Messiah from islam, judaism, christian?

Which is the real AntiChrist? Muslims? The Cristians? or the Jews?
Christians believe that the Messiah was Jesus, but Jews do not believe that. Christians believe that Jesus' claims to be God go against the beliefs of Judaism.

JUDAISM

The concept of the messiah is neither common nor unified in the Tanakh. The term is used in the Hebrew Bible to describe Israelite priests, prophets, and kings who were anointed with oil in consecration to their respective offices. For example, Cyrus the Great, the king of Persia, is referred to as "God's anointed" (Messiah) in the Bible.

The Tanakh contains a number (the number is debated) of prophecies concerning a future descendant of King David who will be anointed as the Jewish people's new leader (moshiach).

Christians believe that Daniel (Hebrew: דָּנִיֵּאל, or Daniyyel) was a prophet and gave an indication of when the Messiah, the prince mashiyach nagiyd, would come.(Daniel 9:25-26) Daniel's prophecies refer to him as a descendant of King David who will rebuild the nation of Israel, destroy the wicked, and ultimately judge the whole world. Jews hold that the mashiach nagid mentioned in Daniel was Cyrus, king of Persia.

The Hebrew word for messiah translates to "anointed". [5] Thus, to Reform Jews there have been many messiahs—all the anointed kings and priests including David, Solomon and Aaron. When speaking of the Messiah of the future, modern Jews speak of two potential messiahs. Moshiach ben Yossef (Messiah son of Joseph) and Moshiach ben David (Messiah son of David)[6] The Hebrew ben can mean either son or descendant. In this sense it can also mean "in the manner of," I.e., there will be a "suffering servant" messiah in the manner of Joseph son of Israel/Jacob and a different messiah in the manner of King David.

A common modern rabbinic interpretation is that there is a potential messiah in every generation. The Talmud which often uses stories to make a moral point (aggadah) tells the tale of a highly respected rabbi who found the Messiah at the gates of Rome and asked him "When will you finally come?" He was quite surprised when he was told, "Today." Overjoyed and full of anticipation, the man waited all day. The next day he returned, disappointed and puzzled, and asked, "You said messiah would come 'today' but he didn't come! What happened?" The Messiah replied, "Scripture says, 'Today, if you will but hearken to His voice.' " (Psalm 95:7)

Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism believe in a unique future physical messiah who will usher in the messianic age of war before peace to the world.

Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism teach both the belief in a messiah or messiahs, or that there will be a time of peace (Messianic Era), etc., but that it will be the result of tikkun olam ("repair of the world") through human efforts toward social justice, not the actions of one man.

"Choice is the underlying reason the Reform Movement gave up the need for and belief in a single messiah who would one day bring judgment, and perhaps salvation, to the world. The fact that God imbues us with free choice mitigates the need for a messianic figure."[7]

Christianity

Main articles: Christian views of Jesus and Messianic prophecy in Christianity

Christianity emerged in the 1st century AD as a movement among Jews and their Gentile converts who believed that Jesus was the Messiah; the very name of "Christian" refers to the Greek word for 'Messiah' (χριστος Khristos). Christians commonly refer to Jesus as either the "Christ" or the "Messiah;" in Christian theology the two words are synonymous.

Christians believe Jesus to be the Messiah that Jews were expecting (John 1:41-42). The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. However, the Christian concept of the Christ/Messiah as "the Word made Flesh" is fundamentally different from the Jewish and Islamic (Shafaat, 2003) concepts because a majority of Christians believe Jesus claimed to be God (cf. John 10:37-38; 14:7-11; 17:5; 17:11 and the following):

* John 10:30 (NIV) I and the Father are one.
* John 10:33 (NIV) ."..you, a mere man, claim to be God..."
* John 14:9b (NIV) "Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father."

Furthermore, the idea can also be looked at in such a manner: I am of/from my father, yet I am my own self. Just as Jesus was of/from God, yet He is His own self.

In Christian theology, the Christ/Messiah serves four main functions:[8]

* He suffers and dies to make atonement before God for the sins of all humanity, because God's justice requires that sins be punished, according to Penal substitution theology. See for examples Isaiah 52:13-53:12 and Psalm 22, which Christianity interprets as referring to Jesus.
* He serves as a living example of how God expects people to act.
* He will establish peace and rule the world for a long time. See Nicene Creeds of 325 and 381 A.D.; Revelation 20:4-6: "… They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. 6 … they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years." (see Millennialism).
* He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and he came to earth as a human. John 1:1-2,14a: 1. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. 2. He was with God in the beginning. 14a The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. John 8:58: "Very truly I tell you," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was born, I am!"

