Return to the previous - Part 37: "Jesus never sat on David’s throne as God declared"
The Jews were believing that the Messiah would descend from David and destroy the Romans, yet Jesus did not accomplish this.
Psalms 18:50 “He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing love to his anointed, to David and to his descendants forever.”
Psalms 20:6 “Now this I know: The LORD gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand.”
Psalms 28:8 “The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.”
Psalms 84:9 “look on our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one.”
The Jews desired to kill Jesus to prove he was the false messiah, because they expected the messiah to have a victory over the Romans. He was also charged with blasphemy.
John 1:11 “He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.”
John 18:36 “Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place."
The prophet David was anointed, and was a politico-religious leader, and he was victorious over his enemies (See 2 Samuel 8:6 , Psalms 144:10 ). David himself slaughtered thousands of his enemies (See 1 Samuel 27:9 ). The Jews expected another Messiah like David to descend from his lineage.
