Jesus’ is a descendant of King David through Joseph, his adopted father, and possibly also through Mary. He is in line for the throne.. When the angel visits Mary, to tell her she will have a son, the angel tells her: “.. you shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there will be no end."

David wrote half of the Psalms we hear in Church. Draw King David, with a harp, and in his mouth, what he could be singing to God. Look up a Psalm from the Bible. Rewrite it in 3 verses in your own words. DO NOT COPY IT OUT!! Psalm 101 Written by David I will sing of your love and justice; to you, L ORD, I will sing praise. I will be careful to lead a blameless life— when will you come to me? Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the L ORD.
