This is a GREAT question, and I'm so glad Fr. Podhajky asked it.
This is interesting and it sparks a question which, I'm sure, has an answer but I haven't found the book with it. If Jesus is anointed at the beginning of His public ministry and enthroned at the resurrection-ascension, then the various trials of Christ during His ministry could be likened to the trials of David as Saul, repeatedly, attacked him. What I have not seen drawn out are the parallels to the trials of Christ and the trials of David. Maybe you have already drawn those conclusions and I missed them. Otherwise, where would you start?It seems to me the trials of David would also be a source for a suffering Messiah.Thanks for this blog and many blessings on you and your families.

Thanks for your comment. We've talked about the imagery of the "Davidic
Suffering Servant" and Jesus' Passion in the following posts:
