Did any of the Puritans write about the false Jewish Messiah Sabbatai Zevi in 1666? It was the largest Messianic movement for thousands of years, with a large proportion of European Jews following him. He reversed sin and righteousness and encouraged scandalous living. After Zevi was Jacob Frank, who lived very evil and encouraged his followers to do the same. Did the Puritans or Reformers mention these Messianic Jews or false Messiahs?
