The biblical basis for Mary’s role as the Mother of Jesus, who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Jesus Christ is the heir of King David, He is the fulfillment of the covenant promises made to David in 2 Samuel 7:1623:5, and repeated to Mary in Luke 1:26-36 [see the chart comparing the promises to David and Mary in the Chart section on the New Testament/ Mary].  Mary’s son rules from the Kingdom of the heavenly Jerusalem.  It is fitting that His mother should enjoy the same role that other Davidic Queen mothers enjoyed, that is the royal office of the heavenly Gebirah.  It is in this sense that Catholics call her “the Queen of Heaven” and not in the pagan sense of that title as it is translated in English and found in Jeremiah 7:1844:171819, & 25; which is a designation for an Egyptian goddess.  Since Jeremiah uses both terms, the Hebrew title Gebirah for the Queen mother of a Judahite king of the House of David, and the Hebrew word “queen” =meleketh for the Egyptian goddess, it is obvious there one does not equate to the other.

Sacred Scripture indicates that the Gebirah assumed a throne along side her son [see 1 Kings 2:19] and exercised her role as counselor [2 Chronicles 22:3] and intercessor to the king [1 Kings 2:13-21.  In times of conquest both the king and his mother represented royal power and both were deposed [2 Kings 24:12].  The Gebirah was clearly the most important woman in the Kingdom of Judah; a king had many wives, but only one mother.  The Gebirah of the eternal Davidic Kingdom of Jesus Christ is Mary of Nazareth.  Upon her Assumption into heaven Her Son placed her in her well deserved place beside His throne as mother of the King of kings.  She appears in this role in Revelation 12:1 ‘clothed with the sun and standing on the moon.  As Christ’s mother she reflects His light just as the moon reflects the light of the sun and she calls all her children in the family of the Church to follow her Son and to do, as she advised the servants at the wedding at Cana, whatever He tells you [John 2:5].

“For the first time in history we have actual objects from the time of David, which can be related to monuments described in the Bible.”

“This is the first time that archaeologists uncovered a fortified city in Judah from the time of King David,” Garfinkel said in a press release. “Even in Jerusalem we do not have a clear fortified city from his period. Thus, various suggestions that completely deny the biblical tradition regarding King David and argue that he was a mythological figure, or just a leader of a small tribe, are now shown to be wrong.”

Editor’s note: This is bad news for Muslims, who deny the existence of any ancient Hebrew presence in the Holy Land.

This is also bad news for the secularists and atheists, since it bolsters the biblical accounts.

And of course, Jesus Christ is the eternal King of the Royal Line that began with King David, the son of Jesse, descended from the biblical Ruth.

No authentic David … no authentic Jesus!

Why do Evangelicals have such a problem with the Blessed Virgin Mary?

Q: Why do Evangelicals have such a problem with the Blessed Virgin Mary?

A: For a bunch of guys who claim to believe only what they can read in scripture, they sure do come up with a lot of “facts” that can’t be found ANYWHERE in the Bible!

They also seem to be totally unable to make any accurate, logical conslusions, based on what the Bible actually says.

For example, in 1st Kings 2:19 we get to see the court of King Solomon at work.

In the Royal House of David, we see that the queen is the MOTHER of the king, and the official job of the queen is to intercede with the king, on behalf of the people.

The late King David’s mom, Bathsheba approaches King Solomon’s throne. Seeing her, Solomon rises, bows, and has a throne set at his right hand for his mom, the queen.

With great respect, he shows the queen to her throne. Then Solomon gives her his undivided attention, listening attentively to all her requests, since both the 4th commandment and the traditions of the royal house require it.

In Luke 1:30 we see Mary and Gabriel:

Luk 1:30 And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
Luk 1:31 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb and shalt bring forth a son: and thou shalt call his name Jesus.
Luk 1:32 He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father: and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever.
Luk 1:33 And of his kingdom there shall be no end.

From this we know that Jesus is both the son of God and the son of David. King of Kings and Lord of Lords. And since Mary is Jesus’ mother, and under God’s rules the mother of the king is the queen, Mary is the authentic queen of the royal house of David, and also the AUTHENTIC queen of heaven.

As such, her official job as queen is to intercede with her son for the needs of people, while Jesus remains the one intercessor with God the Father.

There’s absolutely no conlict with authentic scripture (or authentic Christianity and even, Judaism) here!

The Catholic Church has always clearly understood and taught all of this, while protestants (of late) conveniently ignore it, or even flat out, lie about it.

The Bible does little good if it is not fully understood and properly applied.

Our protestant brethren suffer from a level of confusion that rivals the old Tower of Babel. And it’s their own fault, since even a protestant can see from both scripture and genuine world history that Jesus founded only one Church for the purpose of our salvation … the Catholic Church … and Jesuse promised that his Church would last until the end of time, and that the gates of hell would NEVER prevail against it.

Go figure!
