How do you manage to keep the faith , knowing that the Messiah is supposed to be a human being like us, not a divine being . Did you read the Torah ? It clearly says that the Messiah will not be divine. So what do Christians believe that Jesus the Messiah ? Please tell me
There is nothing explicit in the Torah that says that the Messiah is not divine. That is an interpretation that came after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD , where it was expected that the Messiah would
( I ) Create a Third Temple
( Ii ) Return the tribes of Israel
( Iii ) global peace restored
None of this is found in the Torah explicitly ...............
As Messiaship Jesus read Isaiah 53, which speaks of his suffering servant . Many people when faced with this passage say about his Israel , but can not be because the suffering servant
I was thinking of getting a new diesel truck .... so I went to different dealers .... and I have the information from each of your truck Fabulous . !
Each swears up and down that his truck is the best .... and ITS pamplets try.
It reminds me of the Bible , the Koran , the Torah .....
I believe in Jesus , He is the Messiah .... and what you read and say , it makes no difference to me , as if I told you to read the Bible and find evidence there ... I would not, either , would you?
Muslims say that Jesus is a prophet , and that prophets can not lie ... and yet , in the Bible , Jesus says that He is the Son of God .... so ... Jesus is lying ? And if so , then there can not be a prophet .
So who is right? I think I'll forget the truck , for many people all saying they are the best .
There are 330 highly detailed prophecies clearly point to the birth , life, death , resurrection and ascension of Christ . Describe the place and time of his birth , to be born of a virgin , be the seed of a woman , a descendant of the tribe of Judah , a prophet , priest and king , it would be rejected by the Jews , betrayed by 30 pieces of silver , hated without cause, mocked, spat , hands , feet and pierced side might be , they cast lots for his clothes , not a bone breaks during his crucifixion , then a description of his resurrection and ascension .
One of my favorites is Genesis 49:10 that you may be familiar . The Jerusalem Talmud even confirms that the Jewish priests recognized that the positive ( step Septor of Judah ) had happened, but did not realize that at that time , Jesus increased in Nazarath .
The blessings of God is my friend .
Behold, my son , I will write to you again if you do not get out soon against the Lamanites . Behold, the pride of this nation , or the people of the Nephites , has been the cause of their destruction unless they repent .
28 Pray for them , my son, that repentance may come to them . But behold, I fear lest the Spirit has given up fighting with them , and in this part of the land they are also trying to put all the power and authority that comes from God . And you can not deny the Holy Spirit
29 And after rejecting so great a knowledge , my son, they must perish soon , for the fulfillment of the prophecies that have been spoken by the prophets , and the words of our Savior himself .
30 Farewell, my son , until I write to you, or shall meet you again. Amen .
What the Jews thought the Messiah (Christ ) would be someone who would deliver them from Roman rule . But God spoke of the Messiah as one who would free the Jews and Gentiles all people from sin . He will come again and once it reaches its second time that Israel will accept it and mourn bitterly as one would an only child .
I do not blame the Jews I thank you because if I had not had him crucified not saved me, nobody can prove anything to you because it will not accept any evidence unless you see if for yourself.
Jesus said : Blessed are those who believe , but have not yet seen .
We only ask that you prove itself to prove that it is real and open mind.

Psalm 22:1 Jesus last words
Man can not prove that Jesus is the Messiah, it is necessary to receive the revelation of God.
16 Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven.
Peter received the revelation of God to know that Jesus was the Christ. This is what every Christian should do, know God lives and that He is the Son:
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. (New Testament, Matthew, chapter 16)
To know that Jesus is the Christ is the rock of our testimony. Personal revelation is that the Holy Ghost to know that Jesus is alive and that he dd atone for the sins of the world and that only through him can we enter the kingdom of God. If the evidence is not based on personal revelation then the gates of hell will prevail against us and away from the true God.
