The Mysterious "Prince" of Ezekiel: Is it Yeshua or David?

Here are the differences, as I see it, between Yeshua and the Prince (of Ezekiel):


Yeshua owns the entire planet:

Psalms 2:6 “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. (7) I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (8) Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.”

The Prince of Ezekiel owns a relatively small parcel of land:

"7 ‘The prince will have the land bordering each side of the area formed by the sacred district and the property of the city. It will extend westward from the west side and eastward from the east side, running lengthwise from the western to the eastern border parallel to one of the tribal portions. This land will be his possession in Israel," (Ezekiel 45:7-8) 
"21 What remains on both sides of the area formed by the sacred portion and the property of the city will belong to the prince. It will extend eastward from the 25,000 cubits of the sacred portion to the eastern border, and westward from the 25,000 cubits to the western border. Both these areas running the length of the tribal portions will belong to the prince, and the sacred portion with the temple sanctuary will be in the center of them. 22 So the property of the Levites and the property of the city will lie in the center of the area that belongs to the prince. The area belonging to the prince will lie between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin," (Ezekiel 48:21-22)


Yeshua never sinned:

"15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin," (Hebrews 4:15)

He committed no sin and no deceit was found in his mouth," (1 Peter 2:22)

David sinned:

"For David had done what was right in the eyes of the LORD and had not failed to keep any of the LORD's commands all the days of his life--except in the case of Uriah the Hittite," (1 Kings 15:5)

The Prince of Ezekiel has a sin nature:

"On that day the prince is to provide a bull as a sin offering for himself and for all the people of the land," (Ezekiel 45:22)


Yeshua had no physical offspring.

The Prince of Ezekiel will have physical offspring:

16 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: If the prince makes a gift from his inheritance to one of his sons, it will also belong to his descendants; it is to be their property by inheritance. 17 If, however, he makes a gift from his inheritance to one of his servants, the servant may keep it until the year of freedom; then it will revert to the prince. His inheritance belongs to his sons only; it is theirs. 18 The prince must not take any of the inheritance of the people, driving them off their property. He is to give his sons their inheritance out of his own property, so that not one of my people will be separated from their property,'" (Ezekiel 46:16-18)


How do we resolve passages like Ezekiel 37:24-25 which refer to "David" as Melech (King) and "David" as ha-nasi (the Prince)?  I believe that there are two Davids.  Yeshua is the Davidic King;  David is the prince.  And it wouldn't be the first time that David performed a priestly role.  Remember how he wore the ephod?  (see 2 Samuel 6:14,17).  

But feel free to disagree and discuss.  Does anyone have a better interpretation?


  1. נשיא-Nasi, does not mean prince. It means one who presides.

    נסיך-Nasich means prince.

    1. So, Dan, give us your interpretation of Ezekiel. Is the Prince Yeshua or David? Any thoughts?

  2. I don't think it is either of them. David was a king, and Yeshua is the King. None of them was/is a prince.
    The Hebrew says נשיא-Nasi.

    1. That's a good point. For the sake of the blog post, I narrowed it down to two choices. But, in reality, there are more possibilities.

    2. Ezekiel 34:24 - "I the L-RD will be their G-d, and my servant David will be PRINCE among them. I the L-RD have spoken."

      Jeremiah 30:9 - "Instead, they will serve the LORD their God and David their KING, whom I will raise up for them."

      So, we read the David will be both a prince AND a king. With that in mind, I don't think that "prince" means the same thing in Hebrew as it does in English (meaning, one in line for the king's throne, but not yet a king himself).

    3. Gene,

      Who is "the David"? In your opinion. (just interested in your view; not trying to engage on this one).

    4. "Who is "the David"?"

      The Messiah.

    5. Do you believe that the individual who will have physical offspring is also this same Messiah?

    6. "Do you believe that the individual who will have physical offspring is also this same Messiah?"

      Why not? Doesn't even G-d have "physical offspring"? Or, for example, if Messiah (Yeshua) WANTED to have physical children, are we to assume that he was physically incapable? (I am not saying that he will, but that it was certainly possible).

      But besides all that, in many cases the language used by the Bible is quite mystical and doesn't always lend itself to a strict literal interpretation. For example, how can Messiah still be David, and still not actually and literally be David? I would suggest that it's quite similar to John the Baptist and Elijah - they share the same spirit (if you will), but they are not literally the same person.

    7. Totally agree, I think it's Aaron, the was the high priest and prince of Levi, when Aaron's rod bloomed, it says that all of the princes names were on the rods, and Aaron's bloomed and had fruit, plus it was put in the Ark of the Covenant, and he was told his priest hood would be forever.

  3. Again, Rashi says the prince is the Cohen Gadol - it does not have to be the Messiah or even David. Ezekiel only calls him the prince, on the templo passage there is no mention of David.

  4. Let us start with where we are at right now to see if we can identify who could be the prince. In Acts 3:19-21 we are told that the Lord Jesus (Joshua in English) MUST sit at the right hand of the Father in heaven as a High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek UNTIL restoration is done. Now we must remember our Lord Jesus spoke of a future prophet coming who “will restore all things”. This is immediately corroborated in Acts 3:22 which speaks of that prophet.

