***But I can't accept Jesus as the Messiah without betraying my own faith and ignoring the scriptural conditions for the arrival of the messiah. ;) ***

I find these two statements very interesting.

If you don't mind my asking, how would accepting Jesus as Messiah betray your faith?

Additionally, what do you see as the scriptural conditions for the arrival of the messiah?

I'm at work now, and this requires a thoughtful response. So, if it's acceptable, I'd like to postpone an answer for a few hours. However, if you want a really quick answer, say so and I'll do the best I can.

I'm not really qualified to answer for others, PetroniusMaximus, but the following should help to answer that question. Compare them with your own Bible, if you like.

From Judaica Press Complete Tanach [Apologies to Jewish friends who would rather see another version cited, but the only other one that I know of is down for the coming day. And BTW, it's still early afternoon where I am. And everyone, have a good weekend!]

The messiah of Christianity (aka Jesus) is claimed by Christianity to be the same as YHVH. The trinitarian tradition is something that most Christians are not going to question or challenge. Meanwhile, Jews hold on to the Shema as well they should.
