The Resurrection

  Then the mysterious traveler claimed that,  "the good news of the promise made to the fathers, that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, 'YOU ARE MY SON; TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU.' (Psalm 2:7) As for the fact that He raised Him up from the dead, no longer to return to decay, He has spoken in this way: 'I WILL GIVE  YOU THE HOLY and SURE blessings OF DAVID.' (Isaiah 55:3) Therefore He also says in another Psalm, 'YOU WILL NOT ALLOW YOUR HOLY ONE TO UNDERGO DECAY.' (Psalm 16:10) For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep, and was laid among his fathers and underwent decay; but He whom God raised did not undergo decay. Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through Him forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and through Him everyone who believes is freed from all things, from which you could not be freed through the Law of Moses." (Entire passage from Acts 13:32 - 39)

    The sons of Korah concurred and claimed, "That he should live on eternally, that he should not undergo decay." (Psalm 49:9) Additionally, of the upright God says, "God will redeem my soul from the power of Sheol, for He will receive me." (Psalm 49:15)

    In David's psalm, the very psalm where it was foretold that the Messiah's hands and feet would be pierced, his garments divided among them and lots would be cast for his clothes, also, so rightly predicted His resurrection in saying, "You have answered me." This psalm does not end with His crucifixion but with His resurrection. (Psalm 22:21) [Unit 3, BE 109, Transcript, 36]
