I was wondering whether you could shed some light on the concept of the messiah in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Also, with reference to the current state of the Muslims today, what hope, if any, have we got for a messianic figure to appear to sort out this mess?
Both Judaism and Islam teach that the arrival of a new prophet will mark the dawn of a new era.
The Christian concept of a Messiah has little in common with the Jewish and Muslim understanding.
Both Christians and Muslims believe Jesus(peace be upon him) is the Messiah.
