  1. Because many of th prophecies described the Messiah as a glorious king who would liberate them from their oppression and establish an everlasting kingdom. hey were expecting then what we are expecting now.

  2. The prophecies in the Old Testatement gave both the prophecy of the Messiah and the coming Kingdom. For example the “lion will lie down with the lamb.” Isaiah 11. So the prophecies were given with both in mind, the coming of the Messiah and the reconciliation of the world to Him. And the reality was the disciples were expected “thy Kingdom come” right away. They forgot the most important step between the two – the taking of the “good news” to the ends of the earth.

    In Revelation we do not see the babe in the manger, or the Christ on the cross, we see a Savior who is the “lion of the tribe of Judah.” And we see the avenger of all that is wrong who has fire in His eyes. “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
