The prophets’ of old foretold the coming of The Messiah. He would come at a time of oppression. At a time when there was a time of suffering from separation.
At this time the Jewish religion was based on worship of law and beliefs. Forgetting the principal of Love and understanding beyond words and law.
Man began to believe that the Kingdom of God was relegated to a human experience on a material plane.
Only a few (priests) could understand the mysteries of faith, thus the masses were spiritually saved.
The Messiah would be the Bridge between Humanity and Divinity, teaching and representing Love and understanding of faith and beyond laws and scriptures, the mysteries of faith.
The Messiah would come. Love Itself would take the form of Jesus of Nazareth. He is the Light that would infuse them with knowledge and experience of their Divine Nature and Oneness with their Source. Jesus, The Son (perfect reflection) of God, was the Unseen, seen in human form.
Jesus was far greater than any prophet or saint. A prophet or saint realizes their Divinity within. Jesus was and is Divinity Itself. Fully manifested as the Son (perfect reflection) of God, the Christ.
