Jesus is indeed the Son of God and savior of mankind.
In his ministries before God Jesus also serves as
a prophet to his generation,
a priest who represents men to God and God to man, and a man who will rule the entire world as king.
1. Prophet – Moses said another prophet like him was coming (Deut.18:15). According to Acts 3:22-24, Jesus was that prophet. The crowds received Jesus as a prophet (Matt. 21:11, 46), and Jesus’ claimed to be a prophet (Luke 4:24).
2. Priest – The priests of the Old Testament came from the line of Aaron of the tribe of Levi. Jesus was from the tribe of Judah, yet the New Testament makes it clear that Jesus is a priest like Melchizedek who was not even Jewish. Melchizedek was a priest because he had been chosen by God. The book of Hebrews explains the priesthood of Jesus to the Jewish people. The priests of Aaron served on earth in a man-made temple that was a shadow of heaven. Jesus is a priest who can enter the true heavenly temple and actually remove sin from man in the presence of God.
2. King – Jesus is seated at God’s right hand ruling all creation from heaven now, but we are awaiting his return when he will be King of the whole earth (Zechariah 14:9).
