Thoughts from The Theocratic Kingdom: Proposition 81

Posted On March 25, 2016

In Proposition 81, George Peters states:

“This Kingdom, thus covenanted, belongs to Jesus as “the Son of Man.”

The title of Son of Man is a fascinating study that all should embark upon and understand. The covenanted Kingdom is promised to the seed of David. Jesus, as the Divine-human, is the Son of God and the Son of Man and thus qualifies to be both Divine and to occupy the throne of David.

The most notable observation Peters presents in Proposition 80 is the following:

“The Son of Man is fully identified with the re-establishment of the Davidic throne and Kingdom by covenant and promise. In view of this, therefore, it was eminently proper of Jesus to employ this phrase in the manner recorded. If the reader turns to Psalm 80, he will find David referring to the elect Jewish nation brought out of Egypt, with whom God is angry so that it is overthrown and placed in the hands of the heathen. Imploring the Divine interposition and recalling the covenanted promises, he prays with faith and hope in the future restoration of the nation: ‘Let Thy hand be upon the Man of Thy right hand, upon the Son of Man whom Thou madest strong for Thyself.'”

Jesus referred to Himself as the “Son of Man”, a title that when used was not lost on the Jewish people. They knew passages such as Psalm 80 which describe the Son of Man as One who will come to sit on the throne of David.” Jesus equated Himself with God and as the One promised by the prophets and through the covenants, the promised Messiah. This is a title dripping with importance and meaning. As the “Son of Man”, Jesus will inherit the Davidic-Theocratic Kingdom.
