Sample text

The cross of Christ as a priestly work cannot be appreciated in New Testament terms unless it arouses a profound sense of rupture and reversal. "For the Son of Man ... came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45, RSV). The Priestly People of God The New Testament sometimes describes in priestly terms the people who form a community in response to God's call. "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's own people" (1 Pet. 2:9, RSV).

7), and to Zedediah's refusal to surrender to the Babylonians (Jer. ). Nevertheless, the king became integrated in many streams of the biblical tradition. He was seen not as an unwelcome interloper in faith and history, but as a son of God, designated to lead the people. " Ps. 2:7,(RSV) Regardless of the activities of some of Israel's kings, Israel retained the hope that the king would effect deliverance for the people and maintain a just and prosperous society. He [the king] will judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice.

2 Sam. 7:29b (TEV) Even today, the use of the servant language by those in power often camouflages the royal will-to-power. Jesus as Royal Servant By appropriating the title, "Son of David," the early Christians declared Jesus heir to that royal office. The prophets of the exile further extended the messianic portrait by announcing that the royal Messiah suffers, even dies, as the act of salvation by the holy one of Israel (Isa. 5253). The reign of God announced by the prophets comes through one who gives up his life rather than bringing about a new world by a military campaign.
