Today we dive into one of the most important Psalms! Psalm 2 points us to the reign of our glorious Lord and King, Jesus Christ! It points to the destinies of those who submit to Him and those who reject Him. Join us!
DISCUSSION AND STUDY QUESTIONS:
1. The podcast mentions that Psalm 2 classifies people into two groups. What are those groups?
2. Psalm 2 talks about the Davidic King. The podcast mentions that there is a near fulfillment and a far fulfillment. What are they?
3. Verse 2 mentions the anointed king. According to the podcast, what is this word? How is it also used in biblical literature? Thus, who is this psalm really pointing to?
4. This psalm is cited in the New Testament several times. Look up the following passages. How to they use this psalm? What are they teaching?
a. Acts 4:25-26
b. Acts 13:33
c. Hebrews 1:5-6
d. Hebrews 5:5
e. Revelation 2:26-27
f. Revelation 12:5
g. Revelation 19:15
5. Now that we’ve established that this psalm is pointing to the Messianic King and His kingdom, why do you think this psalm occurs so early in this book?
6. In verse 3, why are the people angry about being brought before this king?
7. How does the Lord respond to them in verse 4? How does this verse strike you? Why does the Lord has such a tone?
8. Look at verse 7, “who” is speaking to “whom”? How does this help us understand the nature of the Trinity?
9. Verse 7 also talks about the king being “begotten”. Look up Acts 13:33-34. When does Paul say that the Son was “begotten”? In light of Psalm 2 and Acts 13, what does the term “begotten” point to?
10. What is given to the king in verse 8? What does this mean for the destiny of all of humanity?
11. What does verse 9 say about the destiny of those who reject this king? What does it look like to reject Him?
12. How are we to respond to this king in verse 12? What does the word “homage” indicate? Does your life reflect this principle? Are there ways you can do more “homage” to the Son?
13. What is the promise that this psalm ends on? In light of the fact that this psalm is looking to the future, what kinds of blessings do you believe are in store for these people?
