Q23. What offices doth Christ execute as our Redeemer?
A. Christ, as our Redeemer, executeth the offices of a prophet1, of a priest2, and of a king3, both in his estate of humiliation and exaltation.
1. Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. (Acts 3:22).
2. Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. (Hebrews 5:6).
3. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. (Psalms 2:6).
