I suppose when you base your religion upon the idea that the king is somehow the main man talking to god, I can see why the Jews would expect such.<quoted text>They were looking for a messiah that had the appearance of a king to begin with. It all started when Jesus was born. You must know the story with King Herod. The message of the Angel spread quickly. Who would have believed the Messiah was born in a stable? Etc. Etc. "That's how the fight started." Yet OT prophecy foretold that He would "come forth as a root out of dry ground, having no comliness that any should 'desire' Him". He came to His own and they received Him not. You know the story. Today the Jews are still at the wailing wall praying for the Messiah to come. It will all be over with one day and they will still be there at the wall. It was never that they didn't get an answer, they just didn't want that answer. It happened just as prophecy claimed it would. Problem is people do not search the Scriptures. All the answers are there if one bothers to look. The Jews have no idea that they have been freed from the bondage of the Law.
They think King David was such a man, they think Moses was such a man, so why would they not expect the Messiah not to be such a man?
Of course it is quite stupid to think kings are the man man talking to god. But you base your beliefs upon this concept also if you believe Jesus was a descendant of king David.
But we know most every king in those days made claim they were the one to listen to about what god wants.
Have you watched "The Bible" series on the history channel yet? The story really illustrates this concept. It is a story of politics and how leaders use god to claim authority over people.
You and your kind just have no figured out this is a propaganda tactic that has zero basis in actual truth of a god.
Some political leaders today are fighting to put the bible into schools as part of this propaganda tactic.
