- Okay, I have several important questions I am working with today. They
#1 Did the first-century Jews anticipate the coming of a Messiah?
#2 If so, what sort of Messiah did they anticipate?
#3 What sources of material can one draw from to determine this?
#4 Must the source of material for messianism actually use the word
"messiah" or its cognates?
