CHRIST OUR PROPHET, PRIEST, AND KING BY F. D. HUNTINGTON, D. D.,THIS IS OF A TRUTH THAT PROPHET THAT SHOULD COME INTO THE WORLD. John vi. 14. THAT HE MIGHT BE A MERCIFUL AND FAITHFUL HIGH-PRIEST IN THINGS PERTAINING TO GOD, TO MAKE RECONCILIATION FOR THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE. Hebrews ii. 1 7. THEN PILATE SAID, ART THOU THE KING OF THE JEWS ? JESUS ANSWERED, MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD. John xviii. 33, 36. THE subject is so distinctly threefold that it may be properly introduced with these three sentences of Scrip ture. Jesus Christ is presented by them in three offi ces, different in kind, but neither of them inconsistent with the other two, and all of them together serving to manifest the completeness of his Messiahship, or his character as the spiritual Guide, the propitiatory Sav iour, and the reigning Lord of men. * This sermon was first preached in an extemporaneous form, Sunday before Easter, (April 17,) 1859. It was written out and repeated else where, May 1. Early in that montti an excellent article on the same subject, the authorship of which I do not know, but an article entirely

independent of this discourse, and very likely in type when this was first delivered, appeared in the " American Theological Review." The lines at the end, and one sentence beside, are now borrowed from that paper. 322 CHRIST OUE PROPHET, PRIEST, AND KING. Each of the statements stands for a class, with many other examples to be found in the Bible. Within each class the forms of expression vary, following the free dom of individual constitution and culture in the writ ers and speakers, or else suited to the special object, the argumentative connection, or the moral tempera ture and coloring, of the passage. But the agreement between them is substantial. They are all grounded in one absolute reality belonging to the Saviour s nature and ministry. Thus there is one large class of declarations which place him before us as a prophet. In the Biblical sense, the prophet is a teacher. Prediction is one part of his office, but only one. As being the most surprising to common minds, it gives a name to the whole. But it is not the whole. The prophet predicts by virtue of that larger vision, or insight, which is a deep

and general endowment of the prophetic soul, ena bling him to look both before and after, over and beneath, inside and throughout the matter prophesied upon. He is related not so much to time or times, as to the eternal truth of God which is beyond time, and the same in all times, unchanged amidst the changeable. Hence his power of penetrating to the heart of a matter, reading its secret laws, and by that means knowing how it will act and come out in the future ; a divine gift, an inspiration. He fore tells to other men because he sees deeper than other men. He sees from the centre, and so takes in conse quences and relations by detail in their just place, and their interior or heavenly order. Accordingly, the old Hebrew prophets were a race reformatory and agitat ing. They were far-sighted because they were deep-CHRIST OUR PROPHET, PRIEST, AND KING. 323 sighted. One of their names signifies this : Seers. By the same piercing wisdom they knew at once how men would act, and how they ought to act, and then what would be the consequences of their acting. This they stood up and told aloud. It demanded courage, as it
