Episode: “Messiah”
Messianic parallels abound in the person of David. In this closing program, we consider their various applications and implications. You’ll walk away saying “He lives!” and, we hope, believing that He lives in you.
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.

  • 00:58 David Hart: We're so glad you've joined us today
  • 00:59 on "Zola Levitt Presents."
  • 01:01 I'm David Hart.
  • 01:02 >> Kirsten Hart: I'm Kirsten Hart.
  • 01:03 >> Jeffrey Seif: Jeffrey Seif.
  • 01:04 >> David: We are in the finale of our series, "Warrior King,"
  • 01:06 and I've gotta say, I love a good finale.
  • 01:10 This story has a great finale, yes?
  • 01:13 >> Jeffrey: It surely does, because the finish opens up
  • 01:16 to a whole new beginning.
  • 01:18 David isn't the end of the story, he's a prophetic
  • 01:22 voice to speak to a great story to come.
  • 01:26 >> Kirsten: And we know that "To come."
  • 01:28 We believe in that "To come."
  • 01:29 >> Jeffrey: The New Testament opens up with the book of
  • 01:32 the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David.
  • 01:36 Here now, we get to connect the dots.
  • 01:40 >> Kirsten: And now, let's go to Israel where King David in
  • 01:43 the dramatic reenactment ponders the future,
  • 01:46 and also more teaching with Dr. Jeffrey Seif.
  • 01:51 >> narrator: Matthew 1, "The book of the generation of
  • 01:54 Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham.
  • 02:01 All of the generations to David are 14 generations.
  • 02:06 From David until the carrying away into Babylon
  • 02:10 are 14 generations.
  • 02:12 And from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ
  • 02:16 are 14 generations."
  • 02:30 >> Jeffrey: Raised in a Jewish family, I can't tell you how
  • 02:32 surprised I was finally one day to open up the, quote,
  • 02:35 "Christian Bible," and discover that it's a very Jewish story.
  • 02:40 The New Testament in Hebrew is the Berit ha-Hadashah,
  • 02:42 the new covenant.
  • 02:44 And while it's new at one level, it's not brand new.
  • 02:49 And the reason why I say that is if you look at the
  • 02:52 New Testament, you have a lot of carry over there from themes
  • 02:57 that resonated in the Old Testament text.
  • 03:00 The Hebrew Bible closes with unappeased longings, unfulfilled
  • 03:05 prophecies, expectations yet to have been realized.
  • 03:11 And the Old Testament comes to a close with a prophecy yet
  • 03:16 fulfilled given to David.
  • 03:17 In 2 Samuel chapter 7, promised was that a special leader was
  • 03:24 gonna come from Davidic lineage.
  • 03:27 And not long after that, we just see a long crumble and tumble as
  • 03:33 Israelite culture falls apart.
  • 03:35 It's racked by political intrigue, unrest, sin, like a
  • 03:40 boa constrictor, wraps itself around the commonwealth and
  • 03:43 squeezes the life out of it.
  • 03:47 The New Testament opens up in the Matthean Gospel, the Gospel
  • 03:50 of Matthew in Hebrew say,
  • 03:52 [speaking Hebrew]
  • 03:56 "The book of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of
  • 04:01 David, the Son of Abraham."
  • 04:05 I'm coming to you from Israel right now, and in this country
  • 04:07 today there are people that would make me feel guilty if
  • 04:10 they had their way.
  • 04:12 "Oh, you're a Jew, you can't believe in Jesus."
  • 04:15 And I could go to Rome, I'd imagine, or other places, and
  • 04:19 there would be Christian people that'd say, "Oh, you can't be
  • 04:22 Jewish."
  • 04:23 And the reason is is because there's a chasm that's alleged.
  • 04:27 There's the Jewish world over here and there's the Jesus world
  • 04:30 over there, and they just don't belong together.
  • 04:35 Well, hear me please.
