Quote for the Week

"In 2 Samuel 7 David proposes to build a house for YHWH, but he is told instead that YHWH will build him a 'house'. Playing on the double meaning of the word 'house', the king's intention to build a physical temple where the glory of YHWH can dwell for ever is trumped, superseded one might say, by the promise that God will give David a son to sit on his throne, a son who will turn out to be God's own son. But how can this be an answer to David's intention, that there will be a permanent place for God to dwell among his people? Only if, in some sense, the coming king will be the reality towards which the Temple will turn out to be a mere signpost. Somehow, the king will be the place where, and the means by which, the living God comes to dwell among his people."
