The Presentation and Rejection of Messiah Jesus
Old Testament prophecy paints a riddle concerning the Messiah. Is he to be a suffering servant (Isaiah 53)? Or is he a victorious king (Ps. 2; Ps. 110; Isaiah 9:6-7; Daniel 7:14)? We examine this riddle with an eye toward understanding the expectations of Jews at the time of presentation of Messiah Jesus. The presentation of the promised kingdom to Israel results in the rejection of the King, His crucifixion according to the purpose and foreknowledge of God (Acts 2:23), the postponement of the promised physical kingdom on earth, and initiates a new ministry of the Holy Spirit. The physical kingdom now awaits His second advent. [1 hour 58 minutes]
