Evidence of Messiah
Reader: How would you recognize HaMashiach when he comes?
Mesora: Maimonides teaches (Laws of Kings; 11:1): "And if there arises a king from the house of David, knowledgeable in Torah, involved in commandments as David his father - in accord with the Written and Oral Torah - and he coerces all Jews to follow the Torah and its minutiae, and he fights the wars of God, he has the status that he is the Messiah. If he does so, and is successful, and he builds the temple in its place and gathers in the exiled Jews, he is definitely the Messiah."
