Mount of Olives Psalms

In 06 Scripture & Theology on 2011/04/22 at 3:35 PM

The early church began to recite the Psalms with new insight, having recognized Jesus as the new David.  They heard Christ speaking through the Psalms.  They recognized the unity between the two Testaments which Jesus had consistently demonstrated.

On the Mount of Olives, Jesus prayed the Psalms of which he was the subject.  “Jesus’ utterly personal prayer and his praying in the words of faithful, suffering Israel are here seamlessly united.” J. Ratzinger
