Is Messiah ben Josef, the war messiah, the messiah from the 10 lost tribes, expected to be a prophet? If not, how is he supposed to wage war in preparation for the messianic kingdom?

    Also, how can someone be prophesied, like Messiah ben Josef, and then not be a prophet when they fulfil prophecy? – Kieran Donegan Jan 24 '18 at 20:03
