The Messianic Psalms: Summary. That the Psalms contain a testimony to Christ our Lord Himself affirmed Lk 24:44 and the N.T. quotations from the Psalter point unerringly to those Psalms which have the Messianic character. A close spiritual and prophetic character as surely identifies others. Christ is seen in the Psalms
(1) in two general character, as suffering (e.g. Psa. 22), and as entering into His kingdom glory (e.g. psa 2.; 24.) Cf Lk 24:25-27.
(2) Christ is seen in His person
(a) as Son of God Ps 2:7 and very God Ps 45:6,7 102:25 110:1
(b) as Son of man Ps 8:4-6
(c) as Son of David Ps 89:3,4,27,29
(3) Christ is seen in His offices
(a) as Prophet Ps 22:22,25 40:9,10
(b) as Priest Ps 110:4 and
(c) as King (e.g. Psa 2., 24.)
(4) Christ is seen in His varied work. As Priest He offers Himself in sacrifice Ps 22:1-31 40:6 Heb 10:5-12 and, in resurrection, as the Priest-Shepherd, ever living to make intercession Ps 23:1-6 Heb 7:21-25 13:20. As Prophet He proclaims the name of Jehovah as Father Ps 22:22 Jn 20:17. As King He fulfils the Davidic Covenant Ps 89:1-52 and restores alike the dominion of man over creation Ps 8:4-8 Rom 8:17-21 and of the Father over all. 1Cor 15:25-28.
(5) The Messianic Psalms give, also, the inner thoughts, the exercises of soul, of Christ in His earthly experiences. (See, e.g., Ps 16:8-11 22:1-21 40:1-17).
