The scripture is all about a revelation of God to us. In the short blog post below we will see that there are some characteristics of David (in the bible) that foreshadowed similar characteristics of Christ
The scripture is all about a revelation of God to us.
David – A type of Jesus
David was the least significant of his brotherhood—Jesus became not just a human, but a slave, humbling Himself to the cross (Philippians 2:5-8)David was the least significant of his brotherhood—Jesus became not just a human, but a slave, humbling Himself to the cross (Philippians 2:5-8) Click To Tweet
David was a shepherd whose flock was being attacked by a lion and who singly and alone defeated the lion—Jesus is our Shepherd whose flock is being attacked by Satan a roaring lion and Jesus singly and alone defeated Satan
David and his people were attacked by an army with a giant leading it, all the people were afraid, but David, trusting God, defeated the giant cutting off his head—the human race was attacked by an angel army led by the father of lies and Jesus left all power behind, became a lowly weak human and by trusting His Father defeated that giant crushing his head—just as the Scripture says.
David broke with tradition and fed his men show bread, applying design laws of love and health over arbitrary rules—Jesus broke with tradition and healed on Sabbath, touched lepers, spoke to women, foreigners, prostitutes, tax collectors, refused to stone the woman caught in adultery and instead applied design law—law of love and healing!
David was pursued and harassed by his own government and attempts were made on his life, but he eventually becomes king—Jesus, as a human, was pursued and harassed by his own government and multiple attempts were made on His life, but even though they eventually kill him, he destroys death and arises to be King of Kings!
David fell into terrible sin as king and repented and out of his repentance came forth, from that terrible event, wisdom—Solomon. Jesus became sin though He knew no sin, and from that terrible experience came forth the true wisdom of God—God’s perfect character of love restored into humanity!
