The Unbelieving Jews Were Cast Out by God

"Let us pray for the Jewish People, that they will return to the Lord their God, whom they have crucified". From Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman (+1890).

[] Our Lord questioned the Pharisees and spoke to them: Who do you think Christ is? Whose son is he?"

They answered him: "The Son of David."

For the Prophet Isaiah had said before: "A branch will sprout from the root of Jesse".

Jesse was the father of David, of the Kings of the Jews. The "branch" or plant was a visual image of the all holy Maiden.

"And there shall come forth a rod out of the root of Jesse, and a flower shall rise up out of his root." (Is. 11.1): The flower, that blooms from the stem, is our Lord -- the Son of the holy virgin, Mary.

"And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him" (Is 11.2). At the baptism at the Jordan the Holy Ghost descended upon Him.

Behold the days come, saith the Lord, and I will raise up to David a just branch: and a king shall reign, and shall be wise, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Israel shall dwell confidently."

And: "this is the name that they shall call him: the Lord our just one" (Jer. 23, 5-6).

Therefore the Jews said, when they argued whether our Lord and Savior was the Messiah: "Doth not the scripture say: That Christ cometh of the seed of David, and from Bethlehem the town where David was? " (John 7: 42)
