Chosen to Represent

Priest/Prophet RelationshipGenerally, the priest was a professional set-apart. Priests were called out from the people and were mostly full or part time and paid professionals. Priests represented the people to God and were chosen because they were trained and gifted in pastoral areas, and as administrators. The priest as it has developed looked inward to believers, and maintained the religious order.

Evangelist

Evangelist Preaching to CrowdThe prophet evangelist generally presented God to the people. Evangelists were mostly unpaid or part-time. They were obviously gifted in evangelism and effective communicators and some were trained. Evangelists looked outward to the non-believer and interpreted the Christian and spiritual truth of the Gospel to them.
