Sermonette: The Messiah in Three Psalms

The Good, Great, and Chief Shepherd of Psalms 22, 23, and 24

Given 13-Mar-21; 14 minutes

Description: (hide)

Psalms 22, 23 and 24 form a trilogy, each part of of which is a Messianic prophecy that tells a part of the Gospel of God's Kingdom. Psalm 22 focuses on Christ as the Good Shepherd, sacrificing His life for the flock, protecting the helpless sheep from dangerous predators. In Psalm 22, there are twelve details which specifically apply to Christ's crucifixion, beginning with "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me," and ending with "it is finished." Psalm 23, perhaps the most famous of the trilogy, describes Jesus Christ's present function, protecting His sheep, meeting their daily needs, and diligently working to produce character in the flock, fully able to empathize with their weaknesses. Psalm 24 describes the future role of Jesus as the King of Kings, fulfilling the promises He has made to the sheep. As God's people prepare for the Passover, they need to ponder the role of Christ in God's work of salvation—past, present, and future.
