Brief Summary

This explanation is another proof which shows that the Messiah is Christ.

This is achieved by sharing Psalm 110:1 and how it actually tells us that the Messiah would not have a typical, ‘traditional’ birth – as Matthew 22:42-46 explains by way of riddle.

This explanation is extracted from the larger article entitled ‘Proving The Messiah (Jesus) Is King David’s Descendant – From The Torah (Definitive)‘.

Begin

Did you know that the Tanakh (Old Testament) never really intended Christ to be of a typical, ‘traditional’ birth – or even an actual ‘literal blood descendant of king David – by way of Messiah’s human father’?

This is actually a key fact, as without it, Psalm 110:1 would be broken.

You see, in Psalm 110:1, King David actually calls the Messiah (Christ) his ‘master’/’lord’ – a title which a parent does not usually use when speaking of his own offspring;

The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”
Psalms 110:1 NIV

The New Testament (Brit Chadasha) answers to this effect expounding on the context of the Psalm in a riddle;

saying, “What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?”
They said to him, “The son of David.”
He said to them, “How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet”’?

If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?”
And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.
Matthew 22:42‭-‬46 ESV

Here, the Messiah (Christ) is attached to and descended from the house of king David – however, Christ was not born of his human father Joseph’s seed (G-d put Christ into faithful Mary’s womb via way of miracle, and Mary was then married to Joseph).

Christ is thus both a descendant of king David by way of poetic, spiritual linkage – and at the same time, is superior to king David, being his lord, as per the Psalm and the New Testament (Brit Chadasha) explaining it.

This answers and explains how the Tanakh (Old Testament) actually foretells and notified us, that the birth of the Messiah (Christ), and inturn his literal family link to the house of King David and also Solomon, would not be typical, but very special – as a father does not address his son as his lord (superior).

Hoping it is fruitful.

May the Holy G-d bless you beyond maximum, believing in His risen, created Son the Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yehoshua HaMoshiach). Amen.
