As we think upon the names and titles of the Lord Jesus, we can have a greater appreciation and love for our magnificent Lord. Let us see Him today as the Branch. The prophet Isaiah refers to Him as such. Jesus came forth from the Father just as a branch comes from a tree. We see this same imagery used in the NT as Jesus is the vine, the Father is the gardener, and those who trust in Him are the branches. The imagery of the Branch is a complex one. In the OT Jesus is referred to as the Branch in a four-fold way. We will consider each of these, two this week, and if the Lord tarries His coming, two next week. In each case we will look at two interesting facets of the four OT references to the Branch. One facet is the vision that Ezekiel was given of the beast with four faces (Lion, Ox, Man, and Eagle-- Ezekiel 1:10). Each of these faces represents one of the four meanings of the Branch. Finally, we will see how each the four NT Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) depicts Jesus as the Branch in a slightly different way. So 'put on your think- ing cap,' as the saying goes, and let us see the wonder of Jesus as the Branch. First, Jesus is the Branch of David. This is mentioned in our text above, and by the prophet Jeremiah: Behold the days come, says the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth (23:5, 6; 33:15, 16). These men of God are telling us that Jesus is the King of Israel. As the Branch of David, Jesus came fi'om David's line. One day He will indeed literally and physically reign in righteous- ness as King of Kings! In Ezekiel's vision, one of the faces of the beast was a lion, the king of beasts. This accords with the book of Matthew, in which Jesus is presented as the King of the Jews. Immediately (Matthew 1:1) we have the unique ref- erence to Jesus as the Son of David. Second, Jesus is Jehovah's Servant. Hear now, 0 Joshua the high priest, you, and your fellows that sit before you: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH (Zechariah 3:8-10). This speaks of the Cross of Calvary. Zechariah further tells us that He will remove iniquity in one day---Calvary! As the Servant, He obeyed the desire of the Godhead and went to the Cross. In the last week of Christ's life upon this earth, branches would play a part (Matthew 21:1-9). As one wrote: "It was most appropriate for the populace to cut down branches to car- pet the way of Christ's entry into Jerusalem ...and as the Branch to die on the branch of a tree for man's sin." In Ezekiel's vision, Jesus is the ox, a beast of burden, a servant. The book of Mark presents Jesus as one who works tirelessly, moving from place to place in His earthly ministry; the Servant of the Lord We have thus far consid- ered two of the applications of Jesus as the Branch. Stay tuned, as next week we will look at the other two OT ref- erences. www'ibcwestbrk'0r' C Jewish speaker at Storden Baptist Church Robynne Bruckenstein, a representative of Chosen People Ministries, will be speaking at Storden Baptist Church, Storden, MN (Co. Rd. 5) on Sunday, April 3, 2011 at 9:15 and 10:30 a.m. The topic during the 9:15 a.m. session is "Why Jews Don't Believe in Jesus." During the 10:30 worship, Robynne will speak about "How to Share with Jewish People." Chosen People Ministries has been unwavering in its commitment to bring the Gospel message of salvation in Jesus "to the Jew first and to the Gentile" throughout the world. In stressing the Jewish roots of Christian faith, Chosen People Ministries hopes to make the message of the Messiah more accessible to Jewish people and also to help Christian believers achieve a greater appreciation of the Jewish basis in their own faith traditions. Storden Baptist Church invites the public to attend. For more information, please call the church at (507) 445- 3955. A love offering will be received for Chosen People Ministries.
