Old Testament Study – Part 9. The promise of Christ through the throne of David. Part 9 of the Old Testament review touched on King David this week and the “Davidic Covenant”. As was said in 2 Samuel 7:8 (KJV) “Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel:” We find David an important link in the line of our Savior. In Luke 1:30-33, we saw an angel tell Mary “And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” We are also reminded in Acts 13:22-23 (KJV) “And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will. Of this man’s seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour, Jesus:” The lesson also touches on the very distinct geneology found in 1 Chronicles.