In the New Testament, Jesus often referred to himself as 'Son of Man' (Mark 14:61-62; Luke 22:66-70), which Christianity interprets as a reference to Daniel 7:13-14 (NIV):

In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshipped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

Because Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah, and that he claimed to be the Son of Man referred to by Daniel, Christianity interprets Daniel 7:13-14 as a statement of the Messiah's authority and that the Messiah will have an everlasting kingdom. Jesus' use of this title is seen as a direct claim to be the Messiah.

Some identified Jesus as the Messiah (Mark 8:29) his opponents accused him of such a claim (Luke 23:2), and he is recorded at least twice as asserting it himself directly (Mark 14:60-62, John 4:25-26).

Christianity interprets a wide range of biblical passages in the Old Testament (Hebrew scripture) as predicting the coming of the Messiah (see Christianity and Biblical prophecy for examples), and believes that they are following Jesus' own explicit teaching:

* He said to them..."Did not the Christ/Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?" And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself." (Luke 24: 25-27, NIV)
* Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. (Luke 24:45-47, NIV).
* The book of Matthew repeatedly says, "This was to fulfill the prophecy…."

Christianity believes many of the Messianic prophecies were fulfilled in the mission, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and seeks to spread throughout the world its interpretation that the Messiah is the only Saviour, and that Jesus will return to fulfill the rest of Messianic prophecy in human form.

Islam

Muslims believe that al-Mahdi will arrive first, and after him, Jesus. Jesus will proclaim that the true leader is al-Mahdi. A war, literally Jihad (Jihade Asghar) will be fought - the Dajjal (evil) against al-Mahdi and Jesus (good). This war will mark the approach of the coming of the Last Day. After Jesus slays al-Masīh al-Dajjāl (literally "the Deceiving Messiah," loosely the Antichrist; often referred to simply as "Dajjāl") at the Gate of Lud, Muslims believe he will marry, die, and be buried in the Masjid al Nabawi. During his life, he will have revealed that Islam is the last word of God.

Allah's Proof in the Qur'an (Holy Book):

The second question to be resolved is whether the Holy Quran contains any reference to the Promised Messiah or not. Conclusive arguments show that such reference is indeed to be found in the Quran. There is no doubt that a person who considers the prophecies of the Holy Quran regarding the latter days of the followers of Islam, if he has a perceptive and living heart in his breast, will have no option but to accept that the Holy Quran certainly and definitely contains the news of a reformer who in other words could only be called the Promised Messiah and nothing else. To understand this prophecy, the following verses should be examined together. For instance:

(21:91-93, 96-97).
The meaning is as follows. God guided the woman (Mary) who guarded her chastity. So He breathed into her His spirit, and made her and her son a sign for the world. And God said: This your community is a single community and I am your Lord, so serve Me. But they became divided into sects, shattered the unity, and raised mutual differences. Eventually they will all return to God. And they will remain in this condition till Gog and Magog {Note 1} are let loose and they sally forth from every vantage point. So when you see that Gog and Magog are dominant in the earth, know that the promise of the spread of the True Faith has drawn nigh, and that promise is: He it is Who sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, so that He may make it prevail over all other religions (The Quran 9:33 etc). It is then said that at the time of the fulfilment of this promise the eyes of the disbelievers will be fixedly open, and they will say: Woe to us, surely we were heedless of this, nay, we were unjust. That is, the Truth will be manifested most powerfully, and the disbelievers will realise that they were in error.

The sum and substance of these verses is that, in the latter days, many religions will spread in the world, and there will be many sects. Then two nations will emerge, whose religion will be Christianity, and they will attain supremacy in every field. So when you see that the Christian faith and Christian governments have spread throughout the world, know that the time of the promise is near===

How the jews planned to kill Jesus (messiah) - Islam

One day the Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) was going through the street which was narrow and winding. He came across a man who was blind and dumb. The Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) decided to show mercy to him because he was kind-hearted. He put his hand on the shoulder of the man. The blind man opened his eyes and Allah restored his eye sight. Moreover he was endowed with the power of talking. He expressed a deep sense of gratitude for the kindness shown by the Prophet Isa (peace be upon him). This miracle impressed the spectators and they began to follow the teachings of Allah.

A man, Lazarus passed away and his sisters, Mary and Martha fell into melancholy and extinction. They were making preparations to perform burial ceremonies. The mourners flocked at the residence of the deceased. Suddenly the Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) appeared on the scene. He knelt down and started to pray to Almighty Allah. After a short time Lazarus was revived by the grace of Allah. He got up and began to talk. Every one jumped out or joy. They began to acknowledge the supreme power of their Lord. The Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) came to remind the people of the teachings of the other Prophets. He advised the people to believe in Allah and pray to Him only. He asked them not to indulge in back-biting, oppression, sinfulness and impiety. He directed his followers to do noble deeds. He taught them to be loving and tolerant. He also had his own revelations. The Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) had twelve disciples who assisted him in preaching. They helped him in spreading the religion of Allah during the life of Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) and afterwards.

