That these promises had reference to Jesus Christ, who was to be raised up in the condemned line of Abraham and David, and who, tho wearing their condemned nature, was to obtain a title to resurrection by perfect obedience, and, by dying, abrogate the law of condemnation for himself, and all who should believe and obey him.
The promises to Abraham and David made reference to a promised seed. That seed, we are told is Jesus Christ. He is the oldest living being to has the right to sit on the throne of David to rule over the house of Israel. He is the descendant of Abraham who fulfills the promises to Abraham.
