This article wants to consider the soteriological significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The author considers Jesus' resurrection in relation to his offices as Messiah: prophet, priest (Hebrews 5:5–10), and king (Acts 2:30–32). He wants to emphasize that the resurrection on Sunday is more than just a "proof" of the gospel of the cross.
After explaining the titles used to describe Jesus, this article focuses on the meaning of "Christ." It shows that Christ was anointed to a threefold office of priest, prophet, and king. At the same time the believer, as a Christian, is united to Christ; hence, believers are also anointed as priests, prophets, and kings.
