Judaism
Term used in Judaism for the expected returning leader and liberator of the religion. The character named Messiah should be of the line of King David, be a king and characterized by the priestly tradition starting with Moses. Messiah's mission was to free Israel from foreign bondage and bring the country back to former glory. In Isaiah 53 (see excerpt below) Messiah is also described as a suffering servant.
The term comes from Hebrew "mashiah", which is derived from the term "hameshiach", which was the title given to the king of Judah, indicating the sacred office of the king. "Hameshiach" can be translated with "the L-rd's anointed".
The origin of the ideology of the Messiah has its roots, both historically and symbolically, with the rule of King David in the early 10th century BCE. King David formalized some central religious structures and he established Jerusalem as the cult centre of the Hebrew religion. But most important, he made Israel and Judah for some decades into the strongest state of the region, defeating most of the neigbouring peoples.
The ideology of Messiah grew strong in the times following the Babylonian Exile (6th century BCE), when the Jews realized that Israel was lost, and the opponents appeared to be invincible. This idea of Messiah was one of human character, but with extraordinary powers.
Several hundred years later, with the Roman occupation of Israel, many sects within Judaism developed a more mystical notion of Messiah. A character called "Son of Man" was to descend from heaven and save Israel. And in the same epoch there were numerous people claiming to be Messiah.
After the Roman destruction of the Second Temple of Jerusalem in 70 CE, the hardship that the Jews experienced (exile and persecution) intensified the ideology of Messiah, and varying versions allowed him to be a human being of special qualities. And just like before, there were many men, often in regions far away from the original Israel, who claimed to be Messiah.
In many modern Jewish orientations, there are ideas that there can be a messianic future (a situation where Israel is restored, and Jews live in peace and safety) without a personal Messiah.

Isaiah Chapter 53

 יְשַׁעְיָהוּ

א  מִי הֶאֱמִין, לִשְׁמֻעָתֵנוּ; וּזְרוֹעַ יְהוָה, עַל-מִי נִגְלָתָה. 1 'Who would have believed our report? And to whom hath the arm of the HaShem been revealed?
ב  וַיַּעַל כַּיּוֹנֵק לְפָנָיו, וְכַשֹּׁרֶשׁ מֵאֶרֶץ צִיָּה--לֹא-תֹאַר לוֹ, וְלֹא הָדָר; וְנִרְאֵהוּ וְלֹא-מַרְאֶה, וְנֶחְמְדֵהוּ. 2 For he shot up right forth as a sapling, and as a root out of a dry ground; he had no form nor comeliness, that we should look upon him, nor beauty that we should delight in him.
ג  נִבְזֶה וַחֲדַל אִישִׁים, אִישׁ מַכְאֹבוֹת וִידוּעַ חֹלִי; וּכְמַסְתֵּר פָּנִים מִמֶּנּוּ, נִבְזֶה וְלֹא חֲשַׁבְנֻהוּ. 3 He was despised, and forsaken of men, a man of pains, and acquainted with disease, and as one from whom men hide their face: he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
ד  אָכֵן חֳלָיֵנוּ הוּא נָשָׂא, וּמַכְאֹבֵינוּ סְבָלָם; וַאֲנַחְנוּ חֲשַׁבְנֻהוּ, נָגוּעַ מֻכֵּה אֱלֹהִים וּמְעֻנֶּה. 4 Surely our diseases he did bear, and our pains he carried; whereas we did esteem him stricken, smitten of YHWH Eloheinu, and afflicted.
ה  וְהוּא מְחֹלָל מִפְּשָׁעֵנוּ, מְדֻכָּא מֵעֲו‍ֹנֹתֵינוּ; מוּסַר שְׁלוֹמֵנוּ עָלָיו, וּבַחֲבֻרָתוֹ נִרְפָּא-לָנוּ. 5 But he was wounded because of our transgressions, he was crushed because of our iniquities: the chastisement of our welfare was upon him, and with his stripes we were healed.
ו  כֻּלָּנוּ כַּצֹּאן תָּעִינוּ, אִישׁ לְדַרְכּוֹ פָּנִינוּ; וַיהוָה הִפְגִּיעַ בּוֹ, אֵת עֲו‍ֹן כֻּלָּנוּ. 6 All we like sheep did go astray, we turned every one to his own way; and HaShem hath made to light on him the iniquity of us all.
ז  נִגַּשׂ וְהוּא נַעֲנֶה, וְלֹא יִפְתַּח-פִּיו, כַּשֶּׂה לַטֶּבַח יוּבָל, וּכְרָחֵל לִפְנֵי גֹזְזֶיהָ נֶאֱלָמָה; וְלֹא יִפְתַּח, פִּיו. 7 He was oppressed, though he humbled himself and opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before her shearers is dumb; yea, he opened not his mouth.
ח  מֵעֹצֶר וּמִמִּשְׁפָּט לֻקָּח, וְאֶת-דּוֹרוֹ מִי יְשׂוֹחֵחַ: כִּי נִגְזַר מֵאֶרֶץ חַיִּים, מִפֶּשַׁע עַמִּי נֶגַע לָמוֹ. 8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away, and with his generation who did reason? for he was cut off out of the land of the living, for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke was due.
ט  וַיִּתֵּן אֶת-רְשָׁעִים קִבְרוֹ, וְאֶת-עָשִׁיר בְּמֹתָיו; עַל לֹא-חָמָס עָשָׂה, וְלֹא מִרְמָה בְּפִיו. 9 And they made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich his tomb; although he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.'
י  וַיהוָה חָפֵץ דַּכְּאוֹ, הֶחֱלִי--אִם-תָּשִׂים אָשָׁם נַפְשׁוֹ, יִרְאֶה זֶרַע יַאֲרִיךְ יָמִים; וְחֵפֶץ יְהוָה, בְּיָדוֹ יִצְלָח. 10 Yet it pleased HaShem to crush him by disease; to see if his soul would offer itself in restitution, that he might see his seed, prolong his days, and that the purpose of HaShem might prosper by his hand:
יא  מֵעֲמַל נַפְשׁוֹ, יִרְאֶה יִשְׂבָּע--בְּדַעְתּוֹ יַצְדִּיק צַדִּיק עַבְדִּי, לָרַבִּים; וַעֲו‍ֹנֹתָם, הוּא יִסְבֹּל. 11 Of the travail of his soul he shall see to the full, even My servant, who by his knowledge did justify the Righteous One to the many, and their iniquities he did bear.
יב  לָכֵן אֲחַלֶּק-לוֹ בָרַבִּים, וְאֶת-עֲצוּמִים יְחַלֵּק שָׁלָל, תַּחַת אֲשֶׁר הֶעֱרָה לַמָּוֶת נַפְשׁוֹ, וְאֶת-פֹּשְׁעִים נִמְנָה; וְהוּא חֵטְא-רַבִּים נָשָׂא, וְלַפֹּשְׁעִים יַפְגִּיעַ. {פ}

