Prophecying on the Messianic age, Ezekiel tells us...
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God." (Ezekiel 37 21-23)
Hosea 3:4-5 says...
So when the Messiah arrives, we're told...
Now some say Y'shua didn't do this on his first coming, thus he cannot be the Messiah. Well, neither did David. In fact, David was dead as a doornail when this prophecy was spoken of him, and yet Ezekiel, talking AFTER David's death, speaks of a future time when David will once again rule over all Israel, rebuild the temple, etc, and peace will reign everywhere as all men learn of the true Creator. David cannot fullfill this prophecy unless Elohim raises David from the dead. So if David needs two lifetimes to fullfill every messianic prophecy about him, then there's no reason to disqualify Y'shua on the grounds that it will take more than one lifetime to fullfill every Messianic prophecy about The Messiah. In fact, we're even told in Jerimiah/Yermiyah 30:9,
"they will serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them. "
So here we're told G-d will raise David from the dead in order to fullfill these prophecies.
All of those arguments about Y'shua not rebuilding the temple or bringing world peace disqualifying Him just don't wash when we read Ezekiel, Jerimiah, or Hosea, because Ezekiel makes these same prophecies on another annointed, namely David, who was already dead. Elohim also promised David that until his Resurrection, he would never fail to have a son sit on his throne.
Of course, David cannot be THE Messiah himself since Elohim promised the Messiah would be one of David's sons. And it's clear the Messiah could not have been merely a man for Isa 11 calls Him both the Root and Offspring of Jesse, and David himself calls the Messiah "Lord" by saying
Ps 110:1 "The L-RD said to my Lord"
Now no son is greater than his father. Surely David would not call a merely human descendant of his "lord". The only way a descendant of David could be a "Lord" over David himself would be if that person where more than human - G-d Himself, appearing in the flesh. It would have to be the Malach of HaShem, the "lesser HaShem" the scriptures hint at in telling us there are two beings named "Y''H"/HaShem yet HaShem is one. Isaiah 11 tells us the Messiah will be the Root and the Branch of Jesse.
If the gospels are not true, then how could David call the Messiah "lord"? How could we explain that his throne has not endured in this earth since his days? How do we explain the fact that he has not fullfilled the prophecies about himself of reigning under THE Messiah and rebuilding the temple? The gospel explanation is the only explanation that makes sense. If it is not true, then Tanakh must not be true either.
The Talmud tells us "Woe" because the Messianic Era has passed and the Messiah did not come. They were half right. It has passed, but the Messiah came on schedule - some just did not recognize Him.
Hosea 3:4-5 says...
Israel has gone many days since 70 AD "without sacrifice or sacred pillar". The timing of seeking "David their king" is put after "many days...without sacrifice or sacred pillar" - which is now.
There are several places where Ancient Jewish commentators have said that Messiah will come twice.
"And it shall come to pass... when the time of the advent of the Messiah is fulfilled, that he shall return in glory." - 2 Syraic Baruch 30:1 (1st century CE with emphasis added)
The Zohar says...
"the Messiah will be carried up to heaven in that pillar of fire and recieve there power and dominion and the royal crown. [Fullfilled Acts 1, Rev 4:11,5:12-13] When he descends, the pillar of fire will again be visible to the eyes of the world [Revelation 1:7 "Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him"] and Messiah will reveal himself [Matt 24:30], and mighty nations will gather round him, and he shall declare war against all the world. [Rev 19:14-21]" (Zohar on Exodus/Shemot, 7b)
Although there's a few differences between the Zoharic explanation and the New Testament, including the absence of any mention that Messiah would die, The Zohar still paints a picture that contains striking parallels with the New Testament.
There's a prayer in the Musaf service of Yom Kippur found in some older prayer books that reads:
"Our righteous Messiah has departed from us. We are horror-stricken and have none to justify us. Upon his shoulders he carried our sins and through his wounds we find forgiveness... From Seir let the Redeemer come, from Mount Lebanon let him proclaim redemption a second time through thy servant." - Oz Melifnei Beresheet prayer
All of which sounds like a rather blatant admission of the role of Yeshua as Messiah.
R. Berekiah said in the name of R. Levi (Enc. Jud. Vol.11, p.100, 3rd century CE):
"The future Redeemer will be like the former Redeemer (Moses). Just as the former Redeemer revealed himself and later was hidden from them, (and how long was he hidden?) Three months, as it is said, 'And they met Moses and Aaron' - Ex. 5:20), so the future Redeemer will be revealed to them, and then be hidden from them." - Ruth Rabbah 5:6
This passage speaks of a short period of concealment for the future Redeemer, but if Messiah is to be a prophet "like unto Moshé / Moses" (Deut/Dev 18), then a longer period of concealment would make more sense, since Moses left Egypt for 40 years before he returned.
R. Shimon ben Yohai (2nd century CE) predicts that Messiah ben David will appear while Israel is being oppressed by the Antichrist (in Jewish tradition known as Armilus), but will hide Himself because of Israel's rejection of Him:
"...And Messiah ben Ephraim will die there [in the desert], and Israel will mourn him. And thereafter the Holy One, blessed be He, will reveal to them Messiah ben David, and Israel will want to stone him and they will say to him: 'You spoke lies, for already the Messiah was killed and no other Messiah will arise.' And they will despise him... And he will retire and hide himself from them..." - Nistarot R. Shim'on b. Yohai, Bet haMidrash 3:80
The passage goes on to say that Messiah ben David will return at a later time.
