What is the davidic covenant and why is it important?
Asked in Jesus Christ
Why is Jesus ancestry important to David?
I doubt if the ancestry question about the coming Messiah was of much concern to David because it was God who had made the covenant with David that a King from his loins would sit on the throne of Judah and at the last time the "greater David", the Messiah would sit on the throne. David could not do a thing about it as God had made the covenant and it was up to God to perform it. But I guess you could say it was a good assurance to David.
Asked in The Bible
What part in the Bible is God's covenant?
God has made several covenants in the bible. The first was with adam, of course. As long as they would obey him i.e not eat from the forbidden tree, they would enjoy direct relationship with him. Then there was the covenant with the patriachs, all in Genesis. Another covenant was made, or a continuation of the old one, depending on how you look at it, with david. This can be found in first or second kings. All christians benefit from this covenant.
