Episode: “A Messianic Proto-type”
The New Testament refers to Jesus as the “Son of David”—with good reason. We examine how the Old Testament predicted a coming Davidic Son.
Series: “The Warrior King (2019)”
David-like Leadership for Goliath-like times
This series originally produced in 2009, Warrior King: David-like Leadership in Goliath-like Times not only tells the story of King David’s time; but also the story of our own time. With challenges larger than Goliath all around us, we need Bible-based leaders now more than ever. Dr. Jeffrey Seif taught this eight-part series from Israel. David and Kirsten Hart join Jeff in the studio for up-to-date analysis of each program’s teachings. We also get location reports from Chaim Malespin and hear the music of Zola Levitt.

  • 00:56 David: We are so glad you've joined us today
  • 00:58 on "Zola Levitt Presents," I'm David Hart.
  • 01:00 Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart. Jeffrey Seif: Jeffrey Seif.
  • 01:02 Here today to talk about what's in here.
  • 01:07 We're gonna connect the dots between the Old Testament
  • 01:10 and New Testament, and you are gonna love it.
  • 01:13 Kirsten: And we're talking about lineage.
  • 01:14 In the Bible, lineage is very important.
  • 01:17 And Yeshua Messiah came from King David.
  • 01:21 That is important because?
  • 01:23 Jeffrey: Proves he was Jewish. Kirsten: That's good.
  • 01:25 Jeffrey: People forget that, by the way,
  • 01:27 but Zola Levitt Ministries reminds 'em week by week.
  • 01:31 Kirsten: And I'm adopted, so I look at my lineage
  • 01:34 and it's kind of sketchy.
  • 01:36 Where did I come from?
  • 01:37 There's no accident in where Yeshua came from.
  • 01:39 He came right from King David.
  • 01:41 Jeffrey: Yes. David: That's right.
  • 01:42 Right now let's go to our dramatic reenactment
  • 01:44 and teaching from Dr. Seif in Israel.

  • 01:52 male narrator: It was the 8th century B.C.
  • 01:55 The prophet Isaiah was troubled because the kingdom
  • 01:58 had become defiled by godless rulers.
  • 02:01 Surrounded by the ruthless and the wicked,
  • 02:04 he has a vision of a better day.
  • 02:08 He writes of a coming David-like king:
  • 02:11 "And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse
  • 02:16 and a branch out of his roots.
  • 02:19 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him.
  • 02:23 The spirit of wisdom and understanding,
  • 02:26 the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge
  • 02:32 and of the fear of the Lord.
  • 02:36 ♪♪♪
  • 02:45 Jeffrey: You are looking at one of the most fantastic finds
  • 02:50 in biblical archeology.
  • 02:55 In the 40s, a Bedouin discovered scrolls that hit
  • 02:58 the world by storm.
  • 03:01 And you're looking at a facsimile here.
  • 03:04 Actually, I am in the Shine of the Book and here we're looking
  • 03:08 at an ancient book: the book of Isaiah.
  • 03:12 Copied by the sectaries at Qumran many years ago.
  • 03:18 Isaiah was a fascinating personality, and he's worth
  • 03:23 considering when we consider David Melech Yisrael,
  • 03:28 David the king of Israel.
  • 03:30 Though Isaiah himself wasn't part of David's administration,
  • 03:34 actually he wished he was and the reason why is because Isaiah
  • 03:40 made his entrance onto the stage of the human drama during the
  • 03:44 administration of Uzziah, a king who started off good enough
  • 03:49 but a king who went bad.
  • 03:52 He went south.
  • 03:55 Isaiah saw his demise and it's recorded in the book of Kings
  • 03:59 and the book of Chronicles.
  • 04:01 Not only is it recorded but it said as much that Isaiah was the
  • 04:06 historian that talked about the demise of Judah under Uzziah's
  • 04:11 ministration and it's perhaps for that reason when Isaiah
  • 04:16 began his prophetic administration he spoke
  • 04:20 to the pathetic first.
