Actually you are very very wrong... Yeshua went further than just calling Himself just a mere messiah.. He called Himself "The Son of Man" who, in Daniel "sits at the right hand of the Living God, and is given a sceptre and kingdom that lasts forever," and who is told to sit at Gods right hand until He has made His enemies His footstool.. Anyone hearing someone calling themselves The Son of Man would be astonished more about that than being called just a messiah... A priest is a messiah, so is a king, so is anyone who has been given a appointment of any kind..
Read about second temple jewish society and mindset before you spout ill educated nonesense

You crack me up! This is a forum where we share information and ideas not insult one another and force feed beliefs. The name Christ is the Greek equivalent of Messiah and in Hebrew 'Māšîaḥ'. So whos the ill educated one now?
The word originally came from Hebrew messiaḥ, “anointed”. In Judaism, the expected king of the Davidic line who would deliver Israel from foreign bondage and restore the glories of its golden age. The Greek New Testament’s translation of the term, Christos, became the accepted Christian designation and title of Jesus of Nazareth, indicative of the principal character and function of his ministry. More loosely, the term messiah denotes any redeemer figure; and the adjective messianic is used in a broad sense to refer to beliefs or theories about an eschatological improvement of the state of humanity or the world.
Yes Moshiach means annointed, but like i said it is also an appointment.. People like kings and priests were annointed to their appointments and were described also as moshiachs.. MoshiachEl (annointed God)is a different matter.. Cephas called Yeshua MoshiachEl befor His transfiguration on the mount.. However Yeshua gave Himself the Title of The Son of Man before that, and admitted to the Sanhedrin who He was before He was crucified.
The greek word Christos was a word used by pagans for their "annointed ones" and has nothing to do with the Hebrew Moshiach.. In fact the true translation of Moshiach from Hebrew is not Christ but Messiah.. All Helenized name changes served to take the Jewishness from the scriptures.
My education as a Jewish believer in Yeshua and of scripture, and my culture is not in doubt

While I have heard of some amount of Jinn worship (or at least veneration) in Pre-Islamic Arabia, I've never heard of a specific religion dedicated to them. Could you tell me where you got this information from? Or by "Jinn Religion", do you just mean the general beliefs of the people in Mecca and Arabia at that time?
