Those who slander the truth say, “David was still a young boy when he was anointed by Samuel (1 Sa 16). So, Christ’s?baptism?at the age of 30 has nothing to do with David’s being anointed at the age of 30.” Let’s find out why their insistence is contrary to the teachings of the Bible.
When the boy David was anointed by Samuel, did he become king right away? No.
The anointment of that time was only a promise that he would be appointed as king in the future. Then when was he actually anointed to become king? It was when he was 30 years old.
- 2 Sa 5:3-4?. . . they anointed David king over Israel. David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years.
This is a very important point between David and Jesus, because the fact that Christ sat on David’s throne means that He became the Shepherd, the King, of the spiritual Israelites. So, the anointment, which was done for David when he was a young boy, has nothing to do with Christ.
Therefore, it is a non-biblical insistence that Christ’s baptism at the age of 30 has nothing to do with David’s being anointed at the age of 30 since he was still a young boy when he was anointed by Samuel (1 Sa 16).