  • 04:22 You can't read the first five chapters of Isaiah without your
  • 04:27 toes curling in your shoes when you hear his harsh invective,
  • 04:32 his diatribe, how that prophet gave voice to a world gone bad.
  • 04:39 Priests, the religious, the secular,
  • 04:42 everyone who was anyone was on the take.
  • 04:46 And against the backdrop of that Draconian introduction,
  • 04:49 the 11th chapter, however, as we see here,
  • 04:52 Isaiah spoke of a coming king, a David-like king.
  • 04:57 We're told in chapter 11: "There'll come forth a rod from
  • 05:01 the stump of Jesse, and a branch will grow from his roots."
  • 05:06 Remember that Jesse was David's father and the Davidic house,
  • 05:11 in effect, was cut down but there will--emerge from
  • 05:15 that a righteous branch-- a righteous one, a mashiach,
  • 05:19 a messianic character.
  • 05:21 We're told here,
  • 05:23 [speaking foreign language]
  • 05:25 the Spirit of the Lord will rest upon him.
  • 05:27 The spirit of wisdom and understanding, counsel, might,
  • 05:30 knowledge, fear of the Lord.
  • 05:32 His delight will be in the fear of the Lord."
  • 05:35 [speaking foreign language]
  • 05:37 The fear of the Lord doesn't speak of trepidation and panic
  • 05:40 as much as it does of respect and because he respects
  • 05:44 the Lord, he respects others.
  • 05:46 Isaiah was chagrined, and why is that?
  • 05:49 Because the kingdom was vitiated, it was defiled,
  • 05:52 beneath the hands of godless rulers.
  • 05:55 He says in 10:2: "They robbed the needy of justice,
  • 06:00 they take what is right from the poor of my people,
  • 06:05 the widows are their prey."
  • 06:07 He goes on in the 10th chapter, verse 2 and 12, he says
  • 06:10 that "people are robbed of their treasuries."
  • 06:12 Again, like our world where the wicked take advantage
  • 06:16 of the weaker.
  • 06:18 Isaiah sees a Davidic-like leader who re-emerges
  • 06:22 even centuries after David.
  • 06:24 And this is this messianic personality.
  • 06:26 We're told here that his delight will be in the fear of the Lord
  • 06:30 and he will rule with justice and equity
  • 06:33 and fairness and goodness.
  • 06:35 Now listen to me.
  • 06:36 We need that kind of godly leadership in our godless world.
  • 06:41 And I am concerned, personally.
  • 06:45 I don't know what you look for in leadership, be it civil
  • 06:49 or religious but personally, individuals that resonate with
  • 06:53 Judeo-Christian ethics really matter to me and when
  • 06:57 I don't see that, I am gravely concerned.
  • 07:03 Isaiah pointed to the day when someone would emerge likened
  • 07:07 unto David and this reflects the fact that among other things
  • 07:11 that the memory of David is alive and may the memory be
  • 07:15 alive in our day as we're with some measured anxiety
  • 07:19 looking into the future.
  • 07:21 May it be your prayer with mine that godly people wield
  • 07:26 influence in our culture to the end that we may be better
  • 07:30 by virtue of their so doing.
  • 07:35 male: And the Lord said, "Woe to the shepherd who destroys
  • 07:39 and scatters the sheep of my pasture.
  • 07:41 Therefore, thus says the Lord God of Israel against the
  • 07:45 shepherd who feeds my people, you have scattered my flock,
  • 07:50 driven them away, and not attended to them.
  • 07:53 Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings,
  • 07:57 says the Lord."
  • 08:04 Jeffrey: Behind me is a scaled version of the city of David
  • 08:09 in Yerushalaim in Jerusalem.
  • 08:12 Actually, here in modern Israel, folks spent a small fortune
  • 08:15 to reconstruct that and it's beautiful.
