(ANON QUESTION RECEIVED FROM GodfirstGodalways)
why is Jesus called the son of david? i mean is it just some family tree?
Jesus is called the Son of David because yes, He definitely came from his lineage. Jesus was the successor to preserve his kingdom. It was a promise God made to David. His kingdom was Jesus’ kingdom, which was ultimately God’s kingdom. 2 Samuel 7:12-13 When your days are over and you rest with your ancestors, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, your own flesh and blood, and I will establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. David was a man after God’s heart (Jesus), and Jesus didn’t even exist yet. No wonder God chose him. He literally was blessed for being so faithful.
