Jesus - Prophet, Priest and King

God’s people under the old covenant were assigned men to serve them in mediating roles of prophet, priest, and king, all three being fulfilled by separate, fallen individuals. But now all three roles are fulfilled in the person of Jesus the Messiah, our all-sufficient Savior. Today we who believe in this Messiah are called to learn from him as our prophet, trust him as our priest, and obey him as our king, for he is the center of our lives and the focal point of authentic Christianity.
