From "The Good News We Almost Forgot" on Lord's Day 12

“Answer 31 goes on to explain that the Father ordained and the Spirit anointed Christ to fulfill three different offices: prophet, priest, and king. If you’ve ever struggled to explain Christ at the beach or around the water cooler, try using these three words. Prophet, priest, and king is not the only way to talk about Christ, but it has to be one of the simplest and best-better than contemporary ascriptions of Jesus as revolutionary, home-boy, or the “center” (never sure what to make of that one).”
