Re: Throne of the high priest
By your understanding. But the bible doesn't say that.

Only if one understands Psalm 110 as being messianic. But the Psalm itself doesn't say that anyplace either.
We will have a priest forever under the order of Melchizedek.
Picking a bad translation of a verse to "prove" your own personal ideas is making your own religion.
Something new...yes , but they are not my ideas.
Whether they were still Jews after they wrote these things is certainly a subject of discussion.
1st century Jews were eyewitnesses to the new covenant and interpreted the OT and wrote accordingly.
Jesus was from Judah and was proclaimed as king and Messiah by some Jews.
"Make him king"?
After he fed the 5000, the crowd, convinced he was the Prophet, planned to take him by force and make him king...but Jesus slipped away.
Which you still can't support with biblical verses.
The work of the king went beyond the political expectations of the people. He had priestly functions to perform for a more complete restoration. He would shed his blood for the sins of the world, opening the way to the presence of God as it was in Eden.
This is why we call it the Good news for all mankind.
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.
