The concepts of mashiach , messianism , and of a Messianic Age originated in Judaism ,   and in the Hebrew Bible ; a mashiach messiah is a king or High Priest traditionally anointed with holy anointing oil. Messiahs were not exclusively Jewish: the Book of Isaiah refers to Cyrus the Great , king of the Achaemenid Empire , as a messiah  for his decree to rebuild the Jerusalem Temple. He is thought to accomplish predetermined things in only one future arrival, including the unification of the tribes of Israel ,  the gathering of all Jews to Eretz Israel , the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem , the ushering in of a Messianic Age  of global universal peace, and the annunciation of the world to come. However, unlike the concept of the Messiah in Judaism, Jesus is considered by Christians additionally to be the Son of God. Christ became the accepted Christian designation and title of Jesus of Nazareth ,  because Christians believe that the messianic prophecies in the Old Testament were fulfilled in his mission , death , and resurrection. These specifically include the prophecies of him being descended from the Davidic line, and being declared King of the Jews which happened on the day of his crucifixion.

While Netflix continues to keep the ball rolling on a number of its shows — Sex Education season three has been greenlit, Stranger Things season four was in production before the global situation ground it to a halt, and The Crown is getting a fourth and final chapter, granting it permission to end on its own terms — others bite the dust early, with multiple threads left hanging — a hammer blow for fans who have followed those stories from the very beginning. From The OA to Santa Clarita Diet , there have been a number of Netflix casualties over the years, and we expect plenty more in future. One of the latest series banished to the TV graveyard was Messiah, a thriller about a CIA officer's investigation into a mysterious man who is believed to be the Second Coming of Christ by his followers. The show's first season hit the streaming platform on New Year's Day, but it was announced at the end of March that season two would not be going ahead. Actor Wil Traval, who plays Will Mathers in the drama, shared the news on his Instagram page: "It's a very sad day today. I have just received news from Netflix that there will be no season 2 of messiah. I wanted to say to all the fans thank you for your support and love. I wish things were different.
