David's Son - David's Lord

From Series: The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 6

Mark 12:35-37  (ID: 2848)

Jesus turned the tables on His questioners and asked them a rhetorical question with eternal implications. The Bible clearly identifies Jesus as both the Son of David and the eternal Son of God. Alistair Begg teaches us that only Christ can open our spiritually blind eyes, enabling us to understand the Scriptures and see Him as the Savior of the world.


Whose Son Is the Christ?

35And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, “How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? 36David himself, in the Holy Spirit, declared,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord,

“Sit at my right hand,

until I put your enemies under your feet.”’

37David himself calls him Lord. So how is he his son?” And the great throng heard him gladly.
