Why is Jesus called the Son of David?

Have you ever wondered why in the Bible that Jesus is called the “son of David”? This is a simple bible study session where we will look at verses that help us find the answer.

In Matthew 21 we are told the story of when Jesus was making his entry into the city of Jerusalem before he was crucified. When everyone saw him coming they all laid out palm branches and called him the “son of David.” In this video we help look at some other verses to help us understand why they gave him this name or title. Also, we look at Matthew 1 where the genealogy of Jesus is detailed.

At the very beginning, it again uses the phrase “son of David” to identify who Jesus is. Have you ever wondered why He is called the Son of David in your own Bible study? In this video bible study, Andrew Chalmers talks about some more scriptures that will help us understand the answer.

[Isa 9:6-7 ESV] 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.

I have been serving in some way with Take the city since October 2013. I spent a lot of time on the prayer team in the beginning and encountered God’s heart for the city in a life changing way. When the teams came back and shared testimonies, it was always fun to see that our prayers coincided with some of their testimonies in special ways. More recently I have had the privilege of leading a team to a nursing home where I used to be an employee. I used to pray over the facility every day, and it was such a miracle to see an old friend who lives there give his life to Jesus on one of our outreaches a year later. God sure has a way of answering prayers. And Take the City is an answer to so many prayers that have gone up here.
