It is not yet ready to order, but it looks interesting, never the less.
Few books have sought to exhaustively trace the theme of Messiah through all of Scripture,
but this book does so with the expert analysis of three leading evangelical scholars. For the Bible student and pastor, Jesus the Messiah presents a comprehensive picture of both scriptural and cultural expectations surrounding the Messiah, from an examination of the Old Testament promises to their unique and perfect fulfillment in Jesus’ life.
Students of the life of Christ will benefit from the authors’ rich understanding of ancient biblical culture and pastors will find an indispensable help for understanding the unity and importance of the ancient promise of Messiah. This handsome volume will be a ready reference on Messiah for years to come.
Here is my stance. No one, really, in the Old Testament was necessarily looking for a Messiah, and as a matter of fact, when the Jews started too, the concept was still varied. Does this mean that the Messiah cannot be found in the Old Testament? No. I mean, look at Cyrus. If we have a proper understanding of Matthew, then we can use the Old Testament to ‘find’ the Messiah.
