So whose son was Jesus?

The pharisees said that(somewhere in matthew, I can't remember where!) he was the son of David

But didn't David call him 'my lord"?

Would you call your son 'my lord"? No.

So if David called Jesus his lord, how could he be his son?

Just a little something

That's OK. Nobody can assume irrelavence to anything.

Sorry. I took the question marks literally. . . . ;-)

And one more thing, I'm not getting at anything. I'm just mentioning this cool thing that Jesus said.

Ah, sorry! There aren't any Scriptures, to my knowledge, that indicate David was aware that the Messiah was going to come from his line. However, don't quote me on that, as I could be wrong. Actually, now that I'm thinking about it, there may be a moment in David's life where God does promise that the Messiah is coming from his bloodline. I'll have to dig a little and see if I can find it.

I know that, otherwise my brain would probably have turned into a ball of mush when I read that! And I'm getting at what Jesus was getting at, and I don't know what that is. So really, my qeustion is, Did David know Jesus would be his descendant?

Interesting questions, though it's difficult to tell exactly what you're getting at. Because of that, I apologize if I'm giving you information about which you're already aware! :-)

To call someone "Son of ________" in that culture meant that that person was a descendant of that line, not the literal son. So David had a son, who had a son, who had a son, etc. . . until we get down to Jesus.

David, however, recognized the promise of a Messiah - a Shepherd-King who would rule His people. It is to this Man that he says, "my Lord."
