This chapter has one of the greatest Messianic prophecies in the Bible. The 6th and 7th verses clearly reveal the Jewish Messiah will be both Divine and human, and that He will be of Davidic descent. In these two verses the attributes of Immanuel are given, and these are joined to the opening verses which declare a light will shine in the tribal territories of Zebulun and Naphtali, which Matthew applies to Jesus Christ. No other figure in all history encapsulates the attributes and description of Messiah in this chapter, as does Jesus Christ.
