Luke 1:33 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments

33. The house of Jacob Both of Jacob’s natural and spiritual descendants. “For,” says Grotius, “just as David the king of Israel did by conquest amalgamate the Edomites and other nations with his kingdom, so also this Messiah-king, by gospel conquest, shall incorporate the Gentiles into his kingdom and naturalize them as true Israel. Isa 14:1. The stranger shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.” And, Isa 44:5, of the same stranger it is said he

shall call himself by the name of Jacob.” For ever This term being applied here to no earthly or mere human subject, must be taken in the strict sense of eternity.

Shall be no end For though its probationary mediatorial form shall cease, yet its substance shall be eternal. Christ shall be eternal king, and so his reign and throne shall be endless.