  • 08:18 I'm told by a friend, Eli Asides, that this site is
  • 08:22 along with Masada one of the most frequented sites
  • 08:25 that pilgrims wanna check into when they visit Israel.
  • 08:29 And they're excited to see it.
  • 08:31 Jirmeyah, Jeremiah, however, looked at this portion
  • 08:34 of the city and he was not a happy camper.
  • 08:36 And why is that?
  • 08:38 Well, he says in the 23rd chapter of his own book--
  • 08:41 Jirmeyah, Jeremiah, is on record saying, "Woe is the shepherds
  • 08:44 who destroy and scatter the sheep."
  • 08:48 Jirmeyah, Jeremiah, saw destruction coming
  • 08:51 upon the city of David.
  • 08:53 Yerushalaim was going to take a hit by the Babylonians,
  • 08:57 and why is that?
  • 08:59 Because Jeremiah says the priests were vitiated, defiled.
  • 09:04 The secular rulers were defiled as well.
  • 09:08 In so many ways, it was a world like our own, that is to say
  • 09:11 there's the pretense of religion and virtue but the world
  • 09:15 had long since abandoned biblical ethics.
  • 09:19 And so it is that Jirmeyah, Jeremiah, went on record saying
  • 09:22 that the sheep are going to be scattered and so they were.
  • 09:28 That's the bad news.
  • 09:29 The good news, however, is that Jirmeyah envisioned
  • 09:32 a good world to come.
  • 09:34 And I'm glad he did, by the way.
  • 09:36 He didn't just leave his constituents despairing
  • 09:38 as we're gonna see in a moment when we look in the Bible.
  • 09:41 Though he himself despaired, Jirmeyah is called the weeping
  • 09:45 prophet, he's so very effusive, emotive, he's weeping, why?
  • 09:49 'Cause he sees this beauty falling apart.
  • 09:52 He's called the lonely prophet as well because this priestly
  • 09:55 prophet was told never to marry and bear children
  • 09:59 because the children were just destined for the slave market,
  • 10:02 if not death outright when the Babylonians
  • 10:05 were going to come and rape and pillage and plunder,
  • 10:08 and come they did.
  • 10:10 Jirmeyah, Jeremiah, as I'd said, saw a bad moon rising over this
  • 10:14 world that sadly is so much like our own but not only that,
  • 10:19 happily however, he telescopes to the future and he sees
  • 10:24 a bright spot beginning to emerge over the horizon
  • 10:28 like the sun rising from the east and displacing
  • 10:31 the prevailing darkness.
  • 10:33 He says in verse 5 in his own words: "Behold,
  • 10:35 the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will raise up
  • 10:38 to David a branch of righteousness."
  • 10:43 We heard in the Isaiahnic passage earlier about
  • 10:46 the Netzer, the branch that will spring forth.
  • 10:49 And by the way, that's why in the New Testament Jesus
  • 10:52 is associated with a city called Nazaret, Nazareth.
  • 10:56 It's named after the same.
  • 10:58 That connection wouldn't have been lost to Jewish people
  • 11:01 in the 1st century of this, the common era.
  • 11:04 In any case, Jeremiah telescopes into the future and he sees
  • 11:09 this Davidic person coming.
  • 11:11 David's been dead for years by the time he speaks and David's
  • 11:15 been dead by--for millennia, but even in the Jewish world today
  • 11:19 we sing "David Melech Yisrael chai vekayam,"
  • 11:22 David the king of Israel lives,
  • 11:25 because the memory lives and why is that?
  • 11:27 Because the prophets kept his memory alive and why is that?
  • 11:30 Because against the backdrop of a decaying world, they saw
  • 11:35 there would be an emergent Davidic-like leader.
  • 11:38 We're told in verse 6: "In his days Judah will be saved."
  • 11:43 And he says under his administration,
  • 11:46 "Israel will dwell securely."
