  • Breaking Open the Word [Psalm 110]
    You are a Priest for ever
    in the line of Melchizedek

    Sunday of the Most Precious
    Body and Blood of Christ, 2016

    Psalm 110 is considered as a royal hymn used for the coronation of Israel’s kings. This psalm also expresses Israel’s Messianic hopes of an ideal king. Psalm emphasizes on Israel’s covenant relationship with God. God is the true king and Israel is God’s possession. ‘The right hand of God’ mentions in the psalm signifies that God is on the side of the oppressed, enslaved, marginalized and brokenhearted. God stands by his people; people are partners of God to establish justice in the world. ‘The footstool’ refers to the Ark of the Covenant, God’s governing presence with his people. All nations will come to acknowledge God’s authority over all that exists.
