Re: Throne of the high priest
I'm still not grasping the point, sorry.

Ah. Another expert on Talmud. I swear, there are more experts here than in my Synagogue. Seriously.
Further, both the Midrash on Psalms and the Babylonian Talmud recognize Psalm 110 as referencing the Messiah.
I'm sorry, I don't see how this supports your position.
If you don't believe me, then perhaps you'll listen to the Encyclopedia Judaica:
No, I'm hung up on the fact that the text mentions a king on his throne and a high priest on his throne. Not one guy on two thrones.
I assume you're hang up with the translation is keyed on the plural "crowns" in the passage?
For the LORD your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath.
