Here's something that might help anyone preparing for Palm Sunday.
His reference is helpful on at least two levels. First, it shows yet again how all the Scriptures are fulfilled in Jesus; they are all to be seen Christologically (read St. Luke 24 again if you don't believe me), and in addition, it provides an answer to people who have falsely seen in David's dance a Biblical warrant for liturgical dance, or for the use of rock music etc. in church. Of course one can easily say (as I have often said) that David was not dancing in the synagogue or in the Temple, so, no, one can't translate David's dance into a case for contemporary worship. But now I see in David's dance something else, namely blueprint not for CoWo, but for the Triumphal Entry of Palm Sunday. David dances before the ark in procession; the children celebrate before the Christ in procession. David exults before the presence of God; the children rejoice before Jesus. David's dance is with all his might; the children spread even their garments in the way. Search the Scriptures. They testify of Christ.
