Monday, Psalm 2:7-8, Psalm
Our main text for this week is Matthew 3:1-17. When Jesus comes up out of the waters of baptism, the voice of God says, “This is my son. I love this kid!” (OK, that’s my translation, but I think it’s accurate)
This is a quote from Psalm 2. The Psalm, however, is talking about the King of Israel, not necessarily a prophecy of the coming Messiah. In other words, Matthew is showing us that Jesus is the new king of Israel. This was his coronation ceremony!
