Approach: Reading Psalms 69 and learning how to discern its messianic prophecies. Through David, God reveals prophecies that point to the Messiah.

Hermeneutic objective: Comparing the Old Testament messianic prophecies with their corresponding New Testament citation to understand how David speaks of himself and observing how they pertain and point to Jesus the Christ.

Theological objective: In identifying Jesus as the Righteous Sufferer, Psalms 69 provides strong evidence that He is the Messiah. When David speaks of himself, he is prophetically speaking of his descendant Jesus which describe Him as a Righteous Sufferer.
