Prophecy – Jesus Christ’s Ancestor Is David
Date: 627-585 B.C.
“The days are coming”, declares the Lord, “when I will raise up to David, a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land.” Jeremiah 23:5 (NIV)
The prophecy in Isaiah 11:1 indicates that the Branch, a righteous king, would be the descendant of King David. The physician Luke tells us that Jesus the Christ – the Messiah – is that descendant of King David. Jesus Christ’s ancestor is David.
