    Shabbatai Tzvi was my favourite, he was going great guns until he upped sticks and became a Muslim.Close but no cigar eh? No there won't be a messiah, nor was there ever inteded to be one. Messianism was a contrived at a late date to the OT. All the messiahs were kings 'anointed'. It meant little more than just that, but Judaism became infused with Zoroastrianism in the post exilic and with it came the obsession with life after death, good and evil, light and dark, a concept (life after death) absent or unimportant in early Judaism. This was fueled by the calamities in the there and then and 2 destroyed Temples, The Christians ran with the theme and today half of the US and much of the Mid East[including Osama] are delirious with the same virus. So all we can be assured is that there will be countless messiahs-all of them false.
