Jewish eschatology
Concerned with the Jewish Messiah, afterlife, and the revival of the dead.

The Hebrew word Mashiach (or Moshiach) means anointed one, "messiah", and refers to a human being who will usher in a messianic era of peace and prosperity for both the living and the dead.

Judaism has taught that a moshiach ("messiah") will bring about a revival of both the ancient united Kingdom of Israel and its ancient form of sacrificial worship in the Temple in Jerusalem.
