What is the Messiah & Who Is the Messiah in Jewish Prophecy?
What and who the Messiah is, when the Messiah will come (or has the Messiah already come), and what he will do, are questions answered in Jewish Messiah Prophecy. Jewish people today have several views of what the Messiah is. They include a mere human, superman, prophet, king, and divine being. True answers can only be obtained from the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh, which consists of the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings.
The Messiah prophecies of the Hebrew Bible reveal God speaking to us through his 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. 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.
