Quotes on Christ’s Resurrection (5)

This is a startling statement, the more you think about it, but seems to me justified on the basis of Acts 2:30-31 (King), Hebrews 7:16 (Priest), various verses in John, such as 8:28, 14:26, 16:7, 13 (Prophet):

“If (Christ) did not rise from dead and return to His Father, He is neither Priest, Prophet, nor King, in the full sense of any of these terms.”

William Milligan, The Resurrection of our Lord (MacMillan 1927), 152
