Is Jesus God? Part 37: "Jesus never sat on David’s throne as God declared"

Return to the previous - Part 36: "Jesus Sinned"

The Bible states that Jesus would sit on David’s throne FOREVER. If Jesus was God, then does this mean God couldn’t do something? Is Pontius Pilate superior?

Psalms 132:11-12  “The Lord swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke:  “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne. If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever.” (See also Psalm 132:12 )

In Jeremiah, it is said that none of the descendants would ever sit on the throne of David.  Jesus came from the cursed line of Jeconiah, from David, and thus, would never sit on the throne of Israel.

Jeremiah 22:30 Thus says the LORD, ‘Write this man down childless, A man who will not prosper in his days; For no man of his descendants will prosper Sitting on the throne of David Or ruling again in Judah.'" 

Since Jesus descended from the cursed Jeconiah, he never sat on David’s throne. If only Jesus had descended from a separate line, he could’ve sat on the throne.  Jesus never reigned over the house of Jacob or sat on David’s throne (Lloyd Graham, Deceptions and Myths of the Bible, p. 298) Instead, Pontius Pilate sat upon the throne judging Jesus!
