What Happened to God's Promise to David of an Everlasting Throne?
JERUSALEM – In 2 Samuel 7, God promised that King David’s line would continue on the throne over Israel forever. But what exactly does that mean? Many Jews interpret that promise to mean that there would always be a son of David alive to sit on the throne – if there was a throne. Christians believe that it was all fulfilled in Jesus.However, the prophet Jeremiah believed that it meant that there would always be someone of Davidic lineage sitting on an actual throne over Israel. In fact, the Bible actually gives clues as to how the throne continued, long after the fall of Jerusalem. On today’s show, host Brent Nagtegaal, discusses the biblical proofs of God’s literal promise to David.
