Anglicization of the Hebrew, "moshiach" (annointed). A man who will be chosen
by G-d to put an end to all evil in the world, rebuild the
Temple, bring the exiles back to
Israel and usher in the world to come. It is better
to use the Hebrew term "moshiach" when speaking of the Jewish messiah, because
the Jewish concept is very different from the Christian one.
