Jewish eschatology is concerned with the Jewish Messiah, afterlife, and the revival of the dead. Eschatology, generically, is the area of theology and philosophy concerned with the final events in the history of the world, the ultimate destiny of humanity, and related concepts.

The Messiah

The Hebrew word Mashiach (or Moshiach) refers to the Jewish idea of the Messiah. Like the English word Messiah, Mashiach means anointed.[1]

The Jewish messiah refers to a human leader, physically descended from the Davidic line, who will rule and unite the people of Israel[2] and will usher in the Messianic Age[3] of global and universal peace. In sharp fundamental contrast to Christian belief, the Jewish messiah is not considered to be divine nor is he considered to be Jesus. The Jewish tradition has Jesus of Nazareth on the List of messiah claimants.