  • 04:36 If that's true, then Matthew never got the memo, because when
  • 04:41 I read my Bible, the first breath of the story connects
  • 04:48 Jesus to the Jew through the Old Testament's most famous Jew
  • 04:55 arguably, he's one of them, David.
  • 04:57 So many chapters written about him and by him.
  • 05:00 He's right up there at the top of the list.
  • 05:02 I grew up singing his praises.
  • 05:04 [speaking Hebrew]
  • 05:07 "David, the king of Israel, lives forever."
  • 05:10 And there's songs today in Hebrew.
  • 05:12 [speaking Hebrew]
  • 05:15 "King, Redeemer, Savior, and Shield."
  • 05:16 All this harks back to David, David who captured
  • 05:22 the imagination of a people, loved God, sought God,
  • 05:26 a kingdom-builder, carved out space on planet earth where
  • 05:30 God's will and ways resonated, David.
  • 05:36 And we look in the New Testament, we learn that his
  • 05:38 offspring, his most famous offspring, makes his entrance
  • 05:42 onto the stage of the human drama.
  • 05:45 But like David himself, he came in a troubled world.
  • 05:49 And why do I say that?
  • 05:50 Well, Yosef, his step-dad, was rather troubled.
  • 05:54 We read in Matthew chapter 1 that he learns that his
  • 05:58 girlfriend, his fiance, Miriam, has come up pregnant, and he
  • 06:03 knew he wasn't the guy.
  • 06:06 And he's minded to divorce her, but wanting to do it quietly.
  • 06:10 But what happens is he's visited by an angel.
  • 06:13 The word "angel" in Hebrew, "malach," comes from a Ugaritic
  • 06:17 verb which means to send.
  • 06:19 God dispatches a messenger to Yosef, and what does he tell
  • 06:23 him? and I quote, in verse 20, he says,
  • 06:26 "The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying,"
  • 06:29 Yosef, Ben David, "Joseph, Son of David,
  • 06:34 do not be afraid to take Miriam as your wife."
  • 06:40 And he did just that and the rest is history.
  • 06:45 We've been looking at David in this series, but as now--but now
  • 06:48 as we wrap up on David, we wanna look at David's most famous Son.
  • 06:53 We wanna consider Yeshua Jesus, of Davidic extract,
  • 06:59 who personifies all that was good about David and more.
  • 07:03 Inasmuch as David brought about deliverance in the Old
  • 07:06 Testament, so too we learn about one presaged in the synagogue's
  • 07:11 literature who would bring about peace on earth and good will
  • 07:14 toward man.
  • 07:16 And off to the synagogue I go, and it's good to know that the
  • 07:19 synagogue predicted many years before he came the Messiah would
  • 07:22 come and be descended from David.
  • 07:26 ♪♪♪
  • 07:33 >> narrator: "And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was
  • 07:37 sent from God unto a city of Galilee named Nazareth to a
  • 07:43 virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of
  • 07:47 David.
  • 07:48 And the virgin's name was Mary, and the angel came in unto her
  • 07:55 and said, 'Hail thou that art highly favored.
  • 07:59 The Lord is with thee.
  • 08:01 Blessed are thou among women.
  • 08:03 Fear not, Mary, for thou has found favor with God.
  • 08:07 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy whom and bring froth a
  • 08:12 Son, and shall call his name Jesus.
  • 08:16 He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Highest.
  • 08:20 And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father
  • 08:24 David and he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever.
  • 08:28 And of his kingdom, there shall be no end.'"
  • 08:34 >> Jeffrey: In Luke chapter 2, verse 32, Jesus is described
  • 08:39 as, "A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles."
  • 08:45 And then he's noted as being, quote, "The glory of the people
  • 08:50 of Israel."
  • 08:52 Personally, I believe we live in a world where people have come
  • 08:56 to terms with the fact that he's the, quote, "Light to bring
  • 09:01 revelation to the Gentiles," although I'm not altogether sure
  • 09:04 people know what that means.
