Abstract

The picture of the warrior Messiah depicted in the Old Testament as a future redeemer figure matches that of Jesus as the warrior in the New Testament, fighting against the cosmic evil power. The warrior’s struggle takes place in a cosmic, heavenly dimension rather than earthly, utilizing the word from his mouth as the only weapon to defeat the demons and the evil hosts. Strong unity and continuity of the motif are detected within the Old and New Testaments, as well as between the Testaments.[from publisher's website]
