Son of David

From BelieveTheSign

This article is one in a series of studies on Jesus as Son - you are currently on the topic that is in bold:

As the Son of David, Jesus Christ was heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Israel. King David was promised by God that his seed would build a temple to the Lord, and the throne of this son would be established forever. David's son Solomon built a magnificent temple to the LORD, established his father's kingdom in peace, and had wisdom above all other men of the earth. However, Solomon's temple was eventually toppled, and his kingdom destroyed - testifying that Solomon did not fulfill God's promise to David.

Jesus built another temple to the LORD (his resurrected body), was wiser than Solomon, and brought the kingdom of his Father to earth. "


The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. (Matthew 1:1)

And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he shall be my son. (II Samuel 7:12-14)
