In the name of the Father and of the +Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
David was anointed to be king of Israel. Jesus was anointed to be the saviour of the world. David was anointed by the prophet and priest Samuel. Jesus was anointed by John the Baptizer, the last and greatest prophet of the Old Testament. David was anointed with oil and then the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus was anointed with the greater anointing of water and the Spirit. David was of the tribe of Judah. Jesus was of David’s own line. David was the eighth son of Jesse. Jesus rose on the eighth day of Holy Week. By the Ark eight souls were saved through the waters of the Flood. By the water and blood shed from Jesus’ side all humanity can be saved from the Coming Judgement.
