the jewish messiah, will be a human being who will have to fullfill the following criteria to be considered the jewish messiahAwaiting_the_fifth said:Peace,
I have been reading some other threads about how Jews do not accept that Jesus was the Messiah. Can I just say that I accept this 100%, Im not recruiting Jews for Jesus or anything.
I was wondering though, what do Jews mean when they say messiah? Who will he be? What is his purpose? When is he expected etc.
One thing I have heard (from the discovery channel so probably not too reliable) is that the messiah is to be a warlike leader who would free the Jews. But of course, the Jews are free today. What's that about? Please feel free to correct me here.
I would like to stress that I mean no offense to the Jewish religion, but I was raised a Catholic and was taught that Jesus was the messiah, I would like to hear the other side of the argument.
he will ,be a direct male biological decendent of king david through his son sollomon (genesis49 10 & issiah 11 1)
he will rebuild the temple in jerusalem ( ezekiel 37 26-28)
he will gather all the exiled jews back to israel (issaiah 43 5-6)
he will usher in world peace(isaiah 2 4)
he will spread universal knowladge of the one true G-D (zecheriah 14 9 )
who ever fails to fullfill this criteria is not the jewish messiah
jesus didnt fulfill this criteria so he is not the jewish messiah as prophosised in hebrew scripture
