Wright attempts to tie the old Christian churches role in with OT account of the coming of the Messiah. There again, we see evidence of purpose of Jesus and his ultimate role to restore Israel to prominence and return them to the land that God had promised them. Zechariah 9:9 is evidence that there will be one that will arise and show favour to Israel We that Wright points out how Israel will be used by God will enact is salvation and judgment.

Also, ‘the angels are sons of God’, (Job 1:6 NIV, TLB), in a sense that they are His creation.” (Sleman 12).
