The King on Mt Zion (Ps 2)

The rulers of the world have always opposed the Messianic king. They tried to overthrow David; they tried to kill Jesus. Now they try to prevent his kingdom from being established. But all their plans are doomed to failure. What folly to oppose the king whom God has appointed!


Prepare the way of the Lord! (3:4-)

John the Baptist called on his hearers to prepare for the coming of the Lord in judgment and salvation. Many of them were trusting that their descent from Abraham gave them a special status before God. But John called for supernatural and radical repentance.
