Would you please help me to connect the old testament ministers to the new testament fivefold offices clearly stating the similarities of these offices.
The following is an adaptation of a similar question:
What is commonly called the five-fold ministry is actually four ministries and one office, the apostle. Apostles are either elders or deacons. We clearly see elders in the Old Testament, at all levels of government. Ephesians 2:20 gives the key to seeing the apostolic office and the ministry of prophet in the Temple. Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together grows to a holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom you also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit. Jesus spoke of this in Matthew 16:18 And I say also to you that you are Peter (little stone), and on this Huge, Unmovable Boulder I will build My Church; and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
Note that the Old Testament elders walked in submission to Moses, and later, to Joshua, just as present-day apostles walk in submission to Christ.
