The Torah lays the foundation for the biblical proclamation of the coming Messiah.  Genesis deals with the promised Seed (3:15), covenant with the patriarchs (12:1-3; 22:16-18, and the Lion of Judah (49:8-12).  Numbers focuses on the Distant Star (24:5-9, 15-19) while Deuteronomy considers the foundations of Messianic Kingship (Dt 17:14-20) and the Prophet like Moshe (18:15-19).
