What Does the “Messianic Hope” Mean?

Standard

The expression “Messianic Hope” is used by both Christians and Jews. Because Christians believe Jesus is the messiah, the anticipation of his return (Second Coming) is their “Messianic Hope.” However, for Jews it is different. Recorded in the Old Testament of the bible, is the Jewish belief that a king of the Davidic line (Royal House of David) would deliver Israel from oppression. A family that for centuries continues the name David in all its various forms may be historically preserving their descent from the House of David. Similar names include: Davidson, Dovid, Davids, Davi, Davis, Daves, Davin, Davins, Davala, Daviu, Davies, Daud, Daud Ibn, Davila, Davilla and Davision.

Christianity & Judaism: Who Was Joseph?

Standard

There are many Josephs but two are quite prominent in biblical history. The first is Joseph the son of Jacob. (The twelve tribes of Israel are all the descendants of Jacob, whose name later became Israel.) Joseph’s brothers were jealous of him and sold him as a slave. You’ll find the story of Joseph’s time in Egypt in the book of Genesis (37, 39-50).

The other well-known Joseph was the husband of Mary, Mother of Jesus. This Joseph was a descendant of King David remembered today throughout the world in the Star of David. Like Jesus, Joseph was a carpenter. The name Joseph means, “may he add.”
