Prophet, Priest and King were the three major, distinct offices among the people of Israel. The Prophet would be the one who speaks God’s words to the people. The Priest offered sacrifices/prayers to God as a representative of the people to God. The King ruled over the people as God’s governing hand, such as King David.
Christ fulfills all three of these offices and over this series we will be discussing exactly how He accomplishes each one. Today we want to zone in on his role/office of Prophet.
