comment When Tana“ch uses the phrase ”until today" what does it mean?
II Kings 17:22-23: וַיֵּלְכוּ בְּנֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּכָל-חַטֹּאות יָרָבְעָם אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה לֹא-סָרוּ מִמֶּנָּה. עַד אֲשֶׁר-הֵסִיר יְהוָה אֶת-יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵעַל פָּנָיו כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבֶּר בְּיַד כָּל-עֲבָדָיו הַנְּבִיאִים וַיִּגֶל יִשְׂרָאֵל מֵעַל אַדְמָתוֹ אַשּׁוּרָה עַד הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה

comment Belief that a dead man will be the Messiah - Kfira?
@Yishai, Including the Abarbanel who believed that Moshiach would come from the dead?. This is untrue; Abarbanel believed no such thing necessarily. Please see Ch. 5 of Gil Student's book linked to above for clarification.
