Tower of David

Jesus in the Lap of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Sagot natin sa banat ni Ingkong (Presiding Minister of Ang Dating Daan)
Sabi kasi ni Ingkong ang mga katoliko daw ay humihingi ng panalangin sa isang "TORE". Nabasa niya ito sa Litaniya ng MahaL na Birhen...

wokeiz ito sagot natin...

Why Mary called "Tower of David"?

We know that Jesus the son of Mary is a descendant of King David. Pero and sumunod na mga hari sa hanay ni David ay hindi na matitino (David was also committed sin).
But God promised this kingdom will be perfected


1 Chronicles 17:12-14 (New International Version)

12 He is the one who will build a house for me, and I will establish his throne forever. 13 I will be his father, and he will be my son. I will never take my love away from him, as I took it away from your predecessor. 14 I will set him over my house and my kingdom forever; his throne will be established forever.' "

Dahil ang mga successor ni David ay hindi matitino it means the kingdom is not perfect

Sino ang mag-peperfect sa Kingdom ni David???

saGot: walang ibA kundi si Jesus...

Si JeSus bah talga?

Sagot: YES... here's the evidence...


Matthew 1:1-20 (New International Version)

Matthew 1
The Genealogy of Jesus
1A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham:
2Abraham was the father of Isaac,
Isaac the father of Jacob,
Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,
3Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar,
Perez the father of Hezron,
Hezron the father of Ram,
4Ram the father of Amminadab,
Amminadab the father of Nahshon,
Nahshon the father of Salmon,
5Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,
Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth,
Obed the father of Jesse,
6and Jesse the father of King David.
David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah's wife,
7Solomon the father of Rehoboam,
Rehoboam the father of Abijah,
Abijah the father of Asa,
8Asa the father of Jehoshaphat,
Jehoshaphat the father of Jehoram,
Jehoram the father of Uzziah,
9Uzziah the father of Jotham,
Jotham the father of Ahaz,
Ahaz the father of Hezekiah,
10Hezekiah the father of Manasseh,
Manasseh the father of Amon,
Amon the father of Josiah,
11and Josiah the father of Jeconiah[a] and his brothers at the time of the exile to Babylon.
12After the exile to Babylon:
Jeconiah was the father of Shealtiel,
Shealtiel the father of Zerubbabel,
13Zerubbabel the father of Abiud,
Abiud the father of Eliakim,
Eliakim the father of Azor,
14Azor the father of Zadok,
Zadok the father of Akim,
Akim the father of Eliud,
15Eliud the father of Eleazar,
Eleazar the father of Matthan,
Matthan the father of Jacob,
16and Jacob the father of Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.

17Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.[b]
The Birth of Jesus Christ
18This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.

Luke 1:32 (New International Version)

32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,

See? Jesus the Son of the most High then Jesus is GOD! and we all know that God is perfect.

Dahil ginawang perfect and kaharian ni David through Jesus but this cannot be done without the "FIAT" of Mary

We all know that Jesus is KING....

When he (Jesus) took flesh from Mary (without Mary Jesus couldn't have a flesh)

So this King (Jesus) tumahan sa isang babae (womb of Mary)... Therefore the king was in the womb of Mary

That's why we call Mary tower of David because she bore the King of kings in her womb. We know that the King has kingdom. right? So, masasabi natin na si Maria ay isang kingdom (symbolic)

And every Kingdom has palaces...and palaces has its towers..dbah?

What's the function of its towers???

Sagot: Para magbantay kung merong panganib na darating sa kaharian...

Ganyan din si Mary at the same time siya ay tore para bantayan niya ang kanyang Anak (Jesus)
Just like our own mother nung tayo ay nasa sinapupunan pa nila ay nag-iingat talaga sila pra hindi tayo malaglag (o makunan)...dahil ang gawain o function ng isang tower ay to take care (to announce or to warn) the kingdom.
Para hindi masakop at sirain ang nasa loob ng kaharian.

This kingdom is the Body of Christ according to St. Paul


Ephesians 5:23 (New International Version)

23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.

and this kingdom (church) will not be perish or will destroy...

Matthew 16:18 (New International Version)

18And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

Bakit hindi na ito mawala o will be overcome by the gates of hell??

Sagot: Because this kingdom is already perfected by Christ

Tower of David is one of the titles given to Mary... not literally Mary is a tower but she is the tower of her Son when Jesus still in her womb.
