The first coming of Jesus Christ was one of suffering and rejection, Throughout the Old Testament, it was proclaimed that the Messiah was to come; while some scriptures speak of him suffering and dying, yet others speak of him reigning as a King. Needless to say this was perplexing to many, who read and interpreted the scriptures throughout the ages.

In the times that Jesus was manifested, Israel was under the rule of the Roman Empire and the people were looking for a deliverer, to lead them out of their oppression, and not a lamb who was to die for the sins of the world. As a whole, Jesus was rejected by the religious leaders of his day because of this and also their jealousy over his ministry and popularity with the common people God's plan was the salvation of the whole world, the 1st. Coming of Jesus was to provide the means for this and the second will be to reign as King over all the world. Israel failed to understand this.
