Prophet, Priest, and King: The Roles of Christ in the Bible and Our Roles Today
2 in stock
Although early church fathers recognised the different roles of Christ, John Calvin was the first to call attention to His distinct offices of prophet, priest and king. Starting in Genesis, these offices recur time and again throughout the Bible. Viewed alongside Christ's humiliation and exaltation, they give us a fully-rounded understanding of His work, as well as insight into the ongoing work of the church.
In this biblical theology, Richard Belcher explores and defines the basic functions of prophets, priests and kings through an analysis of key Old Testament texts. He then discusses the fulfillment of these offices in Christ and the transformation of these offices for the church, its leaders, and individual believers. Includes study questions.
"Belcher's impressive treatment of these offices in their biblical-theological setting is essential reading in understanding their comprehensive nature. This book deftly combines biblical and pastoral insight that is most welcome in furthering our understanding of Scripture and the person and work of Christ."?
