Today, Jesus is the best known example, but no one thought he was a messiah then. Thats because a messiah was originally an anointed king, one of those folks doused in holy olive oil and wearing a crown.

Somehow, the whole idea changed into a heavenly being sent by God to rule over all of mankind. Moreover, when the Messiah shows up, the world will end.Since everyone wants to know when Armageddon gets here, dozens of kooks, religious fanatics and misguided men and women have claimed to be messiahs in the intervening years. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all awaiting the real one.This book explains when to expect the real messiah by exploring the history of the idea.

Readers are introduced to a host of people from almost every era who insisted they were the messiah. The text then focuses on a false messiah from the 1600s, Sabbatai Sevi, who, like Jesus, actually started an existing religion.By examining the life and times of Sabbatai Sevi, readers will realize that the conditions he lived encouraged people to believe his claims.

Then, well see that the same circumstances prevailed at the time of Jesus.The book develops the theory that events produced the messiah and then surveys history to prove that point.The book is the first attempt not only to study the messiah concept, but to provide a rational base for the belief.
