    Natureboy, I appreciate your input on my post. I agree with you that Jesus is not coming literally back on this earth, but rather will anoint another person to fulfill the work of the second coming. Nevertheless, I believe Jesus is present spiritually supporting this work. Some of my previous posts go into this in more depth, but I believe that person is Reverend Sun Myung Moon. I also agree that John the Baptist was a type of Elijah, which I will probably write about in a future post. It is an extremely important point for understanding what happened at Jesus' time. I do disagree with you somewhat when you said what is important is the message, not the messenger, in regards to Jesus. It is true that for most of the prophets belief in the message was the central point. However, I think Jesus' case was different. Both the message and the messenger had to be believed. But I'll leave it there for now. I read through the biblical passages you referred to. I think that you were saying that Isaiah 11:1-12 is referring to the coming of two messiahs. While I see how you could arrive at that interpretation, I'm not sure I agree completely. In any case, some Jews, including probably the Essenes, as witnessed in the Dead Sea scrolls, were waiting for two messianic figures to come simultaneously:a Davidic messiah and a priestly messiah. I believe it is highly likely that some Essenes viewed John the Baptist as the fulfillment of the priestly messiah, and at least some of them viewed that position as having precedence over the kingly messiah (Jesus). But once again, I appreciate your comments, and look forward to hearing from you again. Jalan
