Christ, the Son of David, at the Father’s Right Hand

2016.01-05 - Brooklyn_Museum_-_Woe_unto_You,_Scribes_and_Pharisees_(Malheur_à_vous,_scribes_et_pharisiens)_-_James_TissotI preached from Mark 12:35–37 the other day. Jesus asks how the Christ could be the son of David and quotes Ps 110:1. For whatever help it may be to someone else, I cited a number of passages to demonstrate two themes (below) in Scripture that were found in Mark 12:35–37.

The Messiah, Christ, and Son of David

2 Sam 7:12–16; Ps 132:11; Isa 9:7; 11:1; Jer 23:5; 30:9; Ezek 34:23; Luke 1:32, 69; John 7:42; Acts 2:30; Rom 1:3; 2 Tim 2:8; Rev 22:16

At the Right Hand

Matt 22:44 (par., Mark 12:36 and Luke 20:42–43); Matt 22:64 (quoted with Dan 7:13; par., Mark 14:46 and Luke 22:69); Acts 2:33, 34–35; 5:31; 7:55–56; Rom 8:34; Eph 1:20; Col 3:1; Heb 1:3, 13; 8:1; 10:12; 1 Pet 3:22

There are more references for both of these themes, to be sure, and each theme is a study in and of itself. The references above at least give these themes a preview. Enjoy!
