Side by side with all these prophecies speaking of the establishment of a kingdom under the sway of a divinely-appointed legate, was the series foretelling the future rule of Jahveh himself. But there seems to have been little realization of the relation between these two series of prophecy until the full light of the Christian dispensation revealed their reconciliation in the mystery of the Incarnation. Two quite distinct and parallel lines are discernible in the later development of Messianic doctrine among the Jews, according as the writers clung to a national ideal, based on the literal interpretation of the earlier prophecies, or an apocalyptic ideal, based principally on Daniel.Of these Is., xl, may be taken as an example: "Lift up thy voice with strength thou that bringest good tidings to Sion: lift it up, fear not. Behold the Lord your God himself shall come with strength and his arm shall rule." The reconciliation of these two series of prophecies was before the Jews in the passages--notably Ps. The national ideal looked to the establishment on earth of the Kingdom of God under the Son of David, the conquest and subjugation of the heathen, the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple, and the gathering in of the Dispersed.As regards its Davidic authorship, the arguments impugning it afford no warrant for an abandonment of the traditional view. In it the Messiah is described as "like to a Son of Man ", appearing at the right hand of Jahveh in the clouds of heaven, inaugurating the new age, not by a national victory or by vicarious satisfaction, but by exercising the Divine right of judging the whole world.That by the prophet described in Deuteronomy -22, was also understood, at least at the beginning of our era, the Messiah is clear from the appeal to his gift of prophecy made by the pseudo-Messiah Theudas (cf. Thus, the emphasis is upon the personal responsibility of the individual.(Or Messias .) The Greek form Messias is a transliteration of the Hebrew, Messiah , "the anointed".The word appears only twice of the promised prince ( Daniel ; Psalm 2:2 ); yet, when a name was wanted for the promised one, who was to be at once King and Saviour, it was natural to employ this synonym for the royal title, denoting at the same time the King's royal dignity and His relation to God.
National Ideal The national ideal is that of official Pharisaism. A last judgment, future happiness, or reward are not mentioned.The earlier prophecies to Abraham and Isaac ( Genesis -19 ; 26:4-5 ) speak merely of the salvation that shall come through their seed.
