The Code of the Messiah in the Tanach
הצופן של המשיח בתנך

The Code of the Messiah in the Tanach

הצופן של המשיח בתנך


Hidden in the Tanach תנך is the code of the Messiah המשיח.  This code was secret, but the code has been revealed.

There is a true saying:

The Tanach is the New Testament concealed,

The New Testament is the Tanach revealed.

התנך זה הברית חדשה חבוי

הברית חדשה זה התנך גלוי  

In accordance with this saying, there is a verse in the New Testament in which the code is revealed.  This verse or statement is as follows:

For the Torah came by Moses,


 Mercy and Truth came by the Messiah Yeshua.

התורה בא על ידי משה

וחסד ואמת בא על ידי המשיח ישוע

This line or verse unlocks the code.

When the words mercy and truth חסד ואמת are used together, or appearing together in the Tanach תנך, this indicates the appearing or the workings of the Messiah המשיח

The Prophet Micah מיכה declares:

And you, Bethlehem Ephrathah-you have been the lowest of the thousands of Judah-from you [he] shall emerge for Me, to be a ruler over Israel;

and his origin and goings forth are from of old, from the ancient days.

וְאַתָּה בֵּית לֶחֶם אֶפְרָתָה צָעִיר לִהְיוֹת בְּאַלְפֵי יְהוּדָה

מִמְּךָ לִי יֵצֵא לִהְיוֹת מוֹשֵׁל בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל

 וּמוֹצָאֹתָיו מִקֶּדֶם מִימֵי עוֹלָם:

Micah 5:2   מיכה ה:ב

So where are these “goings forth”

or appearings or workings of the Messiah המשיח in the Tanach תנך?

A few of these are numbered below:

  1. The journey of the servant of Abraham:  Abraham sends his trusted servant to find a wife for his son Isaac.  The Messiah accompanies the servant, and guides him until he finds Rebecca as the wife for Isaac.

 And the man kneeled and prostrated himself to the Lord.

And he said, “Blessed is the Lord, the God of my master, Abraham, Who has not forsaken

His mercy and His truth

 from my master. As for me, the Lord led me on the road to the house of my master’s kinsmen.”

וַיִּקֹּד הָאִישׁ וַיִּשְׁתַּחוּ לַיהֹוָה

וַיֹּאמֶר בָּרוּךְ יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵי אֲדֹנִי אַבְרָהָם אֲשֶׁר לֹא עָזַב

 חַסְדּוֹ וַאֲמִתּוֹ

מֵעִם אֲדֹנִי אָנֹכִי בַּדֶּרֶךְ נָחַנִי יְהֹוָה בֵּית אֲחֵי אֲדֹנִי

Genesis 24:26-27 בראשית כד:כו-כז

  1. The Messiah המשיח appears to Jacob and prepares him to meet his brother Esau when Jacob is returning to the land of Israel with his family.

And Jacob said, “O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the Lord, Who said to me, ‘Return to your land and to your birthplace, and I will do good to you.’

I have become small from all the mercy and from all the truth that You have rendered Your servant, for with my staff I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two camps.”

וַיֹּאמֶר יַעֲקֹב אֱלֹהֵי אָבִי אַבְרָהָם וֵאלֹהֵי אָבִי יִצְחָק יְהֹוָה הָאֹמֵר אֵלַי שׁוּב לְאַרְצְךָ וּלְמוֹלַדְתְּךָ וְאֵיטִיבָה עִמָּךְ

קָטֹנְתִּי מִכֹּל הַחֲסָדִים וּמִכָּל הָאֱמֶת אֲשֶׁר עָשִׂיתָ אֶת עַבְדֶּךָ כִּי בְמַקְלִי עָבַרְתִּי אֶת הַיַּרְדֵּן הַזֶּה וְעַתָּה הָיִיתִי לִשְׁנֵי מַחֲנוֹת

Genesis 32:10-11 בראשית לב:י-יא-

  1. Jacob sees the Messiahהמשיח  again when he is in Egypt.  The Messiah appears when Jacob makes Joseph swear to him that he will bury his body in the cave Machpelah in Hebron and not leave it in Egypt. The Messiah המשיח  continues to manifest himself when Jacob blesses the two sons of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh, and later pronounces blessings upon the twelve tribes.

When the time drew near for Israel to die, he called his son Joseph and said to him, “If I have now found favor in your eyes, now place your hand beneath my thigh, and you shall deal with me with

mercy  (lovingkindness) and truth;

do not bury me now in Egypt.

I will lie with my forefathers, and you shall carry me out of Egypt, and you shall bury me in their grave.” And he said, “I will do as you say.”

And he said, “Swear to me. ” So he swore to him, and Israel worshipped on the head of the bed.

וַיִּקְרְבוּ יְמֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל לָמוּת וַיִּקְרָא לִבְנוֹ לְיוֹסֵף וַיֹּאמֶר לוֹ אִם נָא מָצָאתִי חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ שִׂים נָא יָדְךָ תַּחַת יְרֵכִי וְעָשִׂיתָ עִמָּדִי

חֶסֶד וֶאֱמֶת

 אַל נָא תִקְבְּרֵנִי בְּמִצְרָיִם

וְשָׁכַבְתִּי עִם אֲבֹתַי וּנְשָׂאתַנִי מִמִּצְרַיִם וּקְבַרְתַּנִי בִּקְבֻרָתָם וַיֹּאמַר אָנֹכִי אֶעְשֶׂה כִדְבָרֶךָ

וַיֹּאמֶר הִשָּׁבְעָה לִי וַיִּשָּׁבַע לוֹ

וַיִּשְׁתַּחוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל עַל רֹאשׁ הַמִּטָּה

Genesis 49:29-31 בראשית מט:כט-לא


  1. In another instance, when HASHEM passes before Moses, revealing and displaying His glory, Moses sees the Messiahהמשיח  while he is hidden and protected in the cleft of the rock. The Messiah המשיח is in the midst of the name of HASHEM.

And the Lord descended in the cloud and stood with him there, and He called out in the name of the Lord.

And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed: Lord, Lord, benevolent God, Who is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger

 and abundant in mercy (loving kindness) and truth,
