While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions. Matthew 22:41-46
People will often say “Jesus never said He is God” however Christ really tried to make it easy for people to understand this, it just seems like many either misunderstand Jesus or just simply don’t want to believe him. Here we see Jesus asking the religious leaders “Who’s Son is the Messiah”? Hint, hint…..This reminds you of when Jesus asked his own disciples “Who do you think I am” (Matthew 16)
The Christ, was standing right in front of the religious leaders asking them about himself, but they still didn’t get it. Even though these men were to be considered the “experts” at scripture and The Law, they didn’t even recognize the Messiah was standing right in front of them. The religious leaders answered that the Messiah would be the biological Son of David. This was based on their knowledge of the Messianic Prophecy of Psalm 110, so it confirms they know Jesus is asking them about the Messiah.
Jesus said “David in Spirit called him Lord” , When David was prophesying about the coming of the Messiah , he was filled with the Holy Spirit, this was confirmed by Christ. As Jesus was trying to point out, if David was talking about his biological son, he would not be calling his son “Lord” It’s obvious David was actually prophecying about Jesus , and Christ is the Son of God, not the biological Son of David
A Psalm of David. The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. Psalm 110:1
When we look at the original Hebrew it says “Yahweh said unto my Lord” Meaning the Father is talking to the Son to sit as his right hand. Can a human sit at the right hand of God? Can a human die for the sins of the world? Absolutely not, Jesus is God in the flesh (John 1:14, Isaiah 9:6) Jesus was trying to point this out to the religious leader , but they just didn’t get it, even though they were experts of the scriptures
Today, Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God the Father, Jesus Christ reigns from his throne as King of Kings and Lord of Lords , Amen!
