Ephesians & Divine Warrior

December 6, 2008

In Eph 4:8 St. Paul writes

This is why it says:
“When he ascended on high,
he took many captives
and gave gifts to his people.”

This comes from Psalm 68 which is a divine warrior liturgy. To what extent is St. Paul portraying Jesus as a divine warrior?

    But Psalm 18:18 says:

    18 When you ascended on high,
    you led captives in your train;
    you received gifts from men,
    even from the rebellious—
    that you, O LORD God, might dwell there.

    There is a difference between receiving gifts and getting gifts.
    Please explain these conflicting verses.