12 Therefore will I divide him a portion among the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the mighty; because he bared his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. {P}

 



Christianity
The ideology around the Messiah has a central position in Christian theology, even if there are dramatic differences from present Jewish ideas of Messiah: In Christianity, Messiah has already returned and his new kingdom has started. Together with this, a new interpretation of the religion has started, as it is described in the New Testament.
The Messiah of Christianity is Y'shua. The term "messiah" has been translated into Greek with "christos", and Y'shua is therefore called Jesus Christ in Christianity, which would be similar to Y'shua the Messiah.

Christianity has been corrupted by Zionists, by Muslems and by other interested parties, this site will try to show you what the truth is and steer you in the correct direction, there are many false prophets and we will attempt to alert you about these, but consider there are over 38,000 different christian sects, each claiming to have the the truth. Logic demands that there is one truth - torah, and a new covenant, contained in the Aramaic New Testament.

There are several references to the messiahship of Y'shua in the Gospels. His qualities are revealed already at his conception (Matthew 1), at his birth (Luke 2) and during his baptism (Mark 1). Demons (Luke 4) and Peter as well have Y'shua confirmed this (Matthew 16). And according to the Gospels, Y'shua provoked the Jews to have him crucified simply by admitting to be Messiah (Mark 14).

    THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SAINT MATTHEW, Chapter 1
    20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the L-rd appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.
    21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Y'shua: for he shall save his people from their sins.
    22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the L-rd by the prophet, saying,
   
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, G-d with us.

    Chapter 16
    16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living G-d.
    17 And Y'shua answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

    THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SAINT LUKE, Chapter 2
    9 And, lo, the angel of the L-rd came upon them, and the glory of the L-rd shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
    10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
    11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the L-rd.
    12 And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
    13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising G-d, and saying,
     14 Glory to G-d in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

    Chapter 4
    41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of G-d. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

    THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SAINT MARK, Chapter 1
    11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

    Chapter 14
    61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? 62 And Y'shua said, I am: and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
    63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What need we any further witnesses?
64 you have heard the blasphemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.

Islam
The ideology of the Mahdi in Islam has many similarities with the Jewish/Christian Messiah. The ideology is central in Shi'i Islam but has a certain presence in Sunni Islam as well.
While Christian and Jewish thinkers would say that this ideology is strongly influenced by their two religions, Muslim thinkers would say that Mahdi represent the true form of saviour figure, and that Messiah in Judaism and Christ in Christianity represent deviations from the original doctrines.
Mahdi is a character that belongs to the last period of mankind, and his purpose is to restore the faith, and bring Islam back to its pure origins and provide for the belivers a society where they can perform their religious duties in a correct manner.
The Mahdi is not mentioned in the Koran, but belongs to theological developments starting from the 9th/10th century BCE.
