Overview

Since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, biblical scholars have had the opportunity to reevaluate traditional understandings of Israel's messiah. In recent years there has been much discussion about what sort of messiah the Jewish people were expecting and whether Jesus confirmed or challenged their expectations.

This book provides an up-to-date discussion of messiah in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Returning to the present, it also examines how Christians in Latin America have understood Jesus as a source of messianic hope and liberation.

The volume will be a valuable addition to the libraries of scholars, students, pastors, and serious lay readers.
