Mark 12- Son of God

And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David? For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool. Mark 12:35-36

One of the great mysteries or revelations was foretold by David via The Holy Spirit. One of the mysteries is “How can the Son of God also be the Son of David”? The line of David is revealing Jesus’ human side along with his deity. As we know from the scriptures, the Messiah had to die for our sins, in order for the Son of God to die, he must first become human. This is why the incarnation is such a glorious event

Israel didn’t understand the incarnation of the Messiah. They believed the Messiah would just be a human, a mighty political warrior like David. However the Messiah was much more than that, God manifested in the flesh. So how can the Son of God also be the Son of David? If you read the genealogies from Matthew and Luke, it explains Mary and Joseph were from the line of David. Even though the Messiah was conceived by the Holy Spirit, the womb of Mary was human. What a marvelous mystery!

David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly. Mark 12:37

Jesus reveals “David himself addresses the Messiah as Lord, demonstrating that David is not talking about himself” David was revealing a prophecy about the Messiah, that the Son of God will sit at the right hand of the Father, does that sound familiar? 

Peter reveals in Acts 2, David again prophesied about the Messiah (Psalm 16) The Holy One will not see decay, however as Peter addressed David was dead and buried for many years. (Acts 2:29)  Demonstrating that David was not foretelling about himself but he was prophesying about Jesus, who rose from the dead on the 3rd day!

There are over 300 Messianic prophecies throughout the Old Testament that all were fulfilled by Jesus , Amen!
