Matthew 22

Series: 2023 Bible Reading

And now, a minute with the Word…

Jesus tells another parable about the Jews’ and their leaders’ rejection of God, His prophets, and His invitation to His Son’s wedding. Don’t forget these words when Jesus starts to mention the destruction of Jerusalem in the next few chapters; “and they seized his servants, treated them spitefully, and killed them. But when the king heard, he was furious, and he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.” The Pharisees and Sadducees then take turns, trying to entangle Jesus in His words with what they thought were difficult questions. It should not be surprising that Jesus, God‘s word, God’s logos, demonstrated a mastery of words and logic, to the effect that the multitudes were astonished at His teaching. After Jesus asks the Pharisees, a final question, no one longer dared to question him anymore. He asks how it is possible for the Messiah, the Christ, to be the son of David if David in Psalm 110 also calls Him, Lord. How could the Messiah be both David’s son and David’s Lord? Recall the reference Jesus made to Psalm 8 in the last chapter. David himself praised the Lord in that Psalm and said the Lord was praised from the mouth of babes, a verse that Jesus applied to Himself after the children praised Him saying “Hosanna to the Son of David.” How could Jesus, the Messiah, be both David’s son and his Lord? “Oh, the depth of the riches, both of the wisdom and knowledge of God, how unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable are His ways” (Romans 11:33).