    In Haggai 2:18-23, Zerubbabel is chosen to be like God’s signet “in that day”. This prophecy is yet to be fulfilled. Let's tie this prophecy with Elijah, Michael, and John, and the Two Witnesses. QUESTIONS: Why is it that a man named “Zerubbabel” holds the measuring line for the temple in Zechariah 4:9-10, however it is a man named “John” who holds the measuring line for the temple in Revelation 11:1-2? Same prophecy but different names! Why?

    Names have meaning. The name Zerubbabel means “seed of Babylon” referring to a child conceived and born in Babylon. Since Zerubbabel did not fulfill all of the prophecy concerning him as prophesied in Haggai and Zechariah, that means it is yet to be fulfilled. If you accept that the prophecy of “Joshua and Zerubbabel” was a symbolic prophecy in which Joshua and Zerubbabel where SYMBOLIC of two men who would come LATER in the future to fulfill the prophecies spoken of them, then it starts to make sense.

    The prophecy concerning Joshua would be fulfilled first, then the prophecy concerning Zerubbabel would be fulfilled second. The Father sent the Lord Jesus to us…FIRST…to redeem us.

    The one who fulfills the prophecy concerning Zerubbabel is sent…SECOND…to “restore all things”. He prepares the way for the Lord Jesus who is the rightful King and has been given authority as the Lord over the whole earth for His obedience to the Father.

    The one who fulfills the prophecy concerning “Zerubbabel” is a child born in END-TIME Babylon. His name will not be Zerubbabel. The name of the child is _________! Jeremiah and Isaiah will corroborate this. According to Isaiah 49, his name has been “mentioned” before. Also, he is referred to as the “chosen man” from Babylon of Jeremiah 50 who is the appointed prophet over END-TIME Babylon.

    One of the questions in Jeremiah 50:44 is “For who is like Me?”. We know that “Me” is referring to God. Therefore, we can rephrase it to say “For who is like God?”.

    How was the prophet Moses referred when he stood before Pharaoh?

    Exodus 7:1 (NKJV) – “So the LORD said to Moses: “See, I have made you as God to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.”

    Now Moses was not God but rather His appointed authority, His signet ring, His rod.

    Also, what does the name of the archangel Michael mean? Michael is a Hebrew male name that is derived from the question “Who is like God?” or “Who is like El?”. And we know the book of Daniel speaks of Michael the prince coming for his people at the end of days.

    At this point read how the angel responded to John in Revelation 22:8-9 when John tried to worship the angel.

    Did you catch that? The angel said he is a prophet! The angel Michael the prince of Israel will be born as a child in end-time Babylon. He will be given great authority as the "chosen man" to prepare the way for the Lord. His earthly name will be John for he must prophesy to the world. John and his brother will be the two witnesses...JUST LIKE MOSES AND AARON!

  5. Yeshua was the Crown Prince of Israel. He was of the Royal line. Everyone knew that... Even the blind cried out Yeshua BenDaveed, Yeshua Son of David! At one point we even tried to crown Him king but He slipped away.

    1. Hi, Stan. Thanks for visiting and sharing with us. G-d bless!

  6. The prince in Ezekiel 44:1-3 is Satan's literal genetic son: Jesus Christ.

    Yahshua fulfilled this prophecy less than 2,000 years ago.

    Bless you.

  7. The Prince's name is given to us in Daniel 12:1...

    According to Christians and Catholics, Jesus (really another name for the sun god Horus), replaced Michael as the Messiah. This is why Christians honor their god on SUN-day.

    Michael the Messiah is called "David" in Ezekiel 34:24 & Jeremiah 30:9, "Joshua" in Zechariah 3:3, "Zerubbabel" in Zechariah 4:7, and "Elijah" in Malachi 4:5.

    Michael is the Arm of Yahwuah (YHWH). He is the Angel of the LORD that is mentioned many times throughout the Hebrew Scriptures.

    Michael will lead the children of Elohim from the four corners of the earth (Jeremiah 23, 31) to Israel and a place that He will call "Zion," where water will break forth in the desert (Isaiah 35) and become a garden of Eden (Ezekiel 36:35).

    "Messiah the Prince" (Daniel 9:25) will rebuild the temple of Yahuwah and conduct sacrifices again (Ezekiel 46:12). He will also be the only One to walk through the eastern gate of the newly rebuilt temple (Ezekiel 44:13).

    In order to accept the truth, you must deprogram yourself from the lie that Jesus is the Son of God. He is not. His name means "Hail Zeus" and he is a Roman recreation of an ancient Egyptian god named Horus. Evidence of this is the Egyptian obelisk in the Vatican square where the birth of the pagan religion called Christianity began...

    "Who will believe [My] report? To whom has the Arm of Yahuwah been revealed?" Isaiah 53:1

    He has been revealed to You.

  9. Let us all remember that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is equally merciful and just. Yes the Messiah will come to judge, but also HE KNOWS those that love the crucified Lamb of God and try to follow Him, even if ignorantly they call Him Jesus Christ. The Ruach so mercifully is revealing the TRUTH of the True Jewish Messiah in these last days for those who have ears to hear. I first heard of the Lamb of God as a child, and yes, I was told His Name was Jesus. When I cried out to Him, though I used the wrong Name, I was in my heart and soul crying out for the ONE who died for my sins and was raised to life again. It is in the Torah and the Prophets and the Writings, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob looks at the heart. That is why I am glad HE IS GOD, and not man. If we all had to be 100% theologically correct every single one of you and myself would be on our way to hell.