  • 09:06 But I do believe we live in a world where fallen off the cliff
  • 09:09 is the notion that this Jesus is the glory of the people of
  • 09:13 Israel.
  • 09:15 As for the first point, him being a light to bring
  • 09:19 revelation to the Gentiles, I'm not altogether sure that
  • 09:23 everyone has come to terms with the fact that Jesus can give
  • 09:28 revelation to individuals.
  • 09:30 People need to be born anew, receive him in their hearts,
  • 09:34 and then there's an inner light, if you will.
  • 09:36 And people, when they face vexing circumstances, can hear
  • 09:40 a voice within them saying, "This is the way, walk in it."
  • 09:44 And as people cultivate the Christian life, they can then
  • 09:47 have revelation to give them answers for the vexing troubles
  • 09:51 of the day.
  • 09:52 Some people have a superficial kind of worship of Jesus without
  • 09:56 coming to terms with the nature of what it is to be born again
  • 10:00 and have the Spirit within, and thus to have revelation to lead
  • 10:04 us on into triumph.
  • 10:06 Issues with that aside, I do know that fallen off the cliff,
  • 10:09 as I'd said, is the sense that Jesus is in fact the glory of
  • 10:15 the people of Israel, and this is tragic I believe.
  • 10:19 In Luke chapter 1, verse 26, Luke considers Jesus's origin.
  • 10:26 There's a story here of an angel, Gavriel, who visits a
  • 10:30 Jewess named Miriam.
  • 10:33 Miriam comes from the Hebrew "mar," which means bitterness or
  • 10:37 sorrow, and "yam" which means sea.
  • 10:39 Sea of sorrows.
  • 10:40 Well, it might be an appropriate name.
  • 10:43 She was carrying the world on her shoulders when she learned
  • 10:46 that she, oops, came up pregnant through the agency of
  • 10:49 the Ruach ha-Kodesh, completely unexpected.
  • 10:52 Here's a young girl, and this has all happened upon her, and
  • 10:55 she's perplexed, and she carries it in her heart trying to sort
  • 10:58 out what it all means.
  • 11:00 Well, we're told here that her husband was trying to sort it
  • 11:04 out as well, and as we saw in the previous segment he gets a
  • 11:07 visitation.
  • 11:08 Here this messenger visits Miriam personally
  • 11:13 and tells her what she may well sense.
  • 11:18 In verse 31, "You will conceive in your womb and bring forth
  • 11:22 a Son."
  • 11:23 And then we're told in 32 and 33 that, "He will be great, and
  • 11:28 will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord will give
  • 11:32 him the throne of his father David."
  • 11:35 See, Yeshua is an extension of David.
  • 11:38 "And that he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of
  • 11:42 his kingdom there will be no end."
  • 11:45 If I read the Bible correctly, Miriam is informed that the
  • 11:50 Mashiach, the Messiah for the world is going to come through
  • 11:55 her, inasmuch as David was promised in 2 Samuel chapter 7,
  • 12:00 you can look it up, verses 12 and 13, that the special Son who
  • 12:05 was gonna come and be assigned a throne, and a household, and a
  • 12:08 dominion to reign forever.
  • 12:11 Here you look into the New Testament story, the Christian
  • 12:14 Bible, or what's construed as the non-Jewish Bible to hear
  • 12:17 about the coming over the Savior of the world.
  • 12:20 The way this story unfolds in its own context is that, yes,
  • 12:25 this is the Savior of the world, but this person is the glory of
  • 12:31 the Jewish world.
  • 12:33 Today in Israel, if a rabbi came forth and had 1/1000th of the
  • 12:38 influence that Jesus had.
  • 12:41 If you look at the Jesus story, the genius here is we're taking
  • 12:44 the Jewish Bible and we're getting into the hearts and
  • 12:47 minds of billions on planet earth, and this is facilitated
  • 12:52 through a Jesus experience.
