Grounds for Identifying Jesus Christ as the Son of David

His human descent

Romans 1:3

concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh,

 

Matthew 1:1

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham:

 

 

His birth in Bethlehem

Micah 5:2

2But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,

Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,

Yet out of you shall come forth to Me

The One to be Ruler in Israel,

Whose goings forth are from of old,

From everlasting.”

 

John 7:42

42 Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?”

 

 

His healing ministry

Matthew 12:22-23

22 Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. 23 And all the multitudes were amazed and said, “Could this be the Son of David?”

 

Isaiah 35:5-6

5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,

And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

6Then the lame shall leap like a deer,

And the tongue of the dumb sing.

For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,

And streams in the desert.

 

John 7:31

31 And many of the people believed in Him, and said, “When the Christ comes, will He do more signs than these which this Man has done?”

 

 

His ultimate victory

Revelation 5:5

But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

 

 

Jesus Christ is more than a merely human king descended from David

Mark 12:35-38

35 Then Jesus answered and said, while He taught in the temple, “How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the Son of David? 36 For David himself said by the Holy Spirit:

The Lord said to my Lord,

“Sit at My right hand,

Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” ’

37 Therefore David himself calls Him ‘Lord’; how is He then his Son?”

And the common people heard Him gladly.

 

John 18:36

36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”

 

 

Because we have received grace and mercy from the Lord then we must show grace and mercy to all our neighbors. When we show grace and mercy to others we show our love, honor and devotion to God.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
