Advent: Root of David

December 4, 2017

I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord, forever;
    with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.
I declare that your steadfast love is established forever;
    your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens. You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to my servant David: ‘I will establish your descendants forever, and build your throne for all generations.’” Selah

Psalm 89:1-4

‘It is I, Jesus, who sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.’

Revelation 22:16

Day 4

As with yesterdays Old Testament passage love and faithfulness is a recurring theme in verses 1 and 2.

But now the covenant (promise) is made and the descendants are secure for ever. He is the root – the foundation- which holds all of these promises together.

In the New Testament passage Jesus once more claims his lineage to David
