    The OT prophets, and OT texts in general...

    Does the OT portray the coming Messiah as being "Just" a man, indwelt by HS, say as another King David?

    Did It really see Him coming as God/man , just the prophecies were misunderstood, and as such, the jewish people would accept a man as the messiah, but not as God coming as a man!

    They knew one was coming like Moses, to free them from sin. But the mysteries of it were hidden to them until Christ came.

    Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith—

    Romans 16:25-26

    Does The Spirit God in heaven give us salvation in the Christ as the Christ being
    God, 100% God/100%man or man?

    1 Cor. 15:21,22 for since through man the death, also through man a rising again of the dead, for even as in Adam all die, so also in the Christ all shall be made alive,

    Ponder. Since through man, also through man
    For as in (man) Adam, so also in (man) the Christ

    1 Cor 15:16-18 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. (As the above animals.) (However)
    Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. (There is a contrast here between what his death did and what His resurrected life will do.) Titus 3:5 by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit; (Was done for Jesus that we might receive it)
    (Jesus received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father which was then given to us through Jesus, which makes us heirs according to the hope of eternal life that we receive at his coming by resurrection/change)

    Could the above have been accomplished as the Christ being 100% God?
    As 100% God/100% man?
    As man the only begotten Son of God?
