THE SUM OF ALL HOPES

0

TEXT

Psalm 110 Of David.  A psalm.

The LORD says to my Lord:

“Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies

a footstool for your feet.”

The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion;

you will rule in the midst of your enemies.

Your troops will be willing

on your day of battle.

Arrayed in holy majesty,

from the womb of the dawn

you will receive the dew of your youth.

The LORD has sworn

and will not change his mind:

“You are a priest forever,

in the order of Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at your right hand;

he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.

He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead

and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.

He will drink from a brook beside the way;

therefore he will lift up his head.

NIV

READ

My Lord. Priest forever, in Melchizedek’s line. Judge of the nations, crusher of pagan kings, the scepter extended from Zion…

Could these hopes truly be found in this Jesus of Nazareth, descendent of David? Not merely these hopes, but the anticipations of every nation, every tribe, every culture find their culmination in this divine carpenter from Galilee.
