Did you know that “Christ” is not the last name of Jesus? It’s a title that means “The Anointed One.” In the Old Testament there were three main offices, jobs, or positions that people were “anointed into.” Oil was poured over the heads of prophets, high priests, and kings at the beginning of their service. Yet there were prophecies of a better Anointed One who was yet to come. In Hebrew, he was called the Messiah, and in Greek, the Christ. He would be the perfect prophet, priest, and king, preaching God’s word, offering a better sacrifice, and ruling for all time. This Advent season, we will explore some of the Old Testament prophecies of the Savior who would come, foretold as prophet, priest, and king.
