If you take the New Testament as authoritative it's the Father speaking to the Son. For to which of the angels did God ever say, ... (Heb 1:5, ESV) 8 But of the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, the scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom. 9  You have loved righteousness and hated ...

While I agree that this passage of Job 33:14-28 contains elements of a Messianic prophecy, I do not think the associations made by the OP hold up under close scrutiny. Still, the side-by-side pairings with the narrative of the thief work well, not as a fulfillment of a prophecy as much as an illustration of Job’s themes of repentance and redemption. In the ...

First, I note that the A.V. says in Isaiah 11:1 that a Branch shall grow out of Jesse's roots. Verse 10 adds that an ensign of the people (including Gentiles) will be a root of Jesse. The answer becomes clear in Revelation 5:5, which reads (A.V.): "...Weep not: behold the Lion that is of the tribe of Juda, the root of David, hath prevailed to open the ...

In God's eyes, John the Baptist was the legitimate high priest and the ones in Jerusalem were all usurpers. Luke tells us that in chapter one of his gospel. Just as Moses (a shadow of Christ) passed his priestly authority onto Aaron, the first Levitical priest, John as the last Levitical priest passed his authority onto Jesus. And the change of the ...

How does one reconcile Jesus, as the anointed successor (a priest), with his post cross High Priestly role when reading Leviticus 16:32&33 By acknowledging that Jesus is not an anointed successor as described in Leviticus because we are under a completely different covenant... I'll just let the Hebrew writer explain as he seems to directly address your ...

Jesus was not only descended from the kings of Israel, but also from the priests of Israel. According to the geneology of Matthew chapter 1, Jesus was a descendent of King David and therefore a descendent of the kingly line, but few realize that he was also a descendent of the priestly line as well. There was in the days of Herod, king of Judaea, a certain ...

Your post is good and your thoughts are clear. What isn’t clear to me is why you feel that there is a need to reconcile Jesus as the High Priest according to Melchizedek with the type of the High Priest under the Law according to the Levitical priesthood. The glory, scope and design of the New Covenant far exceeds the Old Covenant. We have a prophet LIKE ...

We learn in 2 Samuel 8:18 & more importantly Psalm 110:4 that דָוִ֖ד כֹּהֲנִ֥ים Davidic Kohanim (Sons of King David) - were born to become ‘righteous’ Priests like Shem (by administering justice and charity) & ‘Blessed’ with tithes like Avram (by victoriously restoring peace with help from YHVH) : “because [of] the words” (עַל־דִּ֜בְרָתִ֗י) “of ...

Practically every small detail in this little narrative of humble beginnings has a reference to something else, and generally something much greater. And the details are interconnected, so we will deal with them in a single long answer. (1) The prophecy of Joseph’s name, He Will Add. Rachel’s midwife said, “Fear not; thou shalt have this son also.” (Gen 35:...

What IS the glory of God? As God is spirit and invisible, any glory that one (like Moses) might see is an effect of God's presence, a manifestation of God's presence in a way that we might grasp and witness that is truly glorious and bewildering. It could be a great light, a cloud, a pillar of fire - these effects are not God - they are the result of His ...

No, it does not prove the Trinity. However, John 12:41 does prove the deity of Jesus Christ. One need only follow the pronouns and the verbs. Isaiah saw the glory of YHWH. There is only ONE time that Isaiah saw the gory of YHWH which is at Isaiah 6:1-5. John says that Isaiah saw "literally" his glory, the glory of Jesus. The verb Isaiah used for &...
