Bibliology on Books on the Messiah

Essentially the concept of the Messiah (Hebrew) or Christ (Greek for the same word) is that specially anointed one. This refers to that one anointed by God for the mission of saving the world. This same person is God himself, the second person of the Trinity, which had the task to undertake Salvation by the offering of himself as a human sacrifice for mankind.

Within these concepts, Messiah occurs very scarcely in the Old Testament, but it does occur. In the New Testament, Jesus quickly picked up on that term “Christ” for himself. So there are two concepts here that diverge or become different. What the Old Testament Jew believed as “Messiah” which the New Testament believers rightfully assigned to Jesus. And what the New Testament Jews (and Jews after that) that rejected Jesus as the Messiah distorted. explanation.

Jewish Concepts of the Messiah

When you read modern Jewish writings on the Messiah, most rabbis will reject Jesus and make up something else. The newest twisting is that they accept openly that Jesus was the Messiah, but they begin twisting, saying “it is jehosha is the Messiah“. They say that it is Hebrew “correct” way to say “Jesus”. The name “Jesus” comes from the Greek. By doing this they seek to destroy the New Testament concept of Jesus and drag anyone they can back under the Old Testament law. Gradually they do that by saying that we must obey the law.
