Wilhelmus á Brakel on the Benefits of Christ’s Three-Fold Office

Jesus is “the Christ.” Jesus is anointed by God to carry out all those Old Testament offices for which men were anointed for: prophet, priest, and king. What does this mean for the believer?

He removes blindness by His prophetic office,
enmity with God by His priestly office,
and inability by His kingly office.[1]
