MJS 503 / Ha-Mashiach: The Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures
4 Credit Hours
Full Course Title: Ha-Mashiach: The Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures & Chronological Aspects Of The Life of Christ
This study is concerned with what is known theologically as Messianic Christology. It is a survey of the Messianic prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures which were fulfilled at the First Coming of Messiah (Jesus Christ).
This study is presented from a Messianic Jewish perspective, and it will be shown that these prophecies in the life of Yeshua (Jesus) cannot be fulfilled in any other way. The Old Testament Scriptures which speak of the First Coming of the Messiah will be examined in the same context and categories that Jesus and the Apostles used: The Law, The Prophets, and The Writings.
In the complementary study, the author of the second text noted: “Jesus Christ entered into the history of our world. The backbone of history is chronology, a science of time. It seeks to establish and arrange the dates of past events in their proper sequence. This chronology serves as necessary framework upon which the events of history may be fitted.
This is not a book on the life of Christ but it attempts to establish certain fixed dates of our Lord’s life.”
