It’s not uncommon for modern Orthodox Jews to assert that the idea of a Divine Messiah goes completely against Scripture.
But is there really no basis in Scripture for a Divine Messiah?
Let’s look at few passages and find out.
MOSHIACH IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL:
Perhaps a good place to start is with the Book of Daniel where, after describing the white-haired “Ancient of Days” it describes yet another Divine figure:
“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man,coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed,” Daniel 7:13-14
“Rabbi Alexandri said: Rabbi Joshua Ben Levi pointed out a contradiction. It is written, “in its time” [will the Messiah come], whilst it is also written, “I [the Lord] will hasten it”! – If they are worthy, I will hasten it: if not [he will come] at the due time… Rabbi Alexandri said: Rabbi Joshua opposed two verses: it is written, “And behold, one like the son of man came with the clouds of heaven” (Daniel 7:13); whilst [elsewhere] it is written, “[behold, thy king cometh unto thee…] lowly, riding upon an ass” (Zechariah 9:9)! – If they are meritorious, [he will come] “with the clouds of heaven”; if not, “lowly and riding upon an ass”” BT, Sanhedrin, 98a.
The Messiah was to suffer and die:
“ I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture,” Psalm 22:14-18 (see also Isaiah 53)
“For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption,” Psalm 16:10
“Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee,” Psalm 2:6,7
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace,” Isaiah 9:6
“A remnant will return, a remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God,” Isaiah 10:21
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey,” Zech. 9:9
“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me [note: the speaker here is HaShem], the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son,” Zechariah 12:10
The evidence has been there all along! Yeshua is present throughout the Torah! : )
