  11. Psalm 94 : 1 -23 See Doctrine

    notes-and-sketch-icon SEE NOTES AND SKETCH : Psalm 94:1-23

    Questions
    1. Why would Messiah fulfill a psalm?
    2. How would Messiah fulfill a psalm? In what sense are they in need of being fulfilled?
    3. To what degree did the faithful praying and requests of Israel determine the vocational role and actions of the Messiah?
    4. Why would Israelites praying effect the shape/form that Messiah took?
    5. How would Messiah “share” the role of the Israelite speaker of the psalms? What kind of interplay is there between the words originally prayed by Israelites and the way(s) these words were prayed/walked out by Messiah?
    6. Are the psalms extended beyond their original context when they are incorporated into communal, temple worship? 
      1. Yes. The author often composed psalms that are written in the first person with the express aim of it being sung by Israel communally in the temple. The very genre of “temple music” will extend the original context of prayers prayed in the first person.
    7. Post-First Temple Exile, and during proto-canonization, when the collection of psalms is basically being set, to what extent does participating “in Israel” as an Israelite include praying/singing the psalms?
      1. To be a faithful Israelite post-exile is to be keeping the flame alive. The Exile is a disaster, and the threats of assimilation and disappearance as a people loom large. All that is required for these threats to succeed is for you to do nothing. The psalms, historically associated with the temple of Yahweh become a means for the community of Israel, scattered in the exile, to focus their devotion on the hope that they would be able to return to the state of God dwelling in the land with them, him being their God (i.e. occupying and being locally present in the temple in the land), and Israel being his people (i.e. them occupying the land and being locally present in the land to enjoy him). The psalms gradually become a more central means for Jewish communities to express their deepest longings that the hope for a return would be fulfilled: a return of God to his now destroyed and abandoned house, and a return of the people to the land he swore to their fathers.  They sing the psalms for joy. They pray the psalms and await Yahweh’s answer to their historical plight. They weep to the psalms and keep hope alive. The process of the Exile winnowing the people of Israel is slow, cruel, and degrading. But those who hang on, those who keep hope alive, increasingly become those who pray, sing, and contemplate the psalms.
