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.” (NIV) Jeremiah 23:5
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.
