Messiah - His Aims & Objectives  

According to the Abrahamic religions, a Messiah will come to the Earth in the end-times.

The Messiah will seek to achieve various objectives, including establish truth and justice, liberate people, and lead the world. The table below lists the Messiah's aims and objectives based on scripture text.

1 | Stop Suffering
Judaism
Before the Messiah comes, there will be war and suffering. He will bring the world back to God. Jesus was not the Jewish Messiah, as he did not eradicate war and suffering in the world.

2 | Military Leader
Judaism
To stop war and suffering, the Messiah will be a great military leader, who will win wars and battles for Israel. He will provide military leadership and defeat those who oppose him.

For Jews, Jesus provided no military leadership and so was not their Messiah.
Christianity
Christian doctrine teaches that Jesus will wages war against the Anti-Christ in the end times.

Christianity teaches Jesus was the 'Prince of peace', a non-violent pacifist who taught to 'turn the other cheek'. Is Jesus the Messiah a great military leader who will defeat his enemies in physical and bloody warfare?
Islam
Jesus will return and fight the Anti-Christ (the 'Dajjal') in the end times.
3 | Peace & Security
Judaism
All nations will live peacefully together. There will be world peace, no oppression, suffering or disease. There will be no murder, robbery, competition or jealousy. There will be no sin.

For Jews, Jesus was not the Jewish Messiah as he did not establish peace in the world.
Christianity
Jesus is the Messiah for Christians as he will establish peace in the world when he returns
Islam
Jesus will clear all the confusion prevailing in the world regarding his life and mission. In particular, Jesus will correct the false teachings of Christianity. He will break the cross; Kill the swine/pig; and Abolish the jizyah (tax). There will be peace and security after.
4 | Religious Courts
Judaism
He will establish the 'Sanhedrin', the religious supreme court and legislature of the Jewish people, based on Jewish Law. This is a necessary for the re-building of the Third Temple.

He will restore the religious court system of Israel, establish Jewish law as the law of the land and the law of the Jubilee will be reinstated.
Christianity
Christians accept that Jesus was a Jew. It is unclear, if Christians will convert to Judaism and accept Jewish Law.

How will a Jewish Jesus address the major theological differences between Jews and Christians?
Islam
The Messiah will be a just judge. As a Muslim, Jesus the Messiah will preach a message of Monotheism which may favour orthodox Judaism.

How will the Messiah reconcile Islamic Law over his earlier observed Jewish traditions?
5 | Universal Knowledge
Judaism
The whole world will recognize the Jewish God as the only true God; the Jewish religion, Judaism as the only true religion and the Holy Land of Israel.

Jesus was not the Jewish Messiah as he did not spread knowledge of Judaism or Israel.
Christianity
Will Christians accept Judaism and the Jewish God over Jesus who they consider their God?

Will a Jewish Messiah accept the Christians?
If Judaism becomes the only true religion, is Christianity a false religion?
Islam
The Messiah will establish Islam (monotheism) as the true religion. He, Jesus will correct the false beliefs that are spread about him and Christianity, Trinity, crucifixion, bible etc.
6 | Religious Leader
Judaism
To establish the Jewish religion, its laws and courts, the Messiah will himself be a religious and spiritual leader.

He will be well-versed in Jewish law, and observant of its commandments. He will be a great judge, who makes righteous decisions.
Christianity
How will the Christian Trinity, and the Godhead of Jesus be effected if Judaism is established as truth?
Islam
Muslims believe that Jesus will correct the Christian doctrine that he is God, a diety or Son of God.

Christianity
Various Christian groups today are supportive of the State of Israel and acknowledge Jewish Messanic principles.

Will Jesus establish Mecca as the center of worship?
9 | Third Jewish Temple
Judaism
The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism. The Messiah will oversee the re-building of Jerusalem, and the Third Temple in Temple Mount, Jerusalem, Israel.

Jesus was not the Jewish Messiah as he did not build the Third Temple.
Christianity
Jesus is the Messiah for Christians as he will build the Third Temple when he returns. It is unclear if Christians will worship at the Temple.
Islam
The Al-Aqsa Mosque is the third holiest site for Muslims and is located at the Temple Mount. The Third temple will either be built alongside the Al-Aqsa Mosque or over it.

Will the Al-Aqsa Mosque be destroyed by the Jewish Messiah?
10 | Return Jews to Israel
Judaism
The Jewish Messiah will physically gather the Jews in the Land of Israel and rule over them in the end days.

12 | Religious Sacrifice
Judaism
The Messiah will restore the sacrificial system; practices of the Sabbatical Year ('Shmitah') and the Jubilee Year ('Yovel').

Sacrifices will continue to be brought in the Temple, but these will be limited to thanksgiving offerings, because there will be no further need for expiatory offerings.
Christianity
Christians believe Jesus was the ultimate blood sacrifice.

If the Jewish Jesus brings back blood sacrifice, how will that effect Christian doctrine which is founded on Jesus' crucifixion as the ultimate, final sacrifice?
Islam
Muslims already practise the animal (blood) sacrifice during religious celebrations, including the birth of a baby, annual Eid al-Adha festival etc.
13 | Descendant of King David
Judaism
The Messiah is often referred to as "Messiah ben David" (Messiah, son of David). He is physically descended on his fathers side from King David and King Solomon; son of Jesse.

Jesus was not the Jewish Messiah, as the Messiah will be born of human parents and possess normal physical attributes like other people. He will not be a demi-god, nor will he possess supernatural qualities.
Christianity
Christians believe that Jesus is from the Davidic line of King Solomon through his paternal father, Joseph and some say, his mother, Mary
