Perhaps Jesus and Christians, not Jews, are wrong about what the concept of Messiah means. It would not be the first time that "Jesus" was wrong. (see Matthew 16.28) He was wrong (or the Gospel Evangelists were wrong) about his 2nd coming occurring in the lifetime of his apostles. The "some standing here not tasting death" and all that.bjs wrote:That was a common belief in Jesus day. Jesus said that it was a wrong belief. He stated that â€œMy kingdom if not of this world.â€�Note: The Messiah was supposed to sit on the throne of David and return political control to Israel. (Obviously, Jesus didnâ€™t)
The point the NAB footnote was making is that the disciples expected Jesus to be a political leader, which means that they did not yet fully understand or accept what it actually meant that Jesus was the Messiah.
Yes, Jews could be wrong as well regarding the expectation of King David's successor ushering in a Messianic age of universal peace, knowledge of God and the primacy of Israel among the Nations. But as far as I know, (unlike the Gospel Evangelists), they have not predicted when this would actually happen.
