Who's a prophet, priest, and king?

Who's a prophet, priest, and king?  The likely response among Christians is a confident, "Jesus is."  That's correct.

But consider also these two passages:
  • But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.  (1 Pt 2:9 ESV)
  • To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.  (Rev 1:5-6 ESV)
Who's a prophet, priest, and king?  Jesus is.  And also every true Christian, all of us who belong to Christ.
