I think many contemporary Christians would be surprised at the number of Jewish messianic claimants, some contemporaries of the one they call Jesus, others as recent as last night in your local psych ward.

The interesting part is the cult of personality around some of the early ones, and their surprising success in recruiting.

Makes one wonder if they picked the right one, or how the twists and turns of history and politics might have influenced the eventual "winner".
