Psalm 2 (Authority) – Pictures of Christ

We’re starting a two-part series this week entitled, “Pictures of Christ from the Psalms” which highlights different characteristics of the Messiah in the Psalms. Did you know there are over 100 quotations in the New Testament connecting the Psalms to Jesus? Chris will take us to Psalm 2 and show us something many do not make a connection to: Jesus’ Sonship is uniquely tied to Jesus’ Kingship. It’s a fascinating tie that many struggle to see.

We’ll see the psalmist reference the rebellion of the nations in Psalm 2 and how the rebellion or sin nature that is in all of us blinds us to the freedom we find in the authority of King Jesus. We hope it leaves you asking, “Am I submitting to the authority of my King and am I living that out in front of a rebellious and sinful world?”

30 Days in the Land of the Psalms
by Charles Dyer

The Jewish and Christian communities read the Psalms regularly, but have you thought about how much we’re missing by not knowing the setting in which they were written?

Many of the Psalms remain a mystery because the author makes reference to places we’ve never been. Dr. Charlie Dyer skillfully brings a select number of Psalms to life in his book, 30 Days in the Land of the Psalms. This one-month devotional will take you on an extraordinary journey to the land of Israel.
