The Messiah of Israel

The Messiah of Israel

Quoting from Truthnet.org: The Christian understanding of the Messiah (Christ) of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) is based on what prophets proclaimed about Messiah.  The objections often raised by Jews, regarding the Christian understanding of the Hebrew Scriptures is the charge of incorrect interpretation and reading. Does Jesus Christ fulfill the prophecies of the Jewish Prophets?  When reading the New Testament Gospels, particularly Matthew, one cannot help, but read about Jesus, and the gospel writer’s claim of fulfillment, of prophecies written, hundreds of years before his birth. Were these prophets writing about Jesus? The prophets of the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) wrote as God revealed the words to them about the person of Messiah.  They reveled qualifiers, such as “Son of David” (2nd Samuel 7:13) “Bethlehem…Out of you” (Micah 5:2) and “Jerusalem: Behold, your King….riding on a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9).  These qualifiers allowed Israel to distinguish the “True Messiah” from false messiahs.  Anybody could claim to be messiah, but without meeting the qualifiers, they became disqualified from their claim.
