! He fulfills them in perfection and at the same time! What is unique to Jesus the Messiah is that He is prophet the message, He is priest and the sacrifice, king and the law. All of these in perfection!
- In the O.T. the three offices of prophet, priest, and king were distinct from each other. No king was a priest, no prophet was a king etc. There would have been no overlap. None of these could perform the role of the order and none of them preformed their role perfectly.
- However, Jesus Christ perfectly filled these three roles and did so at one time: He is the Prophet, Priest, and King. He was and is all of them to us.
We know that humanity has had rulers and kings since the earliest records of recorded history. Some were good while others were self-serving rulers. Join us this Sunday to see how Jesus was and is the greatest King of all times!
