Mark 12:35-39

Chapter Blog

35 And as Jesus taught in the temple, he said, “How can the scribes say that the Christ is the son of David? 36 David himself, in the Holy Spirit, declared,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
until I put your enemies under your feet.’

37 David himself calls him Lord. So how is he his son?” And the great throng heard him gladly.

One response to “Mark 12:35-39

  1. Christ is establishing His credentials as the Son of God and disputing the facts the scribes were teaching that David was the father of the Christ. Having a man as His father would undermine the Deity of Christ and chip away at His claim to be God.
