Matthew 9:27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!”
The Old Testament tells us that the Messiah would be the Son of David. Matthew and Mark both go out of their way to tell us about Mary and Joseph both came from the line of David. David was know as the man after God’s own heart. God made him king over all of Israel. At the end of David’s life God promised him that someone from his line would be king forever. This someone of course was Jesus.
Jesus was not born as king of course, but one day He will return to earth as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16). He will reign forever and ever on His earthly father David’s throne.
If you read about David, you know he was not perfect. Even though he was a man after God’s own heart, he still failed God at time. Jesus was perfect and never sinned against God.
