    1. Very interesting collection of texts dealing with Messianic themes in Judaism. Anyone wanting to understand Jewish beliefs about the Messiah should read this book.

    2. The Messiah Texts is an amazing book dealing about the Messianic Idea and its themes focusing on Judaisms since Antiquity until the modern era. Raphael Patai opens each chapter with a small intro and review of the theme. After that he collects the most important texts related to it. We can find themes like: the names of the Messiah, the question of his preexistence, early messiahs, the suffering messiah, Messiah and Kabbalah, Gog and Magog, the Pangs of Times, the ingathering of the exile, the r [...]

    3. This book, written by an atheist hungarian jew, is probably the best collection of rabbinical writings from Talmuds, midrashim, haggadot, apocryphal books and hasidic stories regarding the Messiah. It doesn't have rabbinical bias towards Christianity typical of the "anti-missionaries". At least 3000 years of "Messianology" condensed in nearly 350 pages. Recommended!5/5.
