28. The like doctrine thou has also in the interpretation of the Stone, which was cut out of a mountain without hands, which is Christ according to the flesh 1956 .; And His kingdom shall not be left to another people. David also says in one place, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever .; and in another place, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundations of the earth, &c., they shall perish, but Thou remainest, &c.; but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail .: words which Paul has interpreted of the Son

1956 Ib ii. 45; Rom. ix. 5.

The qualification above, according to the flesh, occurs of Christ three times in scripture. It's difficult to ascribe it to one place or the other without a broader appeal to the verse in the context.

Fair enough. For now, he is just a good possibility.

Acts 2:30 (AV)
Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

Romans 1:3 (AV)
Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

Romans 9:3 (AV)
For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:


Daniel 2:45 (AV)
Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
