Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Anointed One, the deliverer of Israel and all those who accept his gift of salvation.
As I mentioned in the first post in this series, the Jewish people expected Messiah to come as a conquering king. Those prophecies remain unfulfilled until the next time Jesus comes.
However, the entire sacrificial system Judaism followed when they had their temple pointed to a savior who would be a sacrifice. A lamb who would once and for all take away the sins of the people. A high priest who could face the holiness of God without fearing reprisal.
A human without the cursed seed of a man. A man from the promised line of Abraham and David.
The culmination of this series involves dramatic recreations of possible interviews of people who encountered Jesus Christ during his earthly ministry. What did they think of Jesus? Did they believe he was the Messiah?
Please take the time to watch the entire video.
What about you? What does Messiah mean to you?
