Advent 2022

This Advent season, join us as we learn of how Jesus makes a place for all as prophet, priest, and king.

  • 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, not 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 performed 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.
