Minor Prophets: Christ as the Real David

“In that day I will raise up The fallen tabernacle of David, And I will wall up its breaches And raise up its ruins And build it up as it was in the days of old” (Amos 9:11)
“But He said to them, Have you not read what David did when he became hungry, and those who were with him; how he entered into the house of God, and they ate the bread of the presence, which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, except for the priests only?” (Matthew 12:3-4)

In the Minor Prophets, God speaks to His people of the restoration of David’s kingdom and the coming of David (Hosea 3:5; Amos 9:11). This is fulfilled in the Messiah, Jesus Christ, who is not only the son of David (Matt. 1:1), but the real David (12:3-4). As believers living in the church as God’s kingdom, we should know Christ as our King, the One with the key of David (Rev. 3:7), meaning that all authority has been given to Him!
