Christianity and Judaism differ in their understanding of the Messiah – the one chosen and set apart by God to be the deliverer of God’s people – yet both of these religious traditions are looking forward to the coming of the Messiah. But who is it that is coming and what will their impact be? Can these divergent viewpoints be reconciled?
This book suggests that there is more commonality between Jewish and Christian perspectives than may appear on the surface. Drawing primarily from the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian New Testament Scriptures, it traces the unfolding story of God’s plan of redemption, reconciliation and restoration of the world to Himself though His chosen people and their promised Messiah. It is an epic narrative of God’s kingdom usurped and then regained, a story that is both uplifting and full of hope but at the same time sobering and fearful, raising concerns for all of us at this present time.
