The True King
Psalm 110 is unbelievably rich, but it’s not all that well known. Did you know that the New Testament writers quote this psalm more than any other passage in the Old Testament? Jesus forcefully used this psalm to explain to people who he was. Furthermore, the first Christian sermon was preached on this psalm.
The psalm talks about some person who combines excellencies, who combines traits that ordinarily would never be combined in a single figure. It’s talking about a king, but specifically a divine and human king, a strong but weak king–and therefore a transforming, beautiful king.
This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on March 29, 2015. Series “Pilgrim Prayer: Psalms for the Journey”. Scripture: Psalm 110:1-7.
