Representative Messiahship

Jesus “was Israel’s representative Messiah, who summed up the life and story of the people in himself, brought Israel’s history to its appointed if shocking and unexpected climax, and formed in himself the nucleus of the ‘people’ who, called now from all nations, were to inherit the promises and take forward the purposes of the one God.”  (Wright, N.T., 2013, p. 405)
