Messianic Ages and Judaism





jmlworld
Is it true that Judaism sets the initial date of the messianic era? I read somewhere that according to the Judaism, the messianic age will start at 6000 of the Jewish calendar and will end at 7000.

I did a quick Wikipedia check and here is what I found:

Quote:
According to classical Jewish sources, the Hebrew year 6000 (Gregorian year 2240) marks the latest time for the initiation of the Messianic Age. The Talmud, the Midrash, and the Kabbalistic work, the Zohar, state that the 'deadline' by which the Messiah must appear is 6,000 years from creation.

~Year 6000.



The current Hebrew Calendar is 5771 and 6000 - 5771 = 229 years later.

Personally, I do believe the existence of Torah and the messianic ages, but Judaism is not my religion and I would like someone with Judaism knowledge to clarify this.
