God's Kingdom and God's Son: The Background in Mark's Christology from Concepts of Kingship in the Psalms

CHAPTER TWO
ANOTHER VIEW OF KINGSHIP
- FROM THE LATER CHAPTERS OF ISAIAH

1. Introduction
In the last chapter, we examined the characteristics both of the kingship of Yahweh and of that of the Davidic king, as expressed in the Psalms, and summarized the close relationship between the two. These themes also occur in many other books of the Old Testament, especially the prophets, and it will be helpful to earth our findings in the Psalms by relating them to at least one other Old Testament book, before moving on to consider how the concepts of the kingdom of God and the Messiah were used in Early Judaism and in the New Testament.In this chapter and those on Early Judaism, we shall concentrate our attention on three aspects:
a. how the characteristics of divine and human kingship noted in the Psalms are expressed and developed, whether or not 'kingship' is mentioned;
b. quotations of or allusions to the psalms of Yahweh's kingship and the royal psalms (and related passages); and
c. places where God's kingship is linked to that of an individual earthly ruler.

Rather our concern is to examine the themes of God's kingship/kingdom and Davidic (messianic) kingship, and note the connections between them within a broad historical framework, to determine the stock of ideas available to those living in the first century A.D.

As our other witness in the Old Testament to concepts of kingship, we have chosen the later chapters of Isaiah.1 These chapters (40-66)

1 In connection with this study, I prepared sections on the whole of Isaiah, as well as
Jeremiah and Ezekiel, all of which speak of God's kingship as well as Davidic (or mes-
