How about Daniel 9:25,26? This is a passage whose interpretation is very 
controversial among Christians, and I would be rather interested to hear 
what Jews make of it as well.

And then there are passages like Psalm 2:2, 132:10,17, 1 Samuel 2:10 
which refer primarily to the anointed king of Israel but are taken by 
many to have a secondary reference to the Messiah.
