Some Christological Components... First Century Judaism

of the “Messiah”:
  1. Kingship (symbolized by Temple)
  2. Defeat of Israel's enemies (symbolized by Battle)
of the “Son of God”:
  1. Israel as she should be (righteous remnant)
  2. The head of/representative of Israel to come – the King (of the Jews)
of the “Son of Man”:
  1. establish the kingdom of Yahweh
  2. receive authority and power over kingdom
*none of these titles in Judaism refer to a divine or quasi-divine figure*
