Understanding the concept of the Messiah in both the Old and New Testaments is paramount to comprehending the significance of the Old Testament prophecies pertaining to the Messiah and how Jesus repeatedly indicated that He was the fulfillment of these prophecies. This study is from the New Zealand website entitled “Jesus Plus Nothing!” and if you haven’t already bookmarked them as an excellent Biblical teaching resource, I would strongly encourage you to do so.
The following study will be a comparison between the concept of Messiah as outlined in the Hebrew Scriptures and that of the Christian New Testament documents. The purpose of this exposition will be to expound upon the Jewish teaching on Messiah in contrast with that of Christianity. The Hebrew Bible gives a clear outline as to who, what, where and how the Messiah will appear. For this reason, we begin with an examination of the Hebrew Scriptures in order to see if whether the Tanakh supports the fact that the Messiah of God is both divine and human, one Person having two natures. We will also examine the Hebrew Bible for the evidence that the Messiah would not only reign as king, but also die a substitutionary death on behalf of sinners, making atonement for sin. As this is being done, we will see if Jesus fits the outline of Messiah presented to us in the Hebrew Bible.
