Many Christians understand the Bible teaches that Jesus fulfilled the three Old Testament offices of prophet, priest, and king. Yet few have connected this same idea with the mission of the Church. But if the Church is Christ’s body, would it inherit the same roles? What does it mean for the Church to be rooted both in Christ and in Old Testament Israel?
This three-day conference with Robert Crouse explores how the roles of priest, king, and prophet (in that order), which are fulfilled in Christ, can help us understand what the Church is and what its responsibility is in the world. We’ll look both at the Church as a whole and Christian vocation as priestly, kingly, and prophetic.
