The Question about the Messiah

41 While the Pharisees were together, Jesus questioned them,(A) 42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?”

They replied, “David’s.”

43 He asked them, “How is it then that David, inspired by the Spirit,[a] calls him ‘Lord’:(B)

44 The Lord declared to my Lord,
‘Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies under your feet’?[b][c] (C)
