"Mashiach" is the Hebrew word for "Messiah."

Although this statement is true and often heard, it's too simplistic to help us understand the Being called Mashiach. Mashiach created the Universe, existing before all earthly languages. The Hebrew definition of "Mashiach" is that which is "anointed."

At times, the term "Mashiach" was used in conjunction with priests, but the Most Anointed is Mashiach, the Being.
