The Old Testament regards the coming messianic figure to be of the line of King David, clearly making him a human being (as David was). In fact, there are so many passages repeating and expounding this "Son of David" theology that it will require two episodes of the Biblical Unitarian Podcast to cover them all, and those are just the ones within the Old Testament.
If the Messiah was to descend from the line of King David, then he would be both an authentic human figure as well as one who was distinct from Israel's God, Yahweh. Our discussion on the Messiah as a descendant of David will surely give you something to talk about with your friends and family as it pertains to Jesus' identity and vocation.
