• Laws about Priests Media Resource by

    Deuteronomy 18

    Deuteronomy 18–19 may seem to be a disparate collection of laws, warnings, and prophecies. In this lesson, Dr. Godfrey works through these passages to make sense of them, showing how they are unified and point forward to Jesus, the Messiah who fulfills Old Testament promises. View Resource

  • The Benefits of the Priesthood Media Resource by

    Exodus 28

    As long as Christ remains outside of us, and we are separated from him,” John Calvin notes, “all that he has suffered and done for us, and the salvation of the human race remains useless and of no value to us.” In other words, Christ’s benefits only become ours by faith. Such a faith must be a living one in order to lay hold of and be joined to Him. What He accomplished then becomes ours, as though we performed it ourselves. This lesson opens up such an idea as we study the benefits of the priesthood for Israel. View Resource

  • The Priesthood of the Lord Media Resource by

    Exodus 28

    We live in a sin-stained world just as the Israelites did as they wandered in the wilderness. Our world bears similarities to and, at the same time, differences from theirs. One dissimilarity concerns the priesthood and all that it entailed. This institution seems strange to us. Yet this is the Word of God, and in this lesson we pay attention to the priesthood in detail, in order that we may learn how these specifics point to our Great High Priest, Jesus Christ.

  • Triumphal Entrance Media Resource by

    Matthew 21:1-10

    When “the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee” triumphantly entered into Jerusalem, He did so in fulfillment of an Old Testament promise that Israel’s king would come to the city riding a donkey. In this lecture, Dr. R.C. Sproul will examine Jesus’ three mediatorial offices, not only as our prophet and king, but as our high priest as well. View Resource

  • Our Great High Priest Media Resource by

    Hebrews 4:11-16

    Immediately after Jesus was baptized by John, He went into the desert for forty days being tempted by the devil. Why was this necessary? The Bible says He went to learn righteousness. Does that mean that Jesus didn’t know what righteousness was prior to His time in the wilderness? What redemptive value does it have for you two-thousand years later? In this message, R.C. Sproul explains our need for a high priest and the necessity for Him to sympathize with our weaknesses. View Resource

  • Who Was Melchizedek? Media Resource by

    Hebrews 7:1-3

    During the formation of the nation of Israel, God set the Levites apart to be the priests of Israel. The genealogy of Jesus gives no indication that He is from Levi, but the book of Hebrews tells us He is our High Priest. So how can Jesus be our High Priest if He wasn’t born into the tribe of Levi? How did he do it without violating his own law? In this message, R.C. Sproul shows us the marvelous way Jesus was made our High Priest and by whose name that priestly line was established.

  • Priest Media Resource by

    Psalm 110:1-4

    When some people hear the word ‘priest’ they automatically associate it with Roman Catholic clergy, forgetting that it is actually a biblical office with great significance. Old Testament priests served in the Temple worship of Israel, particularly in the sacrificial system necessary for the atonement of the sins of the people. Now that the Temple has been destroyed, do we still need a Priest? In this message, Dr. Sproul explores the office of priest as it is found in Scripture, and the One who ever lives to intercede for His people. View Resource

  • Prophet Media Resource by

    We read of a Prophet in the New Testament whose prophesies focused on Himself. What kind of prophet does this kind of prophesying? In this message, Dr. Sproul looks at the role of the prophet in the Bible, and the One who fulfilled it perfectly. View Resource

  • The Offices of Christ Media Resource by

    Psalm 110

    The offices of Christ are connected to Christ’s role as mediator. In God’s plan for redemption, Christ serves a threefold office called the munus triplex. In this lesson, Dr. Sproul explains how Christ fulfills the Old Testament offices as our Prophet, Priest, and King. View Resource
