The same can be said of him as king. But we rarely see him as priest. This is a mistake as there is a tremendous theological connection. I Samuel says. David ate holy bread. What's intriguing is that it was with the blessing of a priest. What's more intriguing is that he was the future king of Israel. Even more is how he partook of it with his men. And how they had kept themselves pure and consecrated for days prior to their arrival. David knew the bread was for priests only. His men knew it was for priests only.
The priest knew it was for priests only. Yet something felt right about it. Something was right about it. Even with God. The bible says that the showbread was "removed from the Lords presence" just for David. This was no ordinary man. No ordinary anointing.
No ordinary call. Had he partaken in an unworthy manner he would have fell dead the moment he ate the bread. Jesus goes on to say something that gives us more insight into the matter. In Matthew 12, after he mentions David and his men eating the bread, Jesus says. This is significant because by saying this Jesus is connecting the innocence of David with the innocence of the priests and ultimately with the innocence of the Apostles. What is important here is that the only way David can be innocent is if he is a priest and We Will Not Forget - David T.
Clydesdale - How Great Thou Art (Vinyl connects his innocence specifically to that of a priest. Lastly, in II Samuelafter David was anointed and made king, he brought back the ark of the covenant and he sacrificed an ox and a fatlling. Sacrifices, as we know, were done by priests and In this passage we not only see David sacrificing but also wearing a linen apron which is just what a priest would wear. Eating holy bread. Wearing a linen apron.
Building temples. Yes, I think he was a priest. I know he wasn't a Levite. But neither was Jesus. Or Melchizedek. In conclusion, one of the most beautiful theological messages of this passage has to do with the bread and the fact that everyone that was with David partook.
I believe this is symbolic of the body of Jesus. The bread is Jesus. A shadow of something is not the thing. It is attached to the thing and is revealed by the light. The law has a shadow of the "good things coming".
The good thing coming was the cross of Christ. This is a direct statement speaking of the sensus plenior. It is a picture of Christ hidden in the law. Jesus uses an indirect reference to Uzziah and Azariah as a combined picture of himself. Uzziah represents Christ in the flesh, and the intentional mistake of calling him Azariah, tells us in the language of prophetic riddle, that he would be made the high priest in resurrection.
Jesus references a narrative of Ahimelech, but replaces him with his son. Ahimelech represents Christ in the flesh as he was killed for helping David, and his son replaces him as high priest in a picture of resurrection. The object of the riddle is the Messiah. He is the man in all the riddles.
God rested on the Sabbath not because he needed rest, but as a prophecy of his future rest offered to mankind. He gave the law, not because God needed LP to enforce, but as a prophetic riddle revealing the nature of God. Any particular law is only a partial revelation of God's character. But God's character is more important than the law which reveals it.
When the picture of his character conflicts with his character, his character wins out. Jesus is the source of the future rest. The law is a picture of Jesus. Since Jesus is present, the picture has no more effect. This is the thesis statement of the book of Hebrews.
What is past is the shadow, Christ is the reality. The answer then revolves around how does the bread represent the cross? Jesus said that the bread wash his body given for us. The bread hidden in the temple would be made available to all through the cross.
As such, the picture of David eating the bread, and giving it to his men is a prophetic picture of the last supper, and even more so of the cross, wherein we partake of his flesh, and through which we enter into his rest. The question accuses David of acting dishonestly, but does so through concept feeding in the question.
It should We Will Not Forget - David T. Clydesdale - How Great Thou Art (Vinyl removed from this question and asked directly so that it can be addressed without distracting from the main point here. It seems like Jesus's invocation of Abiathar is the key to his statement. This means we need to consider the whole story. Ahimelech and 84 other priests were slaughtered shortly after giving the bread of the presence unlawfully to David 1 Samuel The way Jesus says that Abiathar gave the bread to David implies that Abiathar was complicit in the unlawful activity of Ahimelech, yet only Abiathar was shown mercy, and I believe this is why Jesus mentions him by name.
This gets more profound when we consider that Ahimelech actually spoke in David's defense before Saul. Though everything he said of David was true, he counted on his own words and his own position to defend him from Saul.
Ahimelech appreciated with David's character and sympathized with his cause but did not join him. Remember 1 Samual records that Ahimelech came to David trembling. He knew he was in danger, but chose to go it alone. On the other hand, Abiathar fled to David and counted on the Messiah himself for his protection, and he received mercy, LP.
In the Old Covenant, harvesting on the Sabbath was a refusal to receive God's blessing. God provided Manna for the Sabbath on the 6th Day, and this pattern was intended to persist after manna ceased to be provided. So when Israel was rebuked for going out to gather on the 7th day in the wilderness Exodusthey had provision and instruction to store manna on the 6th day. On the other hand, the disciples, like David's group, were not without provision because of lack of faith or because of lack preparation but because of circumstance.
As the "Lord of the Sabbath," Jesus is free to enforce the Sabbath in accord with God's desire for mercy Lukeand furthermore, he is free to defend those who seek his protection in the same way that David protected Abiathar and his own men Mark There are two major dispensations in the Bible. One is the law of Moses under which only the Levitical priesthood could eat the bread in the temple.
The other is Grace which has the priesthood of Melchizedek in a shadow as the High Priest and Jesus as the anti-type or the high priest. Now look at Jesus's speech in heaven before he becomes a man. Heb KJV 5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. Jesus came to take away the first covenant that he may establish that one of Grace. Under the law, there were conditions. If a man fulfilled the conditions of the law, he could obtain righteousness but this was not possible for all sinned and fell short. The law and its requirements made nobody perfect.
The only other way was to obtain this righteousness by faith like Abraham and not by fulfilling the conditions of the law. Jesus and David by not observing the ritual of the law and it's ordinances are in effect showing allegiance to the new covenant of grace where righteousness is by faith and not observance to the law. David is declared righteous by faith in a different covenant than that of the law in which the Pharisees put their trust.
Jesus merely illustrated to them that there was a man David who had eaten holy bread against the ordinances of the Law and yet was not condemned. This should have prompted the question "How was that possible actually? Which priesthood would have covered him?
The answer in essence pointed to the possibility of another priesthood by which a man could be saved and not condemned under the law. By doing under the ordnances of the law what should not have been done, Jesus identified himself with that man to whom it was not a transgression to do what the two of them did in Album) fashion.
This would achieve another end as well. It would not only hint to the Pharisees that there was a different rule in operation, but it would also serve the purpose of hinting to them that He who had done as David, also knew as David.
Jesus was pointing to both a question as well as to it's answer, being himself the author of that new way and also it's high priest. Above all he was saying more or less to the pharisees "Your old order was always not it. There is a different way and David and I know that way to no condemnation. Act KJV And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
