Two Messiahs

Messiah ben Joseph and Messiah ben David

The Bible says that there would be two Messiahs.

The definition of the word “Messiah” is: An Anointed Male Lineal Descendant of King David.

In Judaism, these two Messiahs are titled “Messiah ben David” and “Messiah ben Joseph.” Ask any Rabbi.

The first one, “Messiah ben Joseph,” was Jesus, as his father was Joseph, of the line of David. Jesus was one of the 9 Divine Manifestations of God.

The second one, “Messiah ben David,” was Baha’u’llah, as He is the descendant of King David, who sat on the throne of David (unlike Jesus, whose “Throne was not of this world”) and was also one of the 9 Divine Manifestations of God.

Of the nine Manifestations of God, which also include Adam, Moses, Krishna, Zoroaster, Buddha, Mohamed and the Bab, only two were “Messiahs,” Jesus Christ, son of Joseph, also known as the “Sufferring Messiah” as depicted in Isaiah 53; and Bahah’u’llah, the great Davidic King and return of Christ, also known as the “Reigning Messiah” as depicted in Isaiah 9:6-7.

In Zechariah’s vision of the Menorah, he sees “two anointed ones.” These are the two olive branches depicted on the seal of Israel. These two anointed olive branches are Jesus and Baha’u’llah, the two Messiahs.

    Are they not the same person as one person fulfills each set of prophecies for the “2″ messiahs?

    Same Spirit (the Holy Spirit), different persons.
