    Emmaneul? Any other names?

    Where is the scripture for this in the old testament?


    Anyone here a Jew? Can I ask you a few questions?

    To the best of my understanding, there are many messiah claims within Judaism. There is Cyrus the King of Persia, who release the captivity of Jews held in Babylonian exile and allowed the second Temple to be built. There was Simon of Peraea, who is referred by the Essene sect. of Judaism. It is believe this sect were the writers of The Dead Sea Scrolls and Jeselsohn Stone. There was also the Messiah be David and Messiah ben Joseph as written in the Talmud.

    Where is it in the bible that God says he is "I am."

    And where does it say that he is "The Great I am?"

    "I am" statements are all in the New rather than the Old Testament, apart from a single reference in Exodus - and even that depends on the translation you use. AFAIK

    He/she will be the Saviour formerly known as the Messiah or the Jew known as an unpronounceable symbol. What will the symbol resemble, I wonder?

    Well Most likely NOT a crucifix. I know if I came back the last thing I would want to see is the moment of my greatest physical and spiritual agony.
