Day 8 - Jesus's Identity as King

As He drew near to Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. And hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what this meant. They told him, Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.And he cried out, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!... Jesus stopped and commanded him to be brought to Him. When he came near, He asked him, What do you want me to do for you?He said, Lord, let me recover my sight.Jesus said to him, recover your sight; your faith has made you well.Immediately, he could see and began following Jesus.” --Luke 18:35-43

 

Hundreds of years before Jesus’s life on earth, there lived an Israelite king named David. David’s life is detailed in the Old Testament of the Bible in the books of 1 & 2 Samuel, and he is also responsible for writing many of the Bible’s Psalms. He was a great king who followed God passionately, and God blessed his reign over the Jewish nation. God promised David that He would watch over his lineage and continue to bless the nations through the “House of David,” but David’s sons and heirs to his throne did not ultimately obey God and they turned the Jewish people from God’s direction.

Seven generations after David, his offspring were still ruling over Israel, though they had fallen on some decidedly hard times. A prophet named Isaiah heard from God that indeed a “Son of David” would come to redeem all the people of the world from their sins; that He would usher in a reign of peace on the earth and bring freedom from the oppression of sin (You can read this prophecy in the book of Isaiah 9:1-7).

In the first chapter of the book of Matthew in the Bible, you can read the entire genealogy of Jesus and indeed we find that He is a part of David’s line! Jesus Christ is the promised King sent to free the world from darkness, and when the blind man in Luke 18 calls Jesus the “Son of David” he is openly acknowledging Jesus’s identity as the Messiah. Jesus then opens the man’s eyes as a symbol of the justice He came to establish on earth (Read Psalm 72:1-4).

 

Read the verses in Isaiah mentioned above. Make a list of the characteristics of the Prince of Peace. What is the most important characteristic for you to remember and why?
