Psalm 110 is one of the two most frequently quoted Psalms in the New Testament, yet its purpose and content remain mysterious unless we take into account its Covenant-literary structure.
In the English New Testament, “Judas” and “Judah” as personal and corporate names are a helpful differentiation. But when it comes to Judas Iscariot, his Hebrew name links him “liturgically” to the fate of the kingdom of Israel.
Like the books of Samuel and Chronicles, the book of Kings is so long and detailed that it was divided into two scrolls. But it is clearly a single book, one which begins with the construction of Solomon’s Temple and ends with its destruction. When its major events are taken into account, its internal symmetry becomes more evident.
