In this episode, Nicole unpacks Jesus' authority on earth through the fullness of David’s heart in Matthew 22:41-46 and Psalm 110.

In Matthew 22:41-46, we see the Pharisees relentlessly asking Jesus questions to trap him. However, Jesus turns the tables on them prophetically and profoundly through Psalm 110.

Jesus reveals to them that he fulfills any prophet, priest, and king of the time. David was just a shadow of what was to come. Jesus was continually moving his life towards a sacrificial end and ushers in a whole new way of life.

In this episode, Nicole covers:

1. Why Jesus quotes David’s psalm when speaking to the Pharisees (Psalm 110)
2. What Matthew 22 reveals about Jesus (Matthew 22:41-46)

Principles in this Passage of Scripture:

1. Jesus is not only your savior, but he dwells within you. You have access to the wisdom, knowledge, and purposes of Christ.
2. God himself will reveal more of himself through you. Not only is he our savior, but our leader, teacher, and friend.

Question to ask yourself: Do you allow God to reveal himself through you?

Next Week we will look at the story of Jonah!
