David Murray writes:
Did Old Testament believers have any expectation of a Divine Messiah?
When I was recently asked that question, my instinctive reaction was to say “No.”
The Old Testament believers knew that the Messiah would be a man, that he would suffer, and that he would be glorified after his sufferings (Gen. 3:15; Luke 24:25-27; 1 Peter 1:11-13). But they did not know that he would be God.
Or did they?
