NO. According to Jewish teaching, Jesus is just another human who lived and died. If God wills to reward him with a place in the World to Come, then he will be resurrected with the rest of those God deems worthy, but he will return as just another person.
Probably not.

Paul believed that Jesus would return in his own lifetime and taught his followers to be ready for Jesus' return. When the Thessalonians expressed concern for their friends who had already died while waiting, he gave them an assurance that the dead would be caught up in the air along with those then still living (1 Thessalonians 4:15): "For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep." Of course, this event did not happen during Paul's lifetime nor the lifetimes of those to whom he made this promise.

Next came Mark's Gospel, influenced by Paul's epistles. Mark chapter 13 talks of the return of Jesus, again within present lifetimes. The accurate description of the First Roman-Jewish War and of the civil war that raged within Jerusalem at the time of the Roman siege, were portrayed as heralding this event in the very near future. Once again, Jesus did not return, and the later gospels altered Mark's passage to have a somewhat different meaning focussed on the indeterminate future.

Over the centuries since, and into the twenty-first century, there have hundreds of prophecies of Jesus' imminent return. None has proved true. We can confidently say that Jesus will not return during our lifetimes or the lifetimes of our grandchildren. In fact Jesus is unlikely ever to return - this is simply a biblical legend.
Answer 1: Islamic answer
Yes, Muslims believe in the second coming of Jesus and that Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) will be the only one who can defeat the anti-Christ and the nonbelievers. Generally, Muslims believe that Jesus is still living in the body in the Heaven and that he will appear just before the Final Day , after the coming of the Mahdi, when the world will be purified of sin and unbelief. There will be a final death before the final Resurrection, but all will have believed before that final death.

However, Muslims believe that Jesus (Peace be upon him) was not crucified. They believe that the enemies of Jesus (peace upon him) plotted and planned to crucify Jesus. However, God miraculously saved Jesus and raised him up to Him (to God). God, the all-powerful and the all capable, put the likeness of Jesus (peace upon him) over another man. The enemies of Jesus (peace upon him) thought that this other man is Jesus and they took him and crucified him.

Quran says (meaning English translation):
{...They said, "We killed the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, the messenger of God." They did not kill him, nor did they crucify him, but the likeness of him was put on another man (and they killed that man)...} (Quran, 4/157)

and says:

{ ... Allah (God) raised him up unto himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power and Wise.. and there is none of the people of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the day of Judgment he will be a witness against them} (Quran, 4/158-159)

Generally, Muslims believe that Jesus is still living in the body in the Heaven and that he will appear just before the Final Day , after the coming of the Mahdi, when the world will be purified of sin and unbelief. There will be a final death before the final Resurrection, but all will have believed before that final death.

Answer 2

Yes, it is true. I am not saying this just because I am a Seventh-Day Adventist and it is part of my doctrine, but because the Bible says it is true. Thessalonians 4:16-17 says, "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall be always with the Lord." Not only this, there are signs that Jesus is coming again very soon. In Luke 21:25-28 it says, "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves raring; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectations of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near." Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami in South Asia, the second Gulf War, unrest in many Middle Eastern nations, controversy over immigration policies, sickness and death, these increased maladies point to one thing. Jesus' second coming is near, very near, and we must be ready.

Answer 3
Very true, in a blink of an eye. ; The end will come within the lifetime of Jesus' listeners. : "Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom." -- Matthew 16:28 : "But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God." -- Luke 9:27 : "Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation." -- Matthew 23:36 : "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." -- Matthew 24:34 : "Nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven." -- Matthew 26:64 : "Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power." -- Mark 9:1 : "Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done." -- Mark 13:30 : "And ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven." -- Mark 14:62 : "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled." -- Luke 21:32 : "Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee?" -- John 21:22 ; The end will come within the lifetime of the the New Testament authors. : "Waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ ... that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ." -- 1 Corinthians 1:7-8 : "But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remains, that both they that have wives be as though they had none." -- 1 Corinthians 7:29 : "That ye may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ. -- Philippians 1:10 : "Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." -- 1 Thessalonians 4:17 : "I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." -- 1 Thessalonians 5:23 : "Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son...." -- Hebrews 1:2 : "But now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself." -- Hebrews 9:26 : "Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you." -- 1 Peter 1:20 : "But the end of all things is at hand." -- 1 Peter 4:7 : "Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that Antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time." -- 1 John 2:18 ; The end will come soon. (Within a couple thousand years or so.) : "The Lord is at hand." -- Philippians 4:5 : "For the coming of the Lord draws nigh." -- James 5:8 : "For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry." -- Hebrews 10:37 : "The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass. -- Revelation 1:1 : "The time is at hand." -- Revelation 1:3 : "Behold, I come quickly." -- Revelation 3:11, 22:7, 22:12 : "Surely I come quickly." -- Revelation 22:20

Answer 4
Yes. Matthew 24:14: When the gospel of the kingdom is preached in all the world for a witness to all nations. I believe that most that are alive today will see the second coming, probably between now and the end of 2012. I have not heard anyone else say it, I just see the world moving toward what the Bible says will be in the last days, as in the days of Noah. We have the ability now to spread the gospel throughout the world via the internet to all nations as referenced as the main sign given by Jesus above. There are many other things prophesied (told us by the Spirit of God) in the Bible, but these two are plenty for me to know that it is time to prepare the bride of Christ for His return.

Answer 5
According to the Christian doctrine called Premillenialism/Amellenialism/Postmillenialism, the Rapture and the time the Antichrist will rule on the earth for seven or more years. First there will be 3 and 1/2 years of peace then 3 and 1/2 years of disaster. (Read the book of Revelation in the Bible for more information).

Answer 6
Yes. I believe he will touch our minds and prepare us for the exact time to go overseas to meet him at the exact place he ascended into heaven... (Acts 1:11)...and the dead in Christ shall rise first (I Thess. 4:16) Christ will return to the same spot to collect a small handful of people to make up and complete the Bride (144,000 Jews, & 144,000 gentiles) and bring them back to 3rd Heaven to rule and reign with him 1,000 years over the new earth. After the 1,000 years God, himself will bring Christ and his Bride down to the new earth and they can dwell among the people, as God did at the time of the Garden of Eden. That was God's plan was to live among his people, since the beginning of time! I can't wait for that glorious get ready! In the meantime try to overcome sin! Jesus said that it can be done!

Answer 7
He said that he would. He cannot lie. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life -- and Messiah, coming back as conquering King. Just look around and you'll see the signs.
