One might argue as to whether the doctrine of the threefold office of Christ is really usable for a comprehensive description of the work of Christ. There are expositions of Christian doctrine enough which do not follow this pattern at all. There are those who fear that this pattern may do violence to the content: the fullness of the Biblical proclamation concerning the office and the work of Christ may be lost if one seeks to reduce or confine the Biblical titles of honor applied to Christ and the Biblical designations of His office to the triplex munus. Among them is Werner Elert, who is intent upon letting the Biblical proclamation speak in all its multiplicity.
