1 The Royal Claim of the King to David's Throne



In this first sermon through the Gospel According to St. Matthew we examined what the title "Christ" or "Messiah" means.  We also showed through looking at Jesus' genealogical table—through the royal line of descent from David's throne—that Jesus was qualified to sit on David's throne as Messiah.

On a personal note, and with no disrespect intended, I almost could wonder if the words of Jesus could be used in my context for preaching through St. Matthew:
 "For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world--to bear witness to the truth." (John 18:37b ESV)
Even so, Maranatha.
