The Sanhedrin is looking for a scion of David.
Interesting. Jews have not had great sucess with Kings in the past save David and Solomon. But the Messiah will be an offspring of David. What are your thoughts?
My wife's family actually has a "shtar yichus" (family tree with all names) going back to King David (too bad it's through her grandmother!)
