[God said to David,] “When your days are over and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body, and I will establish his kingdom. He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever” ~ 2 Samuel 7:12-13

And all the people were amazed, and said, “Can this be the Son of David?” ~ Matthew 12:23

Advent reminds us that God’s promises are fulfilled in ways we could never imagine. Solomon may have enthroned God’s name in the temple, but Christ embodied it in his flesh.