The preaching work by Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) lasted for three years. A considerable number of people began to follow him. They adopted good ways of life. The Romans and the Jews were much worried because of the prevailing influence of Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) and his disciples. They feared lest they should rise in revolt against them. They decided Isa, the Prophet to be crucified.

(How Allah (God) raised Jesus (isa) to heaven):

Allah loved his Prophet. He wanted to save him. On the other hand the Romans made a heavy big cross of wood to put their plan into practice. There was a large gathering and the soldiers were standing all around where Isa, the Prophet was supposed to be crucified. Even those people who were against the teachings of Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) were feeling queezy inside. They did not agree with the idea of crucifying him. Allah ordered some one who bore resemblance to Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) to take the place of the Prophet on the cross. In fact the man who was analogous to Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) was crucified and his own life was saved in this manner.

That they said (in boast) "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary the Apostle of Allah"; but they killed him not nor crucified him but so it was made to appear to them and those who differ therein are full of doubts with no (certain) knowledge but only conjecture to follow for of a surety they killed him not. Nay Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power Wise. ( 4:157, 158 )

Most of the teachings of Prophet Isa (peace be upon him) are still in the Gospel but some of the things written in the Bible are not in original form. They were changed and some additions as well as subtractions have been made in his teachings.

O people of the Book! commit no excesses in your religion: nor say of Allah aught but truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an Apostle of Allah and His Word which He bestowed on Mary and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His Apostles. Say not "Trinity": desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is One Allah: glory be to him: (for Exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs. Christ disdaineth not to serve and worship Allah nor do the angels those nearest (to Allah): those who disdain His worship and are arrogant He will gather them all together unto himself to (answer).
( 4:171, 172 )

He said: "I am indeed a servant of Allah: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet; "And He hath made me Blessed wheresoever I be and hath enjoined on me Prayer and Charity as long as I live; "(He) hath made me kind to my mother and not overbearing or miserable; "So Peace is on me the day I was born the day that I die and the Day that I shall be raised up to life (again)"! Such (was) Jesus the son of Mary: (it is) a statement of truth about which they (vainly) dispute. ( 19:30-34 )

ANSWER #3 of 8

The islamic view of Jesus is between two extremes :
Jews, who rejected him as a prophet and called him an imposter
Christians, who considered him as the son of God and worship him as such.
Islam considers Jesus as one of the greatest and most forbearing prophets (they are five : Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammed) peace be upon them all. Jesus peace be upon him is the Messiah as well. The message of God to humanity is to worship God and God alone. The Quran highlights the most important aspects of Jesus peace be upon him : his birth, his mission, his miracles, his ascension to heaven. Muslims believe Mary was a chaste and virgin woman who gave birth to Jesus. Jesus' birth is a miracle, he had no father. However, that doesn't mean that Jesus is divine, nor he is worthy of worship. Adam's existence was more miraculous : he had no parent (father and mother). If Jesus is divine, Adam would have more right over this divinity. Muslims believe that both Jesus and Adam are God's prophets. Both were servants to Him and living according to His commandements. God sent all prophets with miracles to prove the veracity of their message, these miracles were manifested in their hands by God's will.
Muslims also believe in the return of Jesus the Messiah to earth, to prove his mortality and refute the false beliefs people held about him. He will also fight the false Christ, who will call people to the belief that he is God. Jesus peace be upon him will defeat the anti-christ and all people will accept the true religion of God (Islam).
Jesus did not invite people to worship himself, rather he called them to worship God, whom he himself worshipped.
An important question in Islam is : Where is God?
The right answer : God rose over His throne, He is above His creation.

ANSWER #4 of 8

In my way of thinking, the suffering messiah, has already come, in the form of Jesus Christ.

The next thing on the agenda, is for the Anti-Christ to be revealed, and the whole earth is being prepared for his arrival, and his acceptance.

Jesus was rejected.. by many, including the ones that he was first sent to, the Jews.

When the Anti-Christ is revealed, and the time of tribulation is gone thru, the last battle on planet earth will be fought,and that is the battle of Armegeddon.

Jesus will defeat the Anti-Christ, and we will see 1000 years of peace, with Jesus living within our midst.

At some point the New Jerusalem, will come down from Heaven, as the abode of the redeemed of the Lord.

at some point, Satan will be loosed again, on earth, to test the ones that are born during the millenial reign, otherwise, it would not be fair to those of us who have all had to face him, and overcome him.

The Islamic religion came from Hagar and her decendants, when they were seperated from Abraham.

If you notice the Christian bible, it says that they too, would be a great nation, and that they too, would be blessed of God the Father.

HOwever, the true promises of the Father, were meant to go to Issac, and his decendants, however, flesh, or Satan always get in the middle of what God is doing, and he has to alter his plans.
