Reference: Branch, The
A title of the Lord Jesus, which He will bear in connection with Israel in the future. Isa 4:2; Jer 23:5; 33:15; Zec 3:8; 6:12-13. In two of the passages the words 'unto David' are added, which coincides with the Lord Jesus being the 'offspring' (which is a similar word to 'branch') as well as the 'root' of David. He will be a "righteous Branch and a King." He will "build or advance in honour the temple of Jehovah; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both." cf. Ps. 85 and Ps. 87. It is a description of the Lord Jesus in the millennium.
