Is Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, actually divine? What is His nature and where might the serious student derive such scriptural support for His being God in fleshly form? According to Dr. Michael Brown, Judaism has never had one, official universally accepted set of beliefs concerning the Messiah, but it is true that traditional Jewish teaching does not speak unequivocally of a divine Messiah. Jewish tradition often describes a highly exalted Messiah as well as a pre-existent Messiah, so much so that Jewish scholars have sometimes spoken of His nature as "semi-divine." Does the Scripture argue otherwise?
