Messiah is a Human Not God!
Professor Reza Aslan reveals the Jews were expecting a human messiah - they were not expecting God. This militates against the Trinitarian view of Jesus being a god-man. It further points to the Islamic view of Jesus (p).
There is, however, one thing about which all the prophecies seem to agree: the messiah is a human being, not divine. Belief in a divine messiah would have been anathema to everything Judaism represents, which is why, without exception, every text in the Hebrew Bible dealing with the messiah presents him as performing his messianic functions on earth, not in heaven.
