The Messiah in Judaism is a savior and liberator figure in Jewish eschatology, who is believed to be the future redeemer of the Jewish people. The concept of messianism originated in Judaism, and in the Hebrew Bible a messiah is a king or High Priest traditionally anointed with holy anointing oil.

However, messiahs were not exclusively Jewish, as the Hebrew Bible refers to Cyrus the Great, king of Persia, as a messiah for his decree to rebuild the Jerusalem Temple.

In Jewish eschatology, the Messiah is a future Jewish king from the Davidic line, who is expected to be anointed with holy anointing oil and rule the Jewish people during the Messianic Age and world to come. The Messiah is often referred to as “King Messiah” or malka meshiḥa in Aramaic.

The belief about the birth and emergence of a divine saviour was and remains well established among the Jews. They believed that Elijah had ascended to the heavens and would descend at the End of Time to deliver the Children of Israel.

The Great Reformer in the View of Jews

One of the beliefs of the Jews is the advent of a Universal reformer in the Last Age. He is the one who would purify the evil manners of the people. The Jews are anticipating a revolution from the Progeny of Prophet Dawood in such a way that even if his lips move in prayers, all the communities shall be destroyed. This Promised one in the view of the Jews is the savior who was promised to the Jews.

Description of the Advent of the Reformer of Jews

As for the description of the advent of the reformer of the Jews, a prophet named Ashiya has said as follows:

Very soon, one who is from the Progeny of Prophet Dawood shall arise and the Holy Spirit would enter into him and the Spirit of Wisdom, understanding, power, recognition of the fear of God would become dominant on him. He shall rule with justice for the good of the oppressed people and procure justice for them and destroy the hypocrites. He would establish peace and security in such a way that all the people would live a life of peace and prosperity.

Biblical References of the Awaited Saviour in Judaism

And in the Old Testament the book of Genesis 18:20 “And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee; Behold, I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and I will multiply him exceedingly, Twelve Princes shall he beget and I will make him a great nation”

The passages speak of a Messiah, and we believe that this saviour is Jesus.

However, Jews believe this Messiah has not yet come, and they are awaiting his appearance. Moreover, the text includes the coming of others as well. When Prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) was asked by people whether he was the Messiah or the Prophet, he replied that he was neither, but told them that a prophet will come after the Messiah.

In the chapter 72 of the Psalms, 19 verses revolve around the establishment of justice by the son of the king who will treat all people

– especially the poor – with fairness. Even the mountains will bring peace to the world, and blessings would emanate from every direction. This great man will defeat the unjust people who would fear him, and in the end the glorified name of God will fill the entire earth.

Again in the chapter 37 of the Psalms, we read that the earth shall be inherited by righteous people. Verse nine says that the people waiting for God will be those who inherit the earth, and thereafter there will be no wicked person remaining.

In 35 out of the 150 parts of psalms, Coming of Savior (The Psalms of David) is mentioned. For the evildoers shall be cut off,” but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land. In just a little while, the wicked will be no more…”

In the book Isaiah: “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit. And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him…but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth.”

There are some brief descriptions of the conditions of advent in this book; The wolf shall dwell with the lamb,” and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them …

They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. And it emphasizes on the Divine Expectation: although their delay, wait for him, cause they come with no hesitation.”

In the Old Testament, it is written that: “Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning. Be like men watching for their lord, when he returns from the marriage feast; that, when he comes and knocks, they may immediately open to him. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord will find watching when he comes….. Therefore be ready also, for the Son of Man is coming in an hour that you don’t expect him.”

Luke 12:35-36

In the Old #Testament, the divine book of the Jews, it is mentioned that; “A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him…… with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. …… The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the lair of the cobra and put his hand into it. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.”

Isaiah 11:1-10
