Foreword by John J. CollinsBefore we can understand the message of Jesus, we must have some knowledge of the messianic concepts of his time. This book by Sigmund Mowinckel, one of the premier biblical scholars of the twentieth century, offers the most comprehensive study of messianic thought in the Bible available.Featuring a new foreword by John J. Collins, He That Cometh first explores the antecedents of the term "messiah" in the Old Testament, focusing on the idea of a coming future king in early Jewish eschatology. It then examines the messianic concept as used in later Judaism and in the early church. The book concludes with an impressive discussion of the phrase "Son of Man," the term Jesus himself used to interpret his own messianic mission.ContentsAuthor's Preface to the American EditionTranslator's PrefaceForeword, by John J.