  • 12:55 And Jesus is the principle interpreter, as individuals look
  • 12:58 at the New Testament and get some sense of how to interpret
  • 13:01 the Old Testament by virtue of their so doing.
  • 13:03 If there was any Jewish rabbi in the world today that exacted
  • 13:07 this kind of influence, he would be heralded as the best thing
  • 13:10 since the invention of wheat bread, the best Jewish scholar
  • 13:13 since Moses.
  • 13:14 Jesus was the greatest Jew that ever lived and he came with a
  • 13:19 prophecy attached to him, and that is that he would bring
  • 13:23 revelation to the Gentiles and be the glory of the people
  • 13:27 Israel.
  • 13:29 Now listen, I believe today that we need David-like leadership
  • 13:33 for Goliath-like times.
  • 13:35 Individual need the Son of David in their hearts because he can
  • 13:40 bring revelation.
  • 13:41 That is to say, if you're vexed with challenges, he can give you
  • 13:45 insights and give you a Word so you know how to walk through it
  • 13:49 onward to a glorious and successful future.

  • 15:08 >> Kirsten: Thank you so much for your donations and
  • 15:10 your financial support.
  • 15:11 We were just recently on tour and we were in our hotel, eating
  • 15:15 our breakfast at the buffet, and a lady came up to me and she
  • 15:19 said, "Oh my gosh, I'm just so excited to meet you.

  • 15:39 Now, let's go back to Israel for our dramatic reenactment and
  • 15:42 more teaching with Dr. Seif.
  • 15:46 >> narrator: And when the wise men were come into the house,
  • 15:49 they saw the young child and Mary, his mother, and they fell
  • 15:54 down and worshiped him.
  • 15:57 And when they opened their treasures, they presented unto
  • 16:01 him gifts: gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
  • 16:11 >> Jeffrey: The word "worship" comes from an expression,
  • 16:15 "a ship of worth," and it means to ascribe value to something.
  • 16:20 You might be familiar with the story.
  • 16:22 When these individuals come, these men from the east come,
  • 16:25 and what do they do?
  • 16:27 They give gold, frankincense, and myrrh, and they laid it down
  • 16:31 at the feet of a young King named Yeshua, Jesus.
  • 16:37 The reason why I mention that at this juncture is because we live
  • 16:42 in a world today when individuals similarly come and
  • 16:46 give gifts, and they lay it down at the feet of this Davidic King
  • 16:51 who we refer to as Jesus, or in the Hebrew, Yeshua, the Son of
  • 16:57 David, Ben David.
  • 16:59 He's introduced in the New Testament as the Son of David,
  • 17:03 and we've introduced you to David, or reintroduced you or
  • 17:07 reacquainted you with David in the Hebrew Bible.
  • 17:10 And what did we learn?
  • 17:12 We learned of a story of a young fellow who came out of
  • 17:15 obscurity, little known, disrespected.
  • 17:19 His own father didn't believe in him and his brothers
  • 17:22 disrespected him.
  • 17:23 But difficulties aside, he jumped into the fray.
  • 17:26 He cared about God.
  • 17:28 He cared about taking up Israel's burdens.
  • 17:31 He hated injustice.
  • 17:33 He went after it with verve and vitality.
  • 17:36 And at the end of the day, the Lord used him to carve out a
  • 17:40 kingdom.
  • 17:42 In this series, we've been concerned with David.
  • 17:45 We've referred to him as the warrior king, and over and again
  • 17:49 you've heard me talk about the need for David-like leadership
  • 17:53 in these Goliath-like times.
  • 17:56 That means different things in different contexts.
  • 17:59 For sure, I believe we do well if in government we're led by
  • 18:04 individuals with Judeo-Christian ethics.
  • 18:08 I love those values and virtues and would that that individuals
  • 18:12 were men and women after God's own heart.
  • 18:16 I believe that's a recipe for success, because the extent to
  • 18:19 which individuals are yielded to God's kingdom, it affords an
  • 18:23 opportunity then for those biblical virtues to inform
  • 18:27 decision-makers.
  • 18:28 And I just think the world's a better place when these
  • 18:31 decision-makers have a place in their hearts for biblical
  • 18:35 values.
  • 18:37 David-like leadership in Goliath-like times can refer to
  • 18:40 the smaller culture within the culture.
  • 18:43 There's the broader world culture and then there's
  • 18:46 individual family culture.
  • 18:48 I believe that families need David-like leadership in
  • 18:52 Goliath-like times.
  • 18:54 Would that families learn to live by biblical virtue and
  • 18:57 vision, would that families learned about forgiveness, would
  • 19:02 that families learn the lessons that we find in the life of
  • 19:05 David, we could be spared many pains.
  • 19:07 I believe that families are the better when we take into account
  • 19:12 what we can learn from David's principles, as well as what we
  • 19:17 can learn from his example, both good and bad.
  • 19:20 And then there's individuals.
  • 19:21 I believe that individuals need David-like leadership for
  • 19:26 Goliath-like times, and the way that that happens is by
  • 19:29 individuals inviting the Son of David into their worlds.
  • 19:35 I believe that when we ask Jesus into our hearts, we're asking
  • 19:38 the Son of David to come into our hearts.
  • 19:41 And when we bow the knee to him, we're bowing the knee to the
  • 19:44 reign of the Son of David.
  • 19:45 I believe that we need that, I believe that we need him, I
  • 19:48 believe that we need God, and I believe that there's an offer on
  • 19:52 the table.
  • 19:55 In this series, you've heard me talk about David, and as I bring
  • 19:59 it to a close, I wanna talk to you about you.
  • 20:03 I hope you've been following the series.
  • 20:05 Maybe this is the only program you've picked up on.
  • 20:08 And I want you to know if that's the case.
  • 20:10 Whether you've seen all of it or just this one, I want you to
  • 20:12 know that there's an offer on the table.
  • 20:15 The Hebrew Bible is opened up for all to see and experience
  • 20:19 now because of a Jew named Jesus whom I construe as the greatest
  • 20:23 Jewish man who ever lived, and he was more than a man.
  • 20:27 And what he's done is, through the agency of his life, and
  • 20:31 death, and ministry, and his resurrection, is afforded the
  • 20:34 opportunity for all people to open up the Bible and learn
  • 20:38 about the God of Israel.
  • 20:40 That God loves you.
  • 20:41 He has a wonderful plan for your life.
  • 20:43 If individuals would but receive him, if individuals would but
  • 20:48 embrace the principles found in his book, then they would be
  • 20:51 strong.
  • 20:53 Over and again, we find in the biblical text how God raises up
  • 20:56 individuals, whether it's David, whether it's Abraham, whether
  • 21:01 it's you.
  • 21:02 It's not just about those guys.
  • 21:04 It's about you.
  • 21:05 The same Lord is Lord of all and he bestows his riches upon all
  • 21:10 who call upon him.
  • 21:14 >> Kirsten: We hope you've enjoyed this whole series all
  • 21:16 about King David.
  • 21:18 He was the warrior king.
  • 21:19 And Dr. Seif, you have brought us insight, wisdom, application
  • 21:25 to our everyday life.
  • 21:26 We thank you for that.
  • 21:27 >> Jeffrey: Well, you're kind to say it.
  • 21:29 Of course, it's all in the book, frankly.
  • 21:31 And our viewers, you, as Kirsten had noted, enable us to tell
  • 21:37 this story.
  • 21:38 And it's a story of the past, true, but it's a story about
  • 21:42 someone to come in the future from David's point, and that is
  • 21:45 Jesus.
