One of the most intriguing of chapters in all of the Psalter is chapter two. No author or context or musical information is offered in its title. Despite the historical mystery it is the most quoted psalm in the entire New Testament. Luke quotes from it often in Acts (2:36; 4:25-28; 13:33) and the apostle John refers to the messianic dimension throughout Revelation (particularly chapters 6 and 19). If we consider all the references to Jesus as God’s Messiah and Son in the New Testament then quotations of Psalm 2:2 and 2:7 are dozens upon dozens.
In these days we have enjoyed a mini-series in our church on Psalm 119. I remembered during my study that years ago I taught through much of this Psalm during our Wednesday night Bible Study. At the conclusion then, I shared this list. It’s been slightly revised and I share it again with our church family. These lessons are still undeniable based on reading the longest chapter in the Bible, Psalm 119.
