Prophets, priests, and kings were all anointed in the Old Testament with olive oil. Being anointed means to be set apart. A head full of oil would do that for anyone!

Jesus is THE anointed one. Watch this week’s study of the Apostles’ Creed – Christ’s Office – to see the different hats that Jesus’ still wears for us today.
