Luke 20:44

44 David calls him 'Lord.' So how can he be David's son?"

Luke 20:44 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 20:44

David therefore called him Lord
Or, "my Lord", as the Syriac and Ethiopic versions read; or, "his Lord", as the Arabic version. This is the inference from the words before cited ( Psalms 110:1 ) , upon which the following question is asked, how is he then his son?
how can these things be reconciled? in what sense can he be both his Lord and son? (See Gill on Matthew 22:45).

Luke 20:44 In-Context

42 David himself says in the Book of Psalms, " 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand
43 until I put your enemies under your control." ' (Psalm 110:1)
44 David calls him 'Lord.' So how can he be David's son?"
45 All the people were listening. Jesus said to his disciples,
46 "Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in long robes. They love to be greeted in the market places. They love to have the most important seats in the synagogues. They also love to have the places of honor at dinners.
