Overview

The object of The Jewish Messiah is twofold. It endeavors to exhibit the doctrine concerning the Messiah as it was held among the Jews in the centuries during which Christianity appeared; and, as subsidiary to this main purpose, it seeks to introduce the English reader to the apocalyptic and kindred literature. He divides his study into two parts: “Sources” and “History.” Before diving into the historical idea of the Messiah, Drummond offers a survey of the Sibylline Oracles, the Book of Enoch, the Assumption of Moses, the fourth book of Ezra, the Apocalypse of Baruch, the Psalms of Solomon, and more, plus valuable discussion of the Targums, the Talmud, and other rabbinical works.
