Son Of David

God revealed to Nathan that Messiah would be born in King David line As scripture declares, “When your time comes, and you rest with your fathers, I will rise up after you your descendant who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.” In Isaiah foretold He will reign on the throne of David and over his kingdom. Twice in the gospel of Luke Christ came from the line of David, Where Gabriel said, “The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” Zechariah prophesied, “He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of His servant David, just as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets in ancient times. “ 

 Since Joseph and Mary were both born in king David blood line Mary was the descendant of Nathan While Joseph was a descendant of King Solomon both sons of King David mother of Bathsheba. Since the Jewish scribes kept details records of birth of every child and which bloodlines they came from, and in which it was kept in the temple. In which Apostle Paul recorded in his letter of Romans found in chapter one verse three it states, “Jesus Christ our Lord who was a descendant of David.” Establishing that Jesus was not mythological person but a historical person.    

      Jesus of Nazareth 

While Jesus was born in Bethlehem foretold by Micah and fled to Egypt because King Herod wanted to kill Jesus.  Joseph and Mary returned to Israel and settled in a town called Nazareth foretold by prophets. That Jesus shall be called a Nazarene meaning {for someone who is despised or detestable—for that was how people from the region were often characterized. John MacArthur wrote, 2:23 “He shall be called a Nazarene.” Nazareth, an obscure town 70 mi. N of Jerusalem, was a place of lowly reputation, and nowhere mentioned in the OT. Some have suggested that “Nazarene” is a reference to the Heb. The word for branch in Is. 11:1. Others point out that Matthew’s statement that “prophets” had made this prediction may be a reference to verbal prophecies nowhere recorded in the OT. A still more likely explanation is that Matthew is using “Nazarene” as a synonym for someone who is despised or detestable—for that was how people from the region were often characterized (cf. John 1:46). If that is the case, the prophecies Matthew has in mind would include Ps. 22:6–8; Is. 49:7; 53:3.The town people also identify Him as Joseph’s son where Joseph dwell  Where Jesus was a carpenter for thirty years like His step father.  

Jesus Christ

Gabriel was sent by God and appeared before Mary and told her she going to have a baby, and she going call Him Jesus {Hebrew word is Jehoshua or Yehoshua meaning salvation} and will be called the Son of the Most High. Christ is not Jesus last name. It means anointed one or chose one. The Greek word is Christos occurs 565 times in The New Testament.

Zechariah prophesied,“that Jesus Christ will provide  salvation from our enemies and from the clutches [t] of those who hate us. He has dealt mercifully with our fathers and remembered His holy covenant—the oath that He swore to our father Abraham. He has given us the privilege, since we have been rescued from our enemies’ clutches, [u] to serve Him without fear in holiness and righteousness.” 

 

 Immanuel

Immanuel means “God with us,” a name of Christ found in Isaiah 7:14.The virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Immanuel. The Greek Lexicon defines as the title applied to the Messiah, born of the virgin, Mt 1:23, Is. 7:14, because Jesus was God united with man, and showed that God was dwelling with a man.

  Son of Man  

In got question org they describe the Son Of God, Jesus is not God’s Son in the sense of a human father and a son. God did not get married and have a son. God did not mate with Mary and, together with her, produce a son. Jesus is God’s Son in the sense that He is God made manifest in human form (John 1:1, 14). Jesus is God’s Son in that He was conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit. Luke 1:35 declares, “The angel answered, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.’”

Felt every human emotion ,e.g., He wept at Lazarus grave site resulting from death that sin brought into the human condition. He slept and ate Jesus stated, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Where he ate with the ate the tax collector and sinner. He also invited to Pharisees for a meal. On the cross, He physically thirst He was tempted three times by Satan and was fully tempted in every way yet committed no sin.

