The concept of a Messiah was perhaps first developed in Judaism, and many Christians point to prophecies in the Hebrew Bible, including in Isaiah and the Psalms as foretelling the coming of Jesus. But what is the role of the Messiah for modern Jews who don’t think of Jesus as the Son of God?

Continuing a month-long interfaith series on “The Role of the Messiah in World Religions,” Rabbi Elizabeth Bahar, of Temple B’nai Sholom in Huntsville, Ala., will lecture in Fayetteville on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013, at First Presbyterian Church on the perceptions of the Messiah in modern Judaism.

The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the church’s large fellowship hall at the back of the historic sanctuary, which is at the corner of East College Street and Mulberry Avenue just east of the Fayetteville Square.
