Re: Lots of dead messiahs?
There were three real messianic attempts that reached the stage of full war with Rome, the first leading to the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. The second began in Libya and Egypt but spread to Judea. The third major messianic war was the Simon bar Kokhba revolt sixty years after the first war.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!
