“The Lord said to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.’
If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?” Matthew 22:44-45
The Pharisees agree that the Messiah is a human son from David’s descendants. Jesus asks them, “if the Messiah is human and called David’s son, why does David call him, Lord?” In these verses Jesus quotes David calling the Messiah, “Lord.” The quote includes a reference to God’s right hand which indicates honour and authority. Jesus proves that the Messiah is also the divine son of God.
