“You are my child, today I have become your Father” (Ps 2, verse 2b). While the Christian expectation of the Messiah is fulfilled in Jesus, the reference to the Messiah in the psalms is attached to the “anointed one” of the Davidic line of kings. While YHWH is king of all creation and reigns with divine power from heaven, his “anointed one” rules on earth under YHWH’s protection and instruction. In this series, we will discuss the figure of the “anointed one” as he appears in the psalms.
