I think we both know the answers, but if you want my personal "further explanation", the House of Israel had in their records two distinct accounts of the coming of the Messiah. Some ancient leaders secretly removed references to the one, but chose to keep and believe in the other. The one they ignored was the description of him coming to be hated and scorned, and the one they kept was the description of his coming in glory to fight their battle against their enemies.
The deceiving leaders didn't tamper with the Book of Isaiah because of how it was written. The book of Isaiah is the most quoted and least disturbed of all the books in the Old Testament. (verified in Qumran discoveries of the dead sea scrolls)

The point I was trying to make in my other post was when the Messiah comes we will all recognize him. There will be no dispute as to who he is. People of my group believe this will be His "second" coming. Members of the house of Judah believe it will be his "first" coming.

People of my faith have the Book of Mormon. It is the history of one group from the house of Joseph of the House of Israel (not Judah) who were guided to what we know as the American continent in 600 BC to escape the destruction of Jerusalem. They were commanded to take with them the brass plates containing ancient records so their children would not dwindle in unbelief. Parts of these records are quoted in the Book of Mormon, which is a very brief summary of records kept by prophets on this continent over a 1000 year period. The books of Zenoc and Zenos, neither of which are in our present Old Testament and both of which testify of Christ are quoted in the Book of Mormon.

Without all of the words of all of the prophets it is difficult to interpret some of the words of some of the prophets.

I for one believe in all of the words of all of the prophets, including the words that refer to "one" God. God is God Lou, can anyone dispute that?
