Commentaries from ancient Jewish Rabbis who lived righteous lives point to and identify The Man: the Messiah of Israel.
Although not Scripture, the writings of various Targums and the Sanhedrin confirm the identity of the Messiah. Both appearances of Messiah are clearly identified by ancient rabbinical writings.
God called one man, the man Abraham, to bring forth a nation. And He called that nation, Israel, to bring forth The Man: the Messiah!
Rabbi Yanai Sanhedrin 98, folio 2, says concerning the Messiah, "His name will be Yenon, as it is written, 'His Name shall be continued as long as the sun'." The word "Yenon" is the word which in this verse is translated "continued", and means both "I AM" and "I WILL BE".
A Midrash on Psalm 18:36 says, referring to this passage :"...'Sit Thou at my right hand,' is especially applied to the Messiah: Abraham is seated at the left." [See Edersheim, App. 9]
