It may seem like a mistake, but it's not. Pope Francis was listed among the 50 most influential Jews in the United States.
The list was published by Jewish Daily Forward, which is an American publication. From the 50 candidates, two don't have to be Jewish. They can be selected for showing respect and an understanding of Jewish culture.
The Antichrist or false messiah (false prophet) has great power to deceive? He is a liar.
Revelation 13:1 pictures the Antichrist as a beast rising out of the sea. The sea refers to the Gentile nations (Revelation 17:15), indicating that the Antichrist will be a Gentile. “Anti” can mean “instead of ” or “against” or “opposed to.” So “Antichrist” can mean “instead of Christ,” “against Christ,” or “opposed to Christ.” The Antichrist is the “man of lawlessness,” the “son of destruction,” who will lead the world into rebellion against God (2 Thessalonians 2:3-10; Revelation 11:7) and deceive multitudes (Revelation 19:20).

He can't be a Jewish guy now only because you protestants would go crazy if they ever let someone from Saint Peter's ethnic background back in the Job. They'll never select another Jewish Pope in today's day and age.... Because your Denomination of Christians will go crazy over it! Lol!
The Pope can't be a Jew anymore because you guys won't let that happen... Lol!
We protestants have no say in who the Catholic Cardinals pick to be Pope or the Bishop of Rome. I don't even think the average Catholic has any say.
colliric wrote:They believe the Great Prophet Isa(Jesus in their Understanding of him) is the Jewish Messiah. You know that already mate. The likelihood of the Antichrist coming from Islam is slim once you realise he would have to deny his own Religion and risk getting immediately Assasinated and have the words "You're the damn Dajjal! Allahu Akbar I'm killing you right now!".
Fact is in their own weird manner they do believe Jesus was the Messiah. They would actually side with us on this one Hindsite.
In Islamic eschatology, (Al-Masih ad-Dajjal, literally "The Deceiving Messiah"), is an anti-messiah figure (similar to the Christian concept of an antichrist), who will appear to deceive humanity before the second coming of "Isa", as Jesus is known by Muslims.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antichrist
All the nations around Israel from which the Antichrist will arrive are all Muslim nations.
It is possible that the man of sin will be of mixed descent.
