The City of the Great King

“Again, you have heard that the ancients were told, ‘YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FALSE VOWS, BUT SHALL FULFILL YOUR VOWS TO THE LORD.’ But I say to you, make no oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God, or by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, or by Jerusalem, for it is THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING. Nor shall you make an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black. But let your statement be, ‘Yes, yes’ or ‘No, no’; anything beyond these is of evil” (Matt 5:33-37).

Supersessionists love to claim that the city of Jerusalem is no longer relevant to God in the plan of redemption. Perhaps, but if this is the case, we must be consistent. In these verses, Yeshua not only claims that Jerusalem is the city of the Great King, but also that heaven is the throne of God and the earth is the footstool of his feet.

Jerusalem still is, and will continue to be the city of the Great King!

Thus, by the logic of supersessionism, we must say that heaven and earth no longer have any relevance in God’s plan of redemption as well. We can also say that the Sermon on the Mount has also been rendered obsolete now that Yeshua has died for the sins of the world and rose again. Or, perhaps we should simply take Jesus at his word, and say that Jerusalem still is, and will continue to be the city of the Great King!

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away” (Matt 24:35).
