Short Reflection on Today's Gospel (Mark 12:35-37)
New Testament makes comprehensible that Jesus himself is a direct descendant from the line of David's throne. Jesus poses the question to make his hearers realize that the Messiah is more than the son of David. Jesus makes his point in remarkable fashion by quoting from one of David's prophetic psalms, Psalm 110: The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, till I put your enemies beneath your feet. How can the son be the lord of his father? Jesus, who took upon himself our human life for our sake, is not only the son of David, he is first and primary the Son of God everlastingly begotten of the Father. The Messiah King whom God promised to send would not only come from David's line, but would be better than any earthy ruler who came before or would come after. Jesus claimed a dominion that only God can claim – a sovereignty that expands not only to the ends of the earth but to the heavens as well. But the way Jesus would set up his kingdom was far dissimilar from any of the expectations of the tiny nation of Israel. Jesus came to the earth rule heaarts and minds, not lands and entitlements. He came to free people from the worst oppression possible – slavery to sin, Satan, and a world ruled by greediness and lust for power and wealth.
