Anointed King and Son

Jesus is the promised Messiah, the King who reigns on David’s throne, and the anointed Son of God  –  Psalm 2:1-9 . The second Psalm portrays the Messiah, the ideal king of Israel who is destined to reign on David’s throne. The Psalmist identifies him as “ Yahweh’s  anointed ,” “ my king upon holy Zion ,” and “ my son .” His enthronement marks “ the day that Yahweh has begotten you ”; he is the “ anointed one ,” the appointed ruler and son of God - [ Photo by  Joshua Sortino  on Unsplash ].
