Deeper Questions from the Tanakh

Prophecies about the coming Messiah are scattered liberally throughout the Tanakh (Hebrew Scriptures). There are too many to mention here, but for those who are sincerely seeking the truth of Messiah, here are some questions to consider on your spiritual journey.


TEHILIM (PSALMS) 110 verses 1-2, 4
1 "A Psalm of David. HaShem saith unto my lord: 'Sit thou at My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool'."

Who is King David’s lord? Who can be greater than the king?

2 "The rod of Thy strength HaShem will send out of Zion: 'Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.'"

If evidence of the Messiah is world peace, why will the Messiah’s enemies still exist?

4 "HaShem hath sworn, and will not repent: 'Thou art a priest for ever after the manner of Melchizedek.'"

Who could possibly retain the position of priest forever?

MIKHAH (MICAH) 5 verse 1-2
1 "But thou, Beth-lehem Ephrathah, which art little to be among the thousands of Judah, out of thee shall one come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from ancient days (or from days of eternity). "Whose origins can possibly go back into eternity?

2 "Therefore will He give them up, until the time that she who travaileth hath brought forth."

Who is she who is in labour? Is she the pure young woman who is mentioned in Isaiah 7?

YESHA’YAHU (ISAIAH) 7 verse 14
14 "Therefore the L-rd Himself shall give you a sign: behold, the young woman shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (meaning G-d with us)."

What is so special about this child that he is named G-d with us?

4 "Who hath ascended up into heaven, and descended? Who hath gathered the wind in his fists? Who hath bound the waters in his garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou knowest?"

Why does this verse say that G-d has a son?

DANI’EL (DANIEL) 9 verse 25-26
25 "Know therefore and discern, that from the going forth of the word to restore and to build Jerusalem unto one anointed, a prince, shall be seven weeks; and for threescore and two weeks, it shall be built again, with broad place and moat, but in troublous times. 26 And after the threescore and two weeks shall an anointed one be cut off, and be no more; and the people of a prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; but his end shall be with a flood." 

Dani’el writes in v. 26 that the anointed one (Messiah) will be killed before the Temple is destroyed, which took place in 70CE. Has the Messiah really come and gone? How is it possible to have missed the Messiah? When will he return to rule in the midst of his enemies (Tehilim 110 v2)?
