Contents:
English contents : Introduction : the study of Messianism The Messiah in the Pentateuch The Messiah before and during the Davidic monarchy The Messiah in the Psalms The Messiah in the ninth- and eighth-century prophets The Messiah in the eighth-century prophets (Isaiah) ; The Messiah in the seventh- and sixth-Century prophets The Messiah in the postexilic prophets Conclusion Appendix I : chart of New Testament fulfillments of Old Testament Messianic prophecies Appendix II : chart of the progress of the sixty-five direct predictions of the Messiah in the promise doctrine.
Summary: Old Testament texts that point to the coming of the Messiah are traditionally interpreted either from 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 line of interpretation that has been neglected in building an Old Testament 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. Beginning in the Pentateuch and working through the Old Testament to the Minor Prophets, the author delineates texts that are direct messianic prophecies and examines their meaning and development within the flow of God's plan. The reader will gain an understanding of God's process for bringing the Messiah to earth through the nation of Israel, and of his intent to bring the saving knowledge of Christ to the world through them.
