As requested...

This blog contains numerous lengthy posts. Because of that it is often hard to find a particular post.

The following is from a comment box below.

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.

This is a GREAT question, and I'm so glad Fr. Podhajky asked it.

For anybody interested, here's my response:

Father,

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

1. Jesus and the Restoration: The Davidic Suffering Servant

2. The "Footsteps of the Messiah" and the Messianic
Tribulation

3. "The Footsteps of the Messiah": Psalm 89, Isaiah 53 and 1 Peter 2

I hope this is helpful...
