Understanding certain Old Testament chapters is key to knowing God’s plan in human history. One such chapter is 2 Samuel 7. It contains God’s covenant promise to establish David’s house and throne forever. As the Bible unfolds, we see more clearly how God fulfills this promise through Jesus the Messiah. Note the first verse of the first Gospel: “This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham” (Matthew 1:1). Matthew makes it clear that God’s promises have found their fulfillment in Jesus.
