Prophets, priests and kings

For the past 2-3 years, I have been especially focusing on the kings of the Bible in my preaching and teaching and more recently on the prophets of the Bible and am lining up a series on the priests of the Bible. I do so as it is a subject that interests me, I know something about given my early background, there are important lessons to be learned, especially in a day when the certainties of the faith are dismissed. It is a subject that is widely neglected in my experience, even by churches that put special store to teaching the Bible and not just the easy to stomach parts. I am grateful to my own church for giving me free reign to cover these subjects when I lead Bible studies and being able to preach on prophets, priests and kings when the opportunity arises. Before I explore more deeply concerning the priests of the Bible, I am planning to release a book titled: “The Prophets of the Bible”. While somewhat hit and miss and a lot of my notes are not available on-line, I have posted on several aspects on my website, and forms the main content for this e-book, which I intend to update when there are new articles I have added. The presence of prophets, priests and kings, especially in the history of Israel, is significant as is the relationship between the three. It is interesting to note while there are exceptional cases of individuals taking on more than one of these offices, only in the case of Jesus can we cite one who combines being prophet, priest and king.
