Messiah DNA


Unless I’m mistaken, the premise is that there’s a potential Messiah born in every generation of Jewish genealogy.

How could the “Holy” sinless similitude of Hashem possess brutish, common, vile, perverse, tainted DNA ?

Iyov 15:14: “What [is] man, that he should be clean? and he that is born of a “woman”, that he should be ” righteous” ? ” Iyov 15:15: “Behold, He puts no “trust” in His saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in His sight.” Iyov 15:16: “How much more “abominable” and “filthy” is man [ish] which drinks “iniquity” like water?” Iyov 5:7: “Yet man [adam] is ” born” unto trouble as the sparks fly upward.” Isaiah 64:6: “But we are “all” as “unclean” and “all” righteousness as “filthy” rags;”

This would pertain to the potential Jewish parents of Messiah wouldn’t it? Torah is emeth truth to the utter most high. I’m befuddled to say the least. Please clarify.



  1. Judaism does not believe in infallibility and it does not believe in sinlessness. That means that the Mashiach will be a human being born to human parents. In fact, our Sages explain that there are many skeletons in the Mashiach’s closet – it is called a “Kupah Shel Shratzim” in the Talmud. There is Lot and his daughters, Yehuda and Tamar; there is Rus and Boaz, there is Dovid haMelech and Bas Sheva. That is quite a line-up of not such great unions! Chazal teach that the Mashiach will be able to relate to every single Jew regardless of their level of righteousness. If the Mashiach would have come from the purest sources, it would have meant that he would not have been able to understand and relate to those who struggled.
