Top Jewish Scholar: The Blood of Messiah Redeems

A recently publicized Hebrew tablet describing the death and resurrection of a messianic figure challenges centuries of teachings by rabbinic Judaism that the redemptive process of Yeshua (Jesus) was a departure from biblical Jewish understanding. The unique stone tablet, dubbed “Gabriel’s Revelation,” contains 87 partial lines of archaic Hebrew in which the archangel commands a messianic ruler identified as the “Prince of Princes” to rise after having been dead for three days. The content of the tablet quickly made headlines after a leading Israeli professor of Bible studies, Israel Knohl of the Hebrew University, declared the text "revolutionary" in that it "changes the way we look at the historical Jesus and provides a missing link connecting Judaism and Christianity.” Israeli Messianic leaders say the tablet is further evidence that Yeshua was the kind of messiah Israel was waiting for, even if the rabbis now teach that He failed to meet the biblical messianic criteria.
