While Jesus was teaching in the temple courtyard, he asked, “How can the experts in Moses’ Teachings say that the Messiah is David’s son? David, guided by the Holy Spirit, said, ‘The Lord said to my Lord: “Take the highest position in heaven until I put your enemies under your control.” ’
David calls him Lord. So how can he be his son?” The large crowd enjoyed listening to him. (Mark 12:35-37 GW)
The Jewish leaders challenged Jesus with questions, but He could answer them all. But when Jesus asked them questions, they were stymied.
The Messiah was descended from King David as a human, but David called Him "Lord." Why? God's Spirit gave David insight into the divine nature of Messiah, speaking of Jesus. ©Word-Strong_2014