God commanded Abraham to sacrifice Isaac to Abraham knew what God feels to sacrifice his son. The High Priest is the only thing that could go through the veil of the tabernacle of Moses was a symbol of Christ is the only one that could pass through death atone for sins and be the "first fruits" of them that slept. When Jesus died, the veil of the temple was torn in two.
51 And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth quaked, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints which slept arose (New Testament, Matthew, chapter 27)
The veil was torn in two, in the symbolism that Christ had opened the way for all of us to go through the death and enter into the kingdom of God. Without the atonement of Christ is only the Mosaic law that requires a temple in which to carry out animal sacrifice to atone for sins: Exodus 29:36, Leviticus 1:4-5, Leviticus 5:16, Number 15 25
They think that the Torah is translated and interpreted as the Old Testament accurately.
They believe that the messianic prophecies are about virgin births and resurrections .
Most of them are just willing to believe what other Christians say time to align with their own beliefs , if more of them learned what the Torah actually says about the Messiah , would be less Christians.
A few generations back, Sir Robert Anderson, head of the investigative division of Scotland Yard, and the London Royal Observatory confirmed one of the biblical prophesies concerning Jesus Christ. The accuracy of this prophecy is dead on as you'll soon discover.
Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until The Anointed One the Ruler comes there will be seven weeks and sixty two weeks. It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench but in times of trouble. (Daniel 9:25).
This prophecy speaks of a time period called a "week" which is a span of seven years much like our decade equals 10 years. When this message was given to Daniel by the Angel Gabriel, Jerusalem had lain in ruin for nearly 70 years and the Jews were being held captive in Babylon.
Counting forward for 62 + 7 periods of 7 years each from a future decree giving the Jews permission to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, they should expect the Messiah. That’s a total of 483 years after the decree is issued.
When he conquered Babylon in 535BC Cyrus the Persian immediately freed the Jews. This event had been prophesied 150 years earlier in Isaiah 44:24-45:6 and was fulfilled in Ezra 1:1-4. And according to Nehemiah 2:1-6 the decree to rebuild Jerusalem was given by King Artaxerxes Longimanus of Persia in the first month of the 20th year of his reign (March 15, 445 BC on our calendar, about 90 years later).
By plotting the times of all the full moons in ancient history the investigators determined that by adding 483 years to the March 14, 445 BC date, you arrive at April 6, 32AD, the first Palm Sunday, the date Jesus rode into Jerusalem as the Anointed Son of God. Using the Hebrew calendar better explains the accuracy of this prophecy. The decree was issued 10 Nisan 445BC and fulfilled on 10 Nisan 32AD –– 483 years to the day.
How they did the calculations ...
According to Sir Robert Anderson of Scotland Yard, and the London Royal Observatory, there were exactly 173,880 days from the issuing of the decree by Artaxerxes on March 14, 445 BC to the first Palm Sunday on April 6, 32AD. You have to know some bits of esoteric information to arrive at this number. First you have to add a day for every four years but subtract one for every hundred. Second there’s no year zero. It goes from 1BC to 1AD. Then you have to subtract the days from Jan 1 to Mar 14 of the year 445 and the days from April 6 to Dec. 31 in the year 32. Finally, there’s strong evidence that God’s way of counting years never varied from the original 360 days, the way he created them. When you divide 173,880 by 360 you get exactly 483 years. You can find all the math in Anderson’s book, The Coming Prince, a commentary on Daniel 9:24-27.
There were over 300 prophecies related to the First Coming. All were fulfilled within the span of one generation (about 70 years according to Psalm 90:10 and Isaiah 23:15). There are over 500 prophecies relating to the Second Coming, and again all will be fulfilled within the span of one generation (Matt 24:34). Many scholars believe that generation began with the first of the so-called End Times signs, the establishment of a nation Israel on May 15, 1948. No other prophesies can be fulfilled without a nation Israel in place. And just as with the First Coming our leaders no longer take the Bible literally and the validity of predictive prophecy is being denied. But just as before the Lord holds us accountable to “recognize the time of God’s coming.”
