George Fredrick Handel was not a theologian, Bible scholar, evangelist or Christian educator, but his heart was open to the beautiful, the powerful and the triumphant. Handel understood the obvious - that the Old Testament Hebrew Scriptures had Jesus as their subject and that the salvation and succoring of humanity was the mission of Jesus, The Messiah of mankind.
