Israel is looking for two Messiahs: Mashiach ben Joseph and Mashiach ben David. After much suffering, Messiah ben Joseph eventually dies as a sacrifice of atonement and then ultimately rises from the dead. He is called the suffering Messiah. Mashiach ben David will ultimately appear and rule and reign from Jerusalem, a King David.
There was one Messiah. Jesus came first as the suffering servant, the Mashiach ben Joseph and will return as Mashiach ben David. One renounced rabbi may have sided with there being one Messiah.
“I have seen the Messiah! And I know who He is— I know His name. I know where He is. I know when He is coming. Furthermore, you will know these things as well— one year after my death. —Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri
The above is not an exact quote from the venerated late Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri; however, it paraphrases a collection of documented declarations he made in the final years and even the final days of his life.”
[The Rabbi Who Found Messiah: The Story of Yitzhak Kaduri and His Prophecies of the Endtime by Carl Gallups]
Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri died several years ago and left a note to be read one year after his death. The note is in code of sorts, but it has been argued that the rabbi said that the name of Messiah is Yehoshua. Yehoshua and Yeshua are, basically the same name, derived from the same Hebrew root of the word salvation translate directly to English as Joshua. Both the rabbi's son and grandson repudiated the possibility that the old Rabbi was referring to Jesus as the Messiah.
And so, the argument goes on, nevertheless Jesus cleared it up in Luke 4:18-19 by quoting in part from Isaiah 61:1-2, “1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn” Jesus stopped at the comma before “and the day of vengeance of our God.” That will be accomplished at the second coming of Jesus as the Mashiach ben David.
Psalm 40:6-7, “6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me.” Jesus was quoted by Paul as confirmation, Hebrews 10:6-7, “6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.”