  • 11:48 And then he goes on to speak of this leader and says,
  • 11:51 "And this is the name by which he shall be called:
  • 11:55 Adonai Tsidkenu, the Lord our Righteousness."
  • 12:00 I don't know how you feel but in many ways I'm discouraged
  • 12:05 when I look out--I'm not the wisest owl in the forest--
  • 12:08 but when I look out over my perch, I'm not a happy
  • 12:11 camper when I look at our own culture.
  • 12:14 I see an abandonment of Judeo-Christian ethics.
  • 12:17 I see a pretense of religion but people deny the power of it.
  • 12:22 I find people talking the talk but I find rot and decay,
  • 12:26 and frankly I find it in high places.
  • 12:29 Like Jeremiah and like you, perhaps, I, we, he, look forward
  • 12:33 to the day when we'll see this emergent leadership.
  • 12:37 This series is called "The Warrior King," and we're looking
  • 12:40 for David-like leadership in Goliath-like times.
  • 12:46 May it be that more and more women and men stand up
  • 12:48 for biblical virtue in a world where that virtue is
  • 12:52 in very high demand and very short supply.

  • 14:59 male: "Thus saith the Lord God unto them,
  • 15:02 Therefore will I save my flock and they shall no more be prey.
  • 15:07 I will set up one shepherd over them and he shall feed them.
  • 15:12 Even my servant David, he shall feed them.
  • 15:16 And he shall be their shepherd and I, the Lord,
  • 15:20 will be their God.
  • 15:22 And my servant David, a prince among them.
  • 15:26 I the Lord have spoken it."
  • 15:32 Jeffrey: I'm coming to you from the Kidron Valley.
  • 15:36 To my left, you can't see it, the ancient temple once stood
  • 15:41 and now there's Turkish walls round about it.
  • 15:44 To my right, the Mount of Olives.
  • 15:47 And here in a valley where shepherds used to frequent
  • 15:51 verdant lands but that was yesteryear.
  • 15:55 Behind me is a monument to a name that's not often
  • 15:59 repeated here in Israel.
  • 16:03 It's a monument to Absalom and why he would be remembered
  • 16:07 in a place like this is anybody's guess.
  • 16:11 Because truth be known, he himself is persona non grata,
  • 16:16 and why is that?
  • 16:17 Because Absalom was David's son who sought to kill him.
  • 16:22 He drove David out of his own palace, made the king run
  • 16:26 for his life in the later years of his life as Absalom--
  • 16:30 the name Avi means my father and shalom is peace.
  • 16:36 He has a name connected to peace.
  • 16:38 My father is peace.
  • 16:40 But he gave his father tsuris, truth be known.
  • 16:43 Tsuris, he gave him aggravations as he sought to undermine him.
  • 16:49 David lived in a precarious world.
  • 16:51 This Absalom scattered the sheep, drove David away,
  • 16:56 caused angst in the culture, and you know what?
  • 16:59 When there's bad leadership that comes to power,
  • 17:02 it does much the same.
  • 17:05 David must have been spellbound with grief when he considered
  • 17:10 what had happened.
  • 17:12 Not only his own political dislocation but the fact that
  • 17:16 his own son, his wicked son who killed his brother previously
  • 17:20 by the way, that he has come to power and David
  • 17:24 was not a happy camper.
  • 17:28 Well, Ezekiel remembers this story years later.
  • 17:33 That is to say, the David story.
  • 17:36 And why is that?
  • 17:37 Because Ezekiel inhabited a world much like David did
  • 17:41 in the sense that bad people had come to power.
  • 17:46 In fact, the wound in Judah was irreparable.
  • 17:50 It was not to be fixed.
  • 17:52 Judgment was meted out, and why is that?
  • 17:56 Because wickedness rained from the palace,
  • 17:59 wickedness rained from the pulpit, and wickedness
  • 18:02 was ubiquitous in the pew everywhere.
  • 18:06 And it was not to be fixed.
  • 18:08 So much for the bad news.
