March 16, 2024 | The Davidic Covenant, Part 5


The Similarities Between David and Jesus

God’s covenant with King David unlocks many of Scripture’s beautiful truths, particularly about Jesus. It explains why Jesus is the King of Israel, the Messiah, the Son of God, and the Son of Man. This week we conclude our five-part series on the Davidic covenant with our focus on the ties between King David and Jesus, the King of kings.

Jesus and David shared some striking similarities. Both were just and righteous shepherds who hailed from the humble town of Bethlehem. And, interestingly, both had two comings—one of humility and suffering, one of victory and glory. Jesus became the fulfillment of God’s promise to make a permanent kingly dynasty through David’s line. We who trust Christ for salvation eagerly look forward to His Second Coming when He will reign in glory with justice and righteousness. We hope you’ve enjoyed exploring the rich depth of the Davidic Covenant with us!
