The Son of David

41Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question: 42“What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The son of David.” 43He said to them, “How is it then that David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying, 44‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet”’? 45If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?” 46No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions. (Matthew 22:41-46, NRSV)

This is a really good question. Because Jesus is of the lineage of David and would be David’s son, but David calls the Messiah Lord, so how can someone’s son be their lord?

We get into trouble when we try to use logic and work out the tenants of our faith. Sometimes things that deal with faith will not make sense logically, that is why we call it faith.

Jesus is the offspring of David and is yet David’s Lord.

We don’t have to understand how it works, we just need to believe it…

What else do we question about our faith, yet still believe?
