The initial impetus for this paper was derived from a conviction on the part of the writer that Jesus Christ is in every respect the Christian Messiah. Realizing that the idea of a Messiah is not original in Christian thought, I set out to examine some aspect of non-Christian Messianism. The most logical place to being was with Christianity's predecessor, Judaism. However, since my own orientation is Christian, it became the aim of the investigation to study aspects of Jewish Messianism which were somewhat related in time to the beginnings of the Christian era.
