Davidic Covenant

The Davidic Covenant, found in 2 Samuel 7, establishing David and his lineage as the rightful kings of Israel and Judah and extends the covenant of Abraham to David's lineage.

The Davidic Covenant is an important element of Jesus' claim to be the Messiah. Jesus, by his death and atonement created a New covenant of faith in which Gentiles as well as Israelites could participate, and under which God promised to grant the faithful eternal life.
