In this video devotional from Israel, leading up to the celebration of Jesus' death and resurrection, Christian author and Pastor Jamie Buckingham said many Jews believed the Messiah would come as a "thundering prophet" like Jeremiah. Many others believed He would be like Moses or Judas the Maccabee.
"The disciples struggled with that," Buckingham said. "As Jesus' crucifixion drew nearer, they began to realize that Jesus was not the Messiah the rabbis had taught them to expect. He was more like the Messiah prophesied by the prophet Isaiah 700 years before His birth."
No matter how He appeared, Jesus is indeed the Messiah, the Anointed One. Take a moment to watch this video and worship Jesus as your Savior.
