Comparing the SUN and the SON of God in Psalm 19

This morning we spoke on Psalm 19:1-6. There is some interesting comparisons and contrasts between the physical sun and the Son of God


A comparison between the SUN and SON of God based off of Psalm 19:1-6

· The SUN is the chief manifestor of the glory of God in creation

· The SON is the chief manifestor of the glory of God in human form


2 Light

· The SUN is the light of creation

· The SON is the light of the world


3 The Star

· The SUN is the star and primary figure in creation

· The SON is star and primary figure in the word of God


4 Burting onto the scene

· The SUN bursts onto the scene as a bridegroom and a runner

· The SON bursts onto the scene in the gospels in the form of a humble virgin born baby


5 Rejoices

· The SUN rejoices as a strongman to run a race

· The SON rejoices to do God’s will (Psalm 40:8; Heb 10:7)


6 Existence

· The SUN’s existence extends from one end of creation to the other

· All of creation’s existence is under the SON’s rule and reign


7 Power
