VIII. Summary

Mountain Ram

The Scriptures speak of the Messiah's death in Zech 12 &13, and Daniel 9. It speaks of the Messiah's everlasting rule in Daniel 7, and a general resurrection in Ezekiel 37, Isaiah 26, and Hosea 5-6. So in the most natural order of those events, the Messiah, whose kingdom is everlasting, would die and resurrect.

II.(A) Zechariah 12: Mourning for the Pierced One

And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced. (John 19:37)Collapse )

III. The Psalms of David

Mountain Ram

The Scriptures use David as a poetic image for the Messiah, and David in the Psalms describes himself as someone who dies and resurrects.

III.(A) The Messiah Son of David 


Hath not the scripture said, That Christ cometh of the seed of David...? (John 7:42)Collapse )



Mountain Ram

Isaiah 52:13-53 describes the Messiah as God's Servant whose soul becomes a sacrificial "guilt offering," after which the Messiah resurrects and rules.

IV.(A) The Lord's Servant as the Messiah

from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:15)Collapse )