  • 18:11 Difficulties notwithstanding, in a world where the righteous were
  • 18:14 disconcerted and scattered, Ezekiel telegraphed out into the
  • 18:18 future and he envisioned that a good shepherd will emerge.
  • 18:23 He says--he lambasts in the 34th chapter these bad shepherds
  • 18:29 that are heaving discontent in the culture but then he goes on
  • 18:33 to say, difficulties notwithstanding, in verse 23,
  • 18:37 and I quote, he says, "I will establish one shepherd
  • 18:41 over them, and he shall feed them--My servant David."
  • 18:48 David was long since dead as of Ezekiel's writing but the memory
  • 18:53 of this imperfect yet righteous sort, he knew what it was to
  • 18:56 repent, he found forgiveness, he was a man after God's own heart.
  • 19:00 Ezekiel says, "We need some of that ruling again."
  • 19:04 Now, arguably, Ezekiel's looking forward.
  • 19:08 His forward thrust to this coming Davidic shepherd
  • 19:11 harks to the messianic era.
  • 19:13 We know that, by the way, because when we look
  • 19:15 in the New Testament in the Matthean Gospel,
  • 19:18 the Matthew text, which was written in a Semitic language,
  • 19:21 originally it opens up;
  • 19:22 [speaking foreign language]
  • 19:26 He's introduced Ben David, Ben Abraham.
  • 19:29 The son of David.
  • 19:31 And we know in the New Testament as Yeshua went about,
  • 19:34 son of David, son of David, well, here Ezekiel envisions
  • 19:37 that a Davidic son will emerge, and we're told
  • 19:41 he will be their shepherd.
  • 19:43 And then in verse 24: "And I, the Lord, will be their God,
  • 19:46 and my servant David a prince among them;
  • 19:51 I, the Lord, have spoken."
  • 19:54 I don't know about you but that's what I want.
  • 19:56 I look forward to the day when
  • 19:58 sar shalom comes, when the Prince of Peace comes.
  • 20:01 But until such time as he arrives, I want David-like
  • 20:06 leadership in Goliath-like times ruling in our land.
  • 20:10 I want that man after God's own heart.
  • 20:14 I believe politicians, frankly, can be very well intended,
  • 20:18 but I believe as well that the road to hell is paved
  • 20:20 with good intentions.
  • 20:22 I want praying people ruling, and you and I need to pray
  • 20:25 for our country, for our culture, because we
  • 20:28 want godly leadership and we need it
  • 20:30 because we need David-like leadership
  • 20:33 in these Goliath-like times.
  • 20:37 Kirsten: This whole series has been about King David
  • 20:40 and it's titled "Warrior King."
  • 20:43 And somehow, Warrior King of David was a prototype of Messiah
  • 20:47 but we don't see much of that warrior, sword-swinging Messiah.
  • 20:53 Jeffrey: No, we don't.
  • 20:55 But there's an internal kind of sword-swinging.
  • 20:58 There's an internal kind of toughness when you think of
  • 21:02 Jesus, the insults he absorbed, not just from outsiders
  • 21:06 but insiders, the neglect, the abandonment, the betrayal.
  • 21:10 There's an inner kind of toughness even in meekness, yes?
  • 21:15 Kirsten: There is and I think everyone was waiting
  • 21:18 for this king to arise, to-- for Yeshua to take over
  • 21:23 military-wise like David did, but we don't see that.
  • 21:27 Jeffrey: Yeah, and we don't see it yet, you know?
  • 21:29 He's--if you look at the end of the story,
  • 21:30 he is coming on a horse.
  • 21:32 When people say, "Oh, you know, those Jews,
  • 21:33 they got it all wrong.
  • 21:35 They didn't understand a triumphant, militant Messiah."
  • 21:40 Well, what, they didn't read Revelation?
  • 21:42 I mean, there is a war to come and he is at the tip
  • 21:44 of the spear to best the forces of darkness
  • 21:48 and to establish a kingdom.
