The Second Coming in the Old Testament


Where in the Old Testament is the Second Coming of Yeshua of Nazareth mentioned? It’s a very common criticism from Jews on Yeshua of Nazareth not being the Messiah. I would like to know if there is any basis for their argument.


The old joke goes that a priest and a rabbi are sitting in a bar and Jesus walks in. They are surprised of course but, to settle the argument, ask Him if this was his first or second coming. Jesus just smiles at them.


The short answer is Daniel 7 is the clearest passage. However, Isaiah also provides instances of the coming of messiah in glory. Dr. Michael Brown actually has a cool perspective on this as a Messianic Jew.
