I was wondering a few things. When your messiah comes back is he suppose to be G-ds son like in the christian bible or just a man and what is he suppose to do that Jesus did not?
For us Jews the Messiah has never arrived, so he's not "coming back", he's just coming. The Messiah is 100% a human being, not the son of G-d, no born from a virgin and he's supposed to achieve his goals when he arrives. The "second coming" is a completely foreign concept in Judaism.
Here's a good article on why Jews don't believe in Jesus

Our messiah, or mashiah, has not yet come. No the messiah will be the son of man and a descendent of King David.
from jewfaq.org: The term "mashiach" literally means "the anointed one," and refers to the ancient practice of anointing kings with oil when they took the throne. The mashiach is the one who will be anointed as king in the End of Days. The word "mashiach" does not mean "savior." The notion of an innocent, divine or semi-divine being who will sacrifice himself to save us from the consequences of our own sins is a purely Christian concept that has no basis in Jewish thought. Unfortunately, this Christian concept has become so deeply ingrained in the English word "messiah" that this English word can no longer be used to refer to the Jewish concept.
