Hank Hanegraaff, the host of the 𝘉𝘪𝘣𝘭𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘴𝘸𝘦𝘳 𝘔𝘢𝘯 broadcast and the 𝘏𝘢𝘯𝘬 𝘜𝘯𝘱𝘭𝘶𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘥 podcast, continues his study in the gospel of Matthew. As the “Son of David,” Jesus perceived the faith of the blind men—their spiritual sight—and mercifully restored their physical sight. In doing so, Jesus demonstrated that He was far greater than any national king—even greater than David, the quintessential king of Israel. Following the healing of the blind men, Jesus charged them sternly, “See to it that no one knows about this.” Jesus is in no way attempting to hide the miraculous. Already, He has performed wonderous works throughout the region. Instead, what Jesus is instructing the blind men to do is to not proclaim Him as the Son of David. For to do so, would inevitably intoxicate the multitudes to forcibly enthrone Him as a parochial political ruler. Which was not at all the mission of Jesus. What is greater, ruling the entire heavens and earth from God’s very throne, or ruling over national Israel as the “Son of David”? Jerusalem is but a type that has been heightened by the greater reality of the heavenly city where Christ sits on the throne. Indeed, all the types and shadows of the old covenant, including the holy land of Israel, the holy city Jerusalem, and the holy temple of God, have been fulfilled in the Holy Christ. It is toward the antitypical heavenly Jerusalem with Jesus on its throne that we are to direct, as it were, our eschatological eyes, our eschatological sight.
