Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures
The Identity of the Messiah
Jesus in the Hebrew Scriptures? Wasn’t He supposed to be in the New Testament only? Well, of course He is featured in the prophecies that foretell His first and second coming, and this book has a detailed look at some of them. But did you know that throughout the Hebrew narrative Jesus was also there in person? Did you know that He was seen not only by some of the well-known heroes of faith but that He also met and conversed with some of the less prominent Jewish figures? Let us turn to the Hebrew Scriptures and see what they teach about Jesus.
Some of the topics are:
- God – absolute or composite unity?
- El Shaddai – when men saw God face to face
- The Angel of the Covenant–preparations for the coming of the Messiah
- Immanuel – the prophecy about the virgin birth of the Messiah
- The Messiah-King to come, according to the Hebrew Scriptures – something for us to look forward to
- The Messiah cut off – Did you know that Daniel foretold the precise time of the first coming of the Messiah to earth?
- The Servant of the Lord – the suffering Messiah – He did what He did for you and me!
