Many people feel that the purpose of the book of Psalms is to provide us with poetic songs for praising and worshiping God, or with comfort in times of trouble. Which is true… they can be used for such. However, the book of Psalms is FAR MORE than that! There is something extraordinary God has hidden in the book of Psalms concerning our precious savior Jesus Christ!
In our study, How To Study The Book Of Psalms For Deeper Meanings, we begin with some thoughts from Psalms 119 (the longest chapter in the Bible!). Then, while drawing lessons from various Psalms, we center our attention on the following passage:
Psalms 118:22-24 (KJV)
118:22 The stone [which] the builders refused is become the head [stone] of the corner.
118:23 This is the LORD’S doing; it [is] marvellous in our eyes.
118:24 This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Bible students generally recognize that verse 22 is prophetic of Jesus Christ. But do the verses that follow it switch subjects? Within this study, we will carefully consider the surrounding context, and delve into this SPECIAL day of rejoicing that the Lord hath made!
The book of Psalms actually gives us a far more in-depth understanding of Jesus’ sacrifice and suffering (what He went through to purchase salvation) than what the four gospels portray.
If you feel it is precious to read about what Jesus went through to bring forth redemption, as shown in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, why stop there? Why limit yourself to a condensed version of the picture of the plan of salvation and of what Christ has given in our behalf? For a fuller picture of Christ’s sacrifice, learn what the Psalms teach us!
