Other denominations, such as Reform Judaism, believe in a Messianic Age when the world will be at peace, but do not agree that there will be a messiah as the leader of this era.
The Jewish messiah concept was the source of the development of later, similar messianic concepts in Christianity (originally a Jewish sect) and Islam.
In the Book of Revelation, the end of the present age culminates in man-made and natural catastrophes, through which divine judgment concludes with the arrival of the Messianic Kingdom expected by both Jews and Christians.

'Mashiach'), the saviour and redeemer who would bring salvation to the Jewish people and mankind.
"Christ" is the Greek translation of "Messiah", meaning "Anointed one".
He claimed to be the Promised Messiah and Mahdi, the metaphorical second coming of Jesus of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad.
