It is taken that Psalms 2 is speaking about Jesus. Christ is considered to be the “King upon Zion.” Spoken in Psalms 2:6. He is shown to be the “anointed” in Psalms 2:2 which is quoted in Acts 4:26 and the “son” from Psalms 2:7 which is quoted in Hebrews 2:7.
I’m trying to connect how Zion, God’s holy mountain connects with the historical Jesus.
Upon my holy hill of Zion - Zion was the southern hill in the city of Jerusalem. See the notes at Isaiah 1:8. It was the highest of the hills on which the city was built. It was made by David the capital of his kingdom, and was hence called the city of David, 2 Chronicles 5:2. By the poets and prophets it is often put for Jerusalem itself, Isaiah 2:3; Isaiah 8:18; Isaiah 10:24; Isaiah 33:14, et al. It did not obtain this distinction until it was taken by David from the Jebusites, 2 Samuel 5:5-9; 1 Chronicles 11:4-8. To that place David removed the ark of the covenant, and there he built an altar to the Lord in the threshing-floor of Araunah the Jebusite, 2 Samuel 24:15-25. Zion became thenceforward the metropolis of the kingdom, and the name was transferred to the entire city. It is to this that the passage here refers; and the meaning is, that in that metropolis or capital God had constituted his Messiah king, or had appointed him to reign over his people.
It seems that Christ is the King that is mentioned here, however I struggle to see how Zion, God’s holy mountain fits in the picture. In Revelation 14:1 is says "Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion,..." Though he was called a king (Matthew 27:37), Lamb of God (John 1:29), and ministered in Jerusalem, Jesus was never set on a mountain. Is this mountain supposed to be a type/symbols relating to Jesus in someway or is this to be taken in some metaphorical sense?
