Servant of Christ

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: The Prophet and the Messiah are the Same

Submitted by Sohail (United Kingdom), Jan 7, 2007 at 09:28

Jesus is the Prophet and the Messiah. The Jews weren't quite sure whether or not the Messiah, the Prophet, and Elijah were different people. This is not a contradiction nor an argument against the doctrine of Christianity.

However Jesus never denied that he was the Prophet, openly said he was the Christ and the Son of God, and forgave sins. Who is the Angel of the LORD? He is Jesus Christ the Son, who is God.

Here are two more verses which show that messiah and prophet are different:

40On hearing his words, some of the people said, "Surely this man is the Prophet."

41Others said, "He is the Christ." John 7:40-41

Again who tell me another lie the Jews were sure that the messiah and the prophet were different but they didn't know who Jesus was.
