King-Priest of Psalm 110 in Hebrews

April 9, 2008

Herbert Bateman reviews David R. Anderson’s The King-Priest of Psalm 110 in Hebrews here.

After his introduction (chap. 1), Anderson offers a presentation of “Sacral Kingship” (chap. 2) in the ancient Near East whereby he resolves that “the history of pre-exilic Israel is begging for any clear evidence that any of the Israelite kings was also a king– priest” (p. 27, cf. pp. 279-80). This separation of king from priest becomes a driving force for Anderson in his subsequent analysis of “Psalm 110″ (chap. 3). In summarizing the historical background for Psalm 110, he argues that sometime during David’s reign David addresses the psalm to the Messiah about the Messiah’s ultimate victory, and thereby Anderson determines the psalm to be directly messianic (pp. 61, 280-82).
