Acts 10:38</p> <p>As the Christ, or Messiah (Anointed One), Jesus was anointed with theHoly Spiritto serve in three distinct offices.12Our Saviors OfficesThe LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to Him.Deuteronomy 18:15</p> <p>One office that Jesus has is that ofProphet13ProphetBut the LORD said to me, Do not say, I am too young. You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Jeremiah 1:714ProphetBut the LORD said to me, Do not say, I am too young. You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Jeremiah 1:7</p> <p>The Old Testament prophets who were sent by Godtold people Gods Word15ProphetJesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God.Luke 8:116ProphetJesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God.Luke 8:1</p> <p> While on earth Jesus served as Prophet byspeaking Gods Word17Prophet He who listens to you listens to Me; he who rejects you rejects Me; but he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.Luke 10:1618Prophet He who listens to you listens to Me; he who rejects you rejects Me; but he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me.Luke 10:16</p> <p> From heaven Jesus serves as Prophet byspeaking Gods Word through Christians today19Our Saviors Offices Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. Hebrews 3:1 A second office Jesus has is that ofPriest20PriestEvery high priest is selected from among the people and is appointed to represent the people in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. Hebrews 5:1</p> <p>21PriestEvery high priest is selected from among the people and is appointed to represent the people in matters related to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. Hebrews 5:1The Old Testament priestsrepresented people before God and offered sacrifices for sins22PriestUnlike the other high priests, He does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when He offered Himself.Hebrews 7:2723PriestUnlike the other high priests, He does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when He offered Himself.Hebrews 7:27While on earth Jesus served as High Priest bysacrificing Himself once and for all for our sins24PriestTherefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because He always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest meets our needone who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Hebrews 7:25-2625PriestTherefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because He always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest meets our needone who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Hebrews 7:25-26</p> <p> From heaven Jesus serves as High Priest byinterceding for us as our Mediator (Go-between)26Our Saviors OfficesYou are a king, then! said Pilate. Jesus answered, You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to Me.John 18:37A third office Jesus has is that ofKing27KingThen we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.1 Samuel 18:2028KingThen we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles.1 Samuel 18:20The Old Testament kingsled Gods people and fought their battles for them29KingThe sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 15:56-5730KingThe sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 15:56-57While on earth Jesus proved He was King byfighting the battle against sin and death &amp; by winning the victory for us31KingIf we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that He might be the Lord of both the dead and the living. Romans 14:8-932KingIf we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that He might be the Lord of both the dead and the living. Romans 14:8-9As our King, Jesusrules our hearts and lives through His Word33KingThat power is like the working of his mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way.Ephesians 1:19b-2334KingThat power is like the working of his mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way.Ephesians 1:19b-2335KingFrom heaven Jesus shows He is King byruling over everything for our eternal good36Agree or Disagree?The name Jesus means Son of God.Jesus Christ rules the hearts and lives of believers by His Word.Jesus Christ still works and serves us while in heaven.Every time we read about an Old Testament prophet, priest, or king, we can think about Jesus Christ in the New Testament.37Discussion Question #1Why was Jesus baptized by John if He was sinless?</p> <p>38Discussion Question #2Why is it so important to have an objective basis for our assurance of salvation?</p> <p>39Discussion Question #3What does present encounter with the living Christ mean, and what is the danger of such an emphasis?</p> <p>40Memory TreasureIf we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans 14:841Second Article of the Apostles CreedFirst HalfI believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty. From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.What does this mean?I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the virgin Mary, is my Lord.42Second Article of the Apostles CreedSecond HalfHe has redeemed me, a lost and condemned creature, purchased and won me from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil, not with gold or silver but with his holy, precious blood and with his innocent suffering and death.All this he did that I should be his own, and live under him in his kingdom, and serve him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness, just as he has risen from death and lives and rules eternally.This is most certainly true.43Closing PrayerRisen and ascended Lord, You now pray for us at the throne of the Father. Keep all those whom You love in Your name, O Lord, that they may be one even as You and the Father are One; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.</p> <p>44</p>
