Jesus – Inheritor of the Throne of David

December 27th, 2009 · No Comments

Dr. Hartmann opens describing King David as a man after God’s own heart that was a Warrior King who drove out the enemies of God’s people from the land of Israel.

Dr. Hartman reminds his listeners that Joshua did not drive out all of Israel’s enemies – and that after more than 300 years of judges ruling in Israel the enemies of Israel still had not been driven from the land. The last judge of Israel named Samuel initiates the kingdom period with the first king named Saul. And then finally David emerges on the scene. David is anointed to accomplish God’s purposes for Israel.

Dr. Hartmann describes some of the characteristics of David, who is called a man after God’s own heart, and that understood God’s plans. We learn that David wanted to build a House for God.

It behooves us to understand David, how his kingdom is described in scripture, and the promises God made regarding the Davidic kingdom, in order to understand the characteristics of the inheritor of David’s throne – Jesus, and His kingdom.

In the gospel of Luke1:32, Jesus is described as inheriting the throne of his father David

What did Jesus say about the kingdom and how does that look when cast against the backdrop recorded in the Old Testament and its many passages and promises about David, His kingdom, and the promises related to David’s House?

Dr. Hartman closes with and exhortation to study the Word and find out where Psalm 110:1 appears in the New Testament. He says to study Philippians 2:6-11, Ephesians1: 19-23, and 1 Peter 3:22 to find out what these passages say about the Reign of Christ.
