A new podcast. The first on Psalm 69 just emphasized the text itself. This podcast focuses on Jesus and the New Testament and what they say about the fulfillment of the Psalm. 

Psalm 69 is one of the most frequently quoted Psalms in the NT.

69:4 hated me without a cause- John 15:25

69:9 For zeal for Your house consumed me- John 2:17

69:9 The reproaches of those who reproached You feel on Me- Romans 15:3

69:21 John 19:-28-30 does not quote but seems to allude to this passage.

69:22-23 is quoted in Romans 11:8-10

69:25 is quoted in Acts 1:20 and applied to Judas.

This psalm however is not simply a prophecy of Jesus because there are words here that Jesus could not have uttered- 69:5 for example.

What does that mean for our understanding of Scripture??