Jesus stated. ‘But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven’” (Matthew 26:64). Where Stephen declares these words “Look! I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” Jesus also is interceding on behalf. As scripture declares “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Furthermore, it states “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

   Son of God

Is the second person of the triunity the Father Son in which they have no begging and no end? Jesus is not God’s Son in the sense of a human father and a son. God did not get married and have a son. Jesus has all the characteristic of his Father, omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresence, immutable, holy, righteous, sovereign, love, and merciful. Is the second person of the triunity the Father Son in which they no begging and no end? In got question org they describe the Son Of God as, Jesus is not God’s Son in the sense of a human father and a son. God did not get married and have a son

We can see that the term refers to the majesty, position, and power of Jesus who is holy (Luke 1:35), associated with salvation (John 5:25) that we are to have faith in the Son of God (Gal. 2:20), so as to have eternal life (1 John 5:13), and that he has no beginning or end (Heb. 7:3) All things were made through Jesus Christ. He was God the Father’s agent involved in creating everything in the universe 

 

Lamb Of God

John Baptist uttered these words, “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” Jesus uttered, ”Don’t assume that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.   For I assure you: Until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or one stroke of a letter will pass from the law until all things are accomplished.

 To fulfil, the law and prophets Jesus need to be both God and man at same time. For Him, to be the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. He needed to commit no sin fulfil. The Old Testament mandate found in Ex 12,13; Num 28:4; Isa 53 and needed to be Son of Man experiencing the heartache, infliction, anguish, temptation, and suffering yet commit no sin.  

   Believer Bible Commentary wrote The lamb was a sacrificial animal among the Jews. God had taught His chosen people to slay a lamb and to sprinkle its blood as a sacrifice. The lamb was killed as a substitute and its blood shed so that sins might be forgiven. However, the blood of the lambs slain during the OT period did not put away sin. Those lambs were pictures or types, pointing forward to the fact that God would one day provide a Lamb who would actually take away the sin. Those lambs were pictures or types, pointing forward to the fact that God would one day provide a Lamb who would actually take away the sin. 

All down through the years, godly Jews had waited for the coming of this Lamb. Now at last the time had come, and John the Baptist triumphantly announced the arrival of the true Lamb of God. John Calvin Commentary wrote, Behold the Lamb of God. The principal office of Christ is briefly but clearly stated; that he takes away the sins of the world by the sacrifice of his death, and reconciles men to God.

While on the cross Jesus uttered these words, “ it is finished meaning His atoning work was now completed. Believer  Bible Commentary wrote,” So the Lord Jesus could announce that the way had been provided whereby sinners could be saved. Thank God today for the finished work of the Lord Jesus on the cross of Calvary!” 

It is finished that is, sin is finished, and an end made of transgression, by the bringing in of an everlasting righteousness. It seems to refer to Dan. 9:24. The Lamb of God was sacrificed to take away the sin of the world, and it is done, Heb. 9:26.  

 It is finished that is, his sufferings were now finished, both those of his soul and those of his body. The storm is over, the worst is past; all his pains and agonies are at an end, and he is just going to paradise, entering upon the joy set before him.

 The Lamb of God fulfilled prophecies uttered by John Baptist, and the Old Testament prophets along with the ceremonial law are abolished. Matthew Henry wrote, It is finished that is, all the types and prophecies of the Old Testament, which pointed at the sufferings of the Messiah, were accomplished and answered. He speaks as if, now that they had given him the vinegar, he could not bethink himself of any word in the Old Testament that was to be fulfilled between him and his death but it had its accomplishment; such as, his being sold for thirty pieces of silver, his hands and feet being pierced, his garments divided, etc.; and now that this is done. It is finishedIt is finished that is, the ceremonial law is abolished.  

John Calvin wrote that every thing which contributes to the salvation of men is to be found in Christ, and ought not to be sought anywhere else; or—which amounts to the same thing—that the perfection of salvation is contained in him. Furthermore  he wrote, “ All the sacrifices of the Law must have ceased, for the salvation of men has been completed by the one sacrifice of the death of Christ. Christ, having once accomplished, by a single oblation, all that was necessary to be done, declares, from the cross that all is finished.”

The Greek word It is finished is tetelestai it is finish,

The word occurs in John 19:28 and 19:30 and these are the only two places in the New Testament where it occurs

 With The Word Bible Commentary wrote,” The Greek word translated “It is finished!” {tetelestai} was a familiar word in that day. Bankers used it when the final payment had been made on a debt. Jesus completely paid the debt we owed, and it will be remembered against us no more forever. Hallelujah, what a Savior! 

Jesus gave up spirit and died He determined the time of His death. In full control of His faculties, He dismissed His spirit—an act no mere man could accomplish.
