Shutting the Door on Messianic Possibilities: Why Judaism Rejects a Messiah Who is Both Suffering Servant and Victorious King
This is just a musing from today...
There are Messianic prophecies in the Torah where the Messiah comes as a suffering servant who dies for the sins of Israel and then there are Messianic prophecies in the Torah where the Messiah comes as a victorious King riding in the clouds.
The Torah never says that this will be two different Messiahs. It leaves room for the possibility that there is ONE Messiah who dies and comes back to life.
But non-Messianic Judaism closes the door on that option.
