Prophecies of the Messiah – The Seed of Abraham

Prophecies of the Messiah – The Seed of Abraham

The Hebrew Scriptures
In your (Abraham’s) seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice. (Genesis 22:18)

The New Testament
The book of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham: (Matthew 1:1)

Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Messiah. (Galatians 3:16)

Quotations and Comments
“The germ of the idea underlying the fuller conception of the Messianic Age was in existence from the time of the founders of the race of Israel. In thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed, was the promise given both to Abraham and Isaac. It was a promise that reached far beyond the lifetime of each, farther than the limits of the temporal kingdom their descendants founded.” (R. Samuel Singer, quoted in The Pentateuch and Haftorahs, ed. J.H.Hertz)

God’s promise to deliver us by a fellow-member of the human race becomes more specific with His choice of Abraham. The deliverer will be a descendant (seed) of Abraham, and Yeshua was such. God’s universal goal is underlined by the words “all the nations of the earth.”
