I was driving again (See Halachic Discussion: Are Female Converts "Not Niddah" After the Mikvah? ), and had more "what if?" kinds of thoughts, but this time about Moshiach.
I was thinking about the phrase "Moshiach ben David." As most of you know, Moshiach will be the descendant of King David (and the first convert, Ruth!). But is Moshiach fated to be male? ("Ben" means "son of.") Does Mosiach have to be male?
Further, will Moshiach know he's Moshiach?? That would be trippy.
