A Great Leader – The Messiah
Old Testament texts that point to the coming of the Messiah are traditionally interpreted from either the viewpoint of their New Testament fulfillment (evangelicalism) or their linguistic and grammatical distinctiveness within the Hebrew Bible (non-conservative). The Messiah in the Old Testament considers another important theology. It approaches Israel’s concept of the Messiah as a developing theme and shows how a proper grasp of the textual meaning at each stage of Old Testament revelation is necessary for understanding messianic prophecy.
Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people (Isiah 55:4) .
It can be cross-referenced with Ezekiel 34:24, “And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD has spoken it and Revelation 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood. ” Here we have a “Great Leader – the Messiah.”