  • 21:46 And if you need a warrior king in your life to help you get the
  • 21:50 better of your Philistines, let me tell you that wise men still
  • 21:55 seek him and find out he who is the King of the Jews.
  • 21:59 It can make all the difference in your world.
  • 22:03 >> Kirsten: He was a prototype.
  • 22:04 King David was a prototype.
  • 22:05 I mean, he was a real man, but he was a prototype for Messiah.
  • 22:08 >> Jeffrey: Yes he was.
  • 22:09 That's why one of his nametags in the Newer Testament is Son of
  • 22:14 David.
  • 22:15 And even in the Jewish psyche today, he is the quintessential
  • 22:19 deliverer.
  • 22:19 The Israeli flag is the Star of David.
  • 22:23 The star that Jews wear for jewelry, the Magen David, he's
  • 22:26 kept alive in modern culture, someone who lived 3,000 years
  • 22:31 ago.
  • 22:32 >> David: Wow, I love the Star of David.
  • 22:34 Wasn't that on his breastplate?
  • 22:37 >> Jeffrey: Well, no.
  • 22:38 It's assumed--one would assume it because it's called a Star of
  • 22:42 David.
  • 22:43 As a symbol, it makes its entrance into more modern Jewish
  • 22:47 culture in the 1700s.
  • 22:48 You do see that depiction on capitals in the synagogue at
  • 22:53 Capernaum, Kafar Nahum, but it wasn't a universal symbol until
  • 22:59 recently.
  • 23:00 So, I don't know the extent to which the star itself that we
  • 23:04 see today goes back to David, but it's employed to resurrect
  • 23:09 the image of David, the shining star in an otherwise darkened
  • 23:15 constellation.
  • 23:16 And God can shine some light into your darkened worlds too.
  • 23:21 That's the good news from the ancient Jews.
  • 23:23 >> David: That's right. We have more to come.
  • 23:25 Stay with us.

  • 24:19 Seats are available right now.
  • 24:21 Right now, let's go to Chaim Malespin in Israel.
  • 24:31 >> Chaim Malespin: I'm standing here on Mount Gerazim.
  • 24:34 That's right, the Mount of Blessing, right here where 83%
  • 24:38 of the Bible happened in Judea and Samaria.
  • 24:41 As some call it, the West Bank.
  • 24:43 Now, I wanna ask a little trivia.
  • 24:45 What stories in the Bible, what history do you know that
  • 24:49 happened right here in the heartland of Israel, Judea and
  • 24:52 Samaria, aka also known as the West Bank?
  • 24:55 Well, yes, the sun standing still in Gibeon.
  • 24:58 Well, sure, Jacob laying his head on a stone and seeing the
  • 25:03 angels going up and down.
  • 25:04 And so on and so forth.
  • 25:06 The promises that God gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob about
  • 25:09 this land being in our possession until the Oslo
  • 25:13 Accords.
  • 25:14 Just kidding, forever.
  • 25:15 Right down here is the city of Schem, or Shechem, I don't know
  • 25:20 how you pronounce it in English, where Jacob bought land and he
  • 25:24 dug a well.
  • 25:25 We--I've had the privilege recently to go and have some of
  • 25:28 that water from the very well of my forefather.
  • 25:31 I realized when I made my aliyah to Israel, just like Joshua and
  • 25:37 the 12 tribes did from right to the left side of that mountain,
  • 25:41 we are realizing prophecy is still being fulfilled.
  • 25:44 When I see the vines that are being planted here, prophecy in
  • 25:46 Jeremiah is still be fulfilled.
  • 25:48 When the nations, when you come, and see this land, and say,
  • 25:53 "Lord, save your people," you're fulfilling Jeremiah chapter 31,
  • 25:57 verse 6.
  • 25:58 Thank you for fulfilling prophecy.

  • 26:35 through the eyes of the Jews.
  • 26:38 And in this series, "Warrior King," we took a look at David.
