The Seer was who we can be
But was made a messiah
And now the eyes that still can see
Hark back to Jeremiah
+
We reach a point in our narration
where it is necessary to say our no
to the messianic reality of the received text
It is an existential choice
a break with the messianic core 
of much of the New Testament
The contention is that
the Seer had in mind what is
and did not aspire to do anything but
demonstrate what is
but that the earliest followers were intent
on repeating the mistakes of their ancestors
and rejecting the purifying efforts 
of the prophets - such as Isaiah
Amos and Jeremiah
