Verses 1 and 4 of Psalm 110 are among the Jewish scriptures most often quoted by the early Christian writers, with no less than thirty-two references and allusions recorded in the New Testament. Yet this book is one of the few systematic analyses to appear in any language of the early Christian interpretations of this important psalm.David M. Hay first surveys the history of the interpretations of ancient Judaism and early Christianity. By scrutinizing the texts of early Christian quotations and allusions, he determines what form or forms of the psalm's text were current. He then offers a detailed analysis of the Christian interpretations, both biblical and nonbiblical, up to the time of Justin Martyr (ca. 150).The popularity of Psalm 110 stemmed partially from prior Jewish messianic interpretations as well as from Jesus' own use of it, but Hay's conclusions reveal a new, refreshing perspective that explains how this particular psalm was instrumental in shaping the Christology of the New Testament.
