Abstract Those, like Karl Rahner and Jacques Dupuis, who led the way in developing a theology of religions did not introduce reflections drawn from the priesthood of Christ. Those very few (e.g.Robert Sherman) who reflect on the priesthood of Christ have not appreciated the possibilities it offers for a theology of religions. After drawing on Hebrews, Paul, and John, this article cites relevant testimony fron the Feast of Christ the King and Vatican II's Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy. It then develops six themes from Christ's universal and eternal priesthood-in particular, what can be called the sacerdotal existential-wich illuminate the situation of those who follow other religions or none at all.
