There are other passages in the Old Testament that have been described as messianic prophecies. Fitzmyer splits these into two categories those from before the monarchy which do not strictly describe a “Messiah” and those which talk of a continuation of the Davidic dynasty and begin to reveal the future hope of a Messiah. He argues that it is later Jewish and Christian tradition that has interpreted the former passages as referring to a coming Messiah. Examples include reference to Judah rising above the other tribes from Genesis 99:65 and Numbers 79:67 and God’s promise to Moses to raise up a prophet like him from Deuteronomy 68:65-68.

Unit 6 contains God 696 s command to sacrifice Isaac on a mountain. Moriah is impossible to locate geographically. The later tradition of 7 Chronicles 8:6 identifies Mount Moriah with the site of Solomon 696 s temple. The connection this story draws between Abraham and Solomon 696 s temple through the interpretation of the Chronicles tradition gives the site of the temple an ancestral connection hence, the site acquires greater venerability.
7. Offspring. Israel understood itself as having descended from Abraham in a line of succession miraculously engineered by God. Many of the stories touch on the question of family succession: conceiving, having children, determining the line of inheritance. The frequent genealogies and the toledot structure of Genesis reinforce this overall theme.

The first sentence of this unit is the theme statement. 697 Elohim tested Abraham 698 gives us the purpose of the story right at the beginning. God was testing Abraham 696 s faith. Many Elohist stories have to do with faith and faithfulness. Interest in this theme can be partially explained by conditions at the time the Elohist source was written. It was a time of severe testing in Israel, and a story like this assured the people that God was behind such testing and it served a purpose.

. Wright states that after the exile most Jews were hoping for a turn in Israel’s fortunes that God would restore her fortunes. He writes “the symbols of covenantal life will be restored, because the covenant will be renewed: the Temple will be rebuilt, the Land cleansed, the Torah kept perfectly by a new covenant people with renewed hearts.”  Hope was placed in this “age to come”, sometimes described as “the messianic age.” . Wright describes “the ‘salvation’ spoken of in the Jewish sources of this period has to do with rescue from the national enemies, restoration of the national symbols, and a state of shalom in which every man will sit under his vine or fig tree.”
