Let us start with what the Messiah is. Jewish beliefs today hold several views of what he is. They include a mere human, superman, prophet, king, and divine being. True answers can only be obtained from the Hebrew Scriptures or Tanakh, which consists of the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings.
Why? Because only the Hebrew Scriptures have prophecies written hundreds of years before their fulfillment. Many of these prophecies concern the Jewish Messiah. Only God can write about futures events that happen exactly as predicted! Prophecies about Israel are prime examples.
Prophecies reveal God speaking to us through his Hebrew prophets. God says not to rely on man’s wisdom such as commentaries, traditions, or other non-Biblical sources. One must only seek answers from God’s Word and not approach this study with preconceived ideas or prejudices. You must believe what the Hebrew Bible says and not rely upon mere human beings no matter what their earthly title is. God gives the concept in these passages:
Jeremiah 17:5, 7 5Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 7Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
Proverbs 14:12 12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
