Session Title: "The Sweet Psalmist of Israel": Jesus Sings His Own Songs

Session Description: Preachers and commentators often refer to the idea of "messianic psalms," psalms which they say are about Christ. This then raises the question as to which psalms are messianic, or which verses in these psalms are messianic. This workshop will look at another way to frame the discussion. That is, rather than thinking in the terms of the Psalms being "about" Christ, I will propose that we think instead in terms of the Psalms being "by" Christ. So how many messianic psalms are there? My answer will be, "one hundred and fifty." We will also look at the implications of this understanding for how we might read, pray, sing, and use the Psalms, both in the church, and in our own individual Christian lives.
