And the great throng heard him gladly. (Mark 12: 37)
And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, “How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? David himself, in the Holy Spirit, declared, “‘The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet.’” David himself calls him Lord. So how is he his son?” And the great throng heard him gladly. (Mark 12: 35-37)
One of the most important characters in the history of salvation is King David. David is recognised as Jesus’s ancestor by the same intellectuals of the time, the scribes. Beginning with this assumption, Jesus tries to make those who are honestly willing to listen to Him understand that He is not just the son of David, but the Son of God due to His divine nature. The crowd listened to Jesus willingly. How about us? Do we listen faithfully and lovingly to Jesus’s Word and put it into practice, even in the little things we do every day?
