One More Point and I Close

“How is it that they say the Christ is David’s son? For David himself says in the book of Psalms,‘The Lord said to my Lord, sit at My right hand, until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.’” Luke 20:41-43

This is from Psalm 110:1, which has always been confusing to me without substituting the words “the Lord” with “God” and “my Lord” with “Jesus.” But that’s just me.

Here’s this passage pretty much interpreted by Paul in Romans 1:3-4.

Concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh, who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Then Jesus had one last word for his detractors, mainly concerning the conniving scribes, saying directly to his disciples, but with his enemies listening in.

And while all the people were listening, He said to the disciples,“Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love respectful greetings in the market places, and chief seats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets, who devour widows’ houses, and for appearance’s sake offer long prayers. These will receive greater condemnation.” Luke 20:45-47

Christ’s enemies will face their respective days in court, and will ultimately suffer humiliation and eternal judgment, some more than others, if that can even be fathomed.

Clearly the lines were now drawn in the sand. The takeaways in all this are no one “gets away with murder” with God as the supreme judge, and Christ’s resurrection was foretold years in advance and is the crux of Christianity.
