An Old Song That I Can’t Stop Listening To:

Excerpt From the Preface of My New Book on Supererogation: “Ultimately, Evangelical ethics is made more beautiful and the lives of Christian disciples are immensely enriched by the inclusion of supererogation.”

Jesus Christ as Prophet, Priest, and King: While working on an article recently, I came across the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith. In Chapter 8, paragraphs nine and ten present Christ as prophet, priest, and king. This view of Christ’s three major offices are presented in a succinct manner. Ultimately, these are three significant roles in which Christ as the Head of the church—his body—serves his people. Wayne Grudem also spends an entire chapter in his Systematic Theology discussing these three offices, or roles, which can be found “among the people of Israel in the Old Testament” (Grudem 624). This focus is, at least to my knowledge, mostly emphasized by those in the Reformed tradition. I find it truly helpful.

This is also a quick read on these three offices: Jesus’ Threefold Office as Prophet, Priest, and King

What does it mean for the Pope to speak “ex cathedra”? Click here for a 1–2 minute read; this is definitely one of the major teachings that separate Roman Catholics from Protestants.
