Reply To: Did any of the similarities or differences between Christian and Jewish theology surprise you? If so, which/why?

Deneisha, I found the idea of Jews believing the Messiah is an age rather than a person surprising too. For me, with my Christian perspective, it makes me wonder how one would recognize that the age is here. Would it be similar to Christian ideas of judgement and revelation? Would only Jews know that we had arrived at this new age? What would a Messianic age mean for us as Christians? Thanks for your thoughts!
