Israel turned aside to sin. Therefore, they failed to fulfil Godís purpose for them. However, God in His mercy promised to send them a Redeemer from the seed of David. He was anointed ( Messiah= Anointed One) with Godís Holy Spirit for this reason. The coming of this Messiah is a central theme of the Old Testament. The Prophets very carefully describe how he would come and what He would do.

In the first century, Jewish writers who believed these promises described a man who fulfilled them and whom they acknowledged as Messiah. Their writings were collected in the New Testament. The questions in this study refer partly to the Old Testament and partly to the New Testament.
