Priestly Kingdom

Disciples reign with Jesus by fulfilling their role as “priestly kings” who mediate His light to the world .  At Mount Sinai, Yahweh summoned Israel to become a “ kingdom of priests, a holy nation .” If she kept His covenant, the nation would become “ my own possession…  for all the earth is mine .” God never intended for His people to be a community isolated from the rest of humanity. Instead, Israel was to reflect His light in a world darkened by sin - [ Bread and Wine - Photo by  James Coleman  on  Unsplash ].
