Kesher 41 – Presence and Involvement: The Pre-incarnate Messiah in the History of Israel
Presence and Involvement: The Pre-incarnate Messiah in the History of Israel is the second of a triptych of articles that appears in Kesher, A Journal of Messianic Judaism. It appeared in Issue 41 (Summer/Fall 2022) and can be found here.
The first article For Better and for Worse: The Faithfulness of God through the Exile and the Return of the Shekhinah, appeared in Kesher 38 (Winter/Spring 2021). It can be found here.
The third article on Suffering Israel: Sharing the Sufferings of God and Messiah? will appear in the next Issue 42 (Winter/Spring 2023).
Kesher’s Editor-in-chief Rabbi Russ Resnik wrote about this trilogy: “In tracing Israel’s journey through exile and suffering, Westerman discovers unrecognized aspects of the relationship between God, Messiah, and the Jewish people that have profound implications for Messianic communal life today.” (Kesher, Issue 41, page 2)
