Product Description

In The Messianic Hope, Jewish Studies professor Michael Rydelnik argues against the view (growing even among evangelicals) that Old Testament texts historically interpreted as direct prophecies of the Messiah were not really Messianic in their original intent. The concept of a "messianic hope" in Israel is widely thought to be merely a postexilic scriptural phenomenon, and some say the apostles engaged in what one writer called "a creative exegetical enterprise" in order to justify it.

But without direct Messianic prophecy in the Old Testament, one of the essential arrows that Jesus and the apostles (as well as the later church) used to defend the messiahship of Jesus is removed from the quiver of contemporary Jewish missions. Furthermore, many New Testament texts are drained of significance that see Jesus as perfectly fitting a mold that the Old Testament writers built text by text. Rydelnik corrects these interpretations and shows how the OT continually points to Christ.

Publisher's Description

In The Messianic Hope, book six of the New American Commentary Studies in Bible & Theology series, Jewish Studies professor Michael Rydelnik puts forth a thesis that the Old Testament was intended by its authors to be read as a messianic primer. He explains at length how the text reveals significant direct messianic prophecy when read in its final form. Users will find this topical study an excellent extension of the long-respected New American Commentary series.

    This is a great resource, and I had never heard much of what I read in this book. The author doesn't settle for soft evangelical views of Old Testament messianic prophecies (such as dual-fulfillment views of passages that have historically been viewed as completely messianic) and directly challenges those and more liberal views.