  • 21:50 It's just not yet.
  • 21:52 People are looking for him to come as the boss.
  • 21:54 They have trouble recognizing the cross.
  • 21:57 Two Comings.
  • 21:58 David: I think a word that's going through my mind right now,
  • 22:00 through what you're just saying, is that he forgave
  • 22:03 through all of that.
  • 22:04 He forgave.
  • 22:06 Jeffrey: He surely did and it takes a kind
  • 22:07 of toughness to do that.
  • 22:10 And God is all about forgiveness.
  • 22:12 If you look at the older Testament,
  • 22:13 there is a story about a gracious God there.
  • 22:16 You might have trouble seeing it.
  • 22:18 Some envision God as some angry bear about to club us
  • 22:22 for the things that we've done wrong.
  • 22:24 And people mistakenly opine that the older Testament
  • 22:28 casts that vision.
  • 22:30 There's a gracious God there in the older Testament manifest
  • 22:33 more clearly, to my way of thinking, in the New.
  • 22:36 And that grace extends not just in the pages but through
  • 22:41 the ages, even down to you.
  • 22:44 We're all about wanting to connect the dots to show how
  • 22:47 the Old Testament is the New Testament concealed
  • 22:50 and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed.
  • 22:54 The Old Testament's an arm, the New Testament's a hand.
  • 22:57 And it's about God reaching down with forgiveness.
  • 23:00 David: Amen. Kirsten: That's the word.
  • 23:02 And Isaiah tells us so beautifully about Yeshua,
  • 23:06 about Messiah that would come.
  • 23:09 Jeffrey: Yes, one of the things that fascinates me about
  • 23:10 New Testament Christians is A: they weren't called Christian.
  • 23:13 Number two, they didn't have New Testament.
  • 23:15 They all looked at the book, the older Testament
  • 23:18 and gave voice to Jesus therein.
  • 23:20 That is a Zola Levitt Ministries trademark.
  • 23:23 David: That's right. Stay with us.
  • 23:25 More to come. We'll be right back.

  • 25:03 Chaim Malespin: Here I am at what is
  • 25:05 a scale model of Jerusalem.
  • 25:07 You can come closer.
  • 25:10 And this is the temple, how it used to look.
  • 25:13 Do you think the temple will be rebuilt, the third temple?
  • 25:16 We know Prophet Ezekiel talks about a temple that is built
  • 25:20 which is bigger in dimensions than any temple
  • 25:23 we've ever seen yet.
  • 25:25 We also know there will be a temple not made by hands which
  • 25:27 will come from heaven and it will be the new Jerusalem.
  • 25:30 But I'm excited to say look at the glory that was here for
  • 25:34 years and years until, as Rabbi Jochanan ben Zakkai says,
  • 25:40 "After Yeshua died, no more was there the glory in the temple."
  • 25:44 The doors would open automatically.
  • 25:47 You know what else?
  • 25:48 The red cord they would tie on those temple doors, right there,
  • 25:51 would stay red.
  • 25:53 It would never turn white ever again.
  • 25:55 The stone they would find in the bag, they would pull out
  • 25:57 a stone that's either a white one or a black stone.
  • 25:59 They would never pull out the white stone ever again because
  • 26:03 the atonement had already been brought by Yeshua.

  • 26:32 Jeffrey: The person of David really resonates
  • 26:35 with me personally.
  • 26:38 He wasn't perfect, he had verve, courage.
  • 26:41 I love it.
  • 26:43 He's a picture of things to come in the person of the Messiah.
  • 26:47 Indeed, a prototype of Jesus Christ.
  • 26:52 David: I think--I think there are things in his life
  • 26:54 that we all can relate to, right, yeah.
  • 26:57 Kirsten: And that's what makes him someone to study and
  • 26:59 to learn about and to know that Messiah came from King David.
  • 27:06 Jeffrey: Yes, and I'm so happy you wanna come and study
