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!

Deuteronomy 18:15-19

   "A Prophet from among thee, of thy brethren, like unto me, will the LORD thy God raise up unto thee, to Him shall ye hearken."   [Targum Onkelos]

    "And a righteous Prophet (Prophet of Righteousness) will the LORD your God give you, a Prophet from among you, of your brethren like unto me with the HOLY SPIRIT, will the LORD your God raise up unto you; to Him shall ye be obedient."  [Targum Palestine]

    "In fact the Messiah is such a Prophet, as it is stated in the Midrash on the verse, "Behold, My Servant shall prosper ..."   "Moses by the miracles which he wrought drew but a single nation to the worship of God, but the Messiah will draw ALL NATIONS to the worship of God."   [R. Levi ben Gershom]
