The Promised King and Temple-Builder
This is a record of the ancestors of Jesus the Messiah, a descendant of David and of Abraham:
But he was a prophet, and he knew God had promised with an oath that one of David's own descendants would sit on his throne.
1 Kings 8:16
'From the day I brought my people Israel out of Egypt, I have never chosen a city among any of the tribes of Israel as the place where a Temple should be built to honor my name. But I have chosen David to be king over my people Israel.'"
Then I said, "O LORD, God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps his covenant of unfailing love with those who love him and obey his commands,
I will love him and be kind to him forever; my covenant with him will never end.
The LORD swore an oath to David with a promise he will never take back: "I will place one of your descendants on your throne.
And I will make a covenant of peace with them, an everlasting covenant. I will give them their land and increase their numbers, and I will put my Temple among them forever.
