I dont know the jews’ side btw… please explain if you can.
Yes, many of us do.
Our Jewish brothers believe in One G-d, not three. They think that we Christians have three g-ds and so our faith is idolatry.
The Messiah they were looking for (and still are) did fit the Jesus image so they still look.
BTW, “messiah” and “Christ” are just English translations from Hebrew and Greek, respectively, of the same word.
There have been many people who Jews thought were the messiah, but when the man died without fullfilling the prophesies they knew he was not the guy. There have been exceptions. The followers just couldn’t get over the idea that they had believed for so long, so there are other instances where the followers have believed the guy returned as a spirit. So the Jesus story is not unique there. It seems this is a common reaction when hopes are dashed. But they all eventually got over it and realized the messiah had not come.
Except in one case. Paul would not give up on the idea. He had gone around preaching and it had become his job. He loved the attention he got. It seems he was a very talented speaker and gentiles did not know the correct prophesies. Paul lied. Just like lots of TV preachers. But people liked to try out new religions and they liked Christianity.
The Jews were expecting a leader. Why? Because that’s what the prophesies say.
generally they dont get it,
and as bryan said…. the Jewish “side” is simply the empirical fact that jesus did NOT fulfill the prophecys.
he just didnt do the job.
christians generally believe in a second coming. ….. this concept is a work around to the fact that Jesus left most of the prophecys undone.
what christians generally see jesus to be, does not describe the messiah of judaism.
edit: none have yet. if they had then the world would be a very different place!
the messiah will. …. but the Messiah of Judaism isnt gods son or anything… just a guy with a special role.
I am a follower of Christ, but I believe some of those in the Jewish faith don’t believe in or follow the Christ because they didn’t recognize Him when He came.
The Jews wanted to see ‘King David’ so-to-speak. A man draped in fine clothes and crowned with jewels coming to their rescue.
They wanted and expected an ‘earthly’ leader to over throw their enemies and set up a human kingdom that they would participate in ruling.
But, Jesus came as a servant, washing feet and teaching of an unseen Spiritual Kingdom overseen by the meek instead of the earthly greats.
He didn’t wear expensive garments laded in purple and rare gems and stones. In fact He didn’t have a home or any clothes expect the ones He wore.
He taught it is better for our souls if we turn the other cheek when wronged by another, instead of giving back what was given to us.
He seemed to go against what they were taught by Moses, they couldn’t see that Jesus was not changing the Law, but fulfilling it.
Now, some of the Jewish Sects still believe that the Messiah hasn’t come and the many OT prophecies haven’t been fulfilled as of yet.
Sadly, they are missing out on the most miraculous prophecy of the OT, that Jesus has come and offered all of us the opportunity to be saved.
May God Bless them to see the light before it becomes too late.
Most Jewish people just go by what they have been told, and do not investigate for themselves. They would be wise to read the New Testament and books that list the fulfilled prophecies such as Isaiah 53, Isaiah 9:6-7, Micah 5:2.
No, because of the fact in case you worship Jesus (spelled with the two a J or a Y), you switched G-ds. Your god is a human sacrifice. Idolatry is a deal breaker in Judaism. the same section in Deuteronomy that announces do no longer worship statues or animals says do no longer worship human beings – lifeless or alive. Christianity is hence a separate faith. So the version is that Christians do properly known a non-Kosher messiah, no longer that we don’t. ingredient of correction: there is not any “old” testomony in Judiasm. there is Holy Scripture, the Torah, Prophets and Writings (Tanach). Christians have re-written and further to those Scriptures to in good shape their purposes, known because it old and further a clean ex-cement with a number of slurs aimed in the direction of Jews. Their New Addition negates Torah. that’s a good occasion of ways “greater” isn’t everywhere close to greater desirable.
From what i know…the Jews were expecting the messiah…they were expecting the likes of Moses…a King..a powerful person….a strong person who will make all else bow down..
but they got Jesus..who was a carpenter’s son…he did not fit the profile they were looking for….an anticlimax for the Jews..
remember the questions they ask John the baptist..?? remember the questions they ask Jesus……it shows they expected the coming of the messiah..but they dont want to accept Jesus..
No they don’t (on the whole).
There’s no reason to think that he was the messiah. He didn’t do the things that a messiah should do, there’s no thirds temple for example.
He also said that it wasn’t necessary to follow the rules Judaism anymore, which was specifically against what God said. There’s a start.
The Jews are right. he was a false prophet, just like all the rest were.
Just for you to know the truth
There have to be a purpose for life otherwise we will miss the peaceful path of happiness so we want to be just better everyday
What is God? ,
What’s makes God as god? ,
What is God’s Power? ,
For all sort of these questions, I have very limited understanding so Let me give you the point. Well, just try to know, what’s makes God as god, the Power, isn’t it? So what the power can do? Ah? Well, It can give the ability to organise all things and It can give the ability to separate everything and most importantly, the Ability to control everything, Isn’t it? Isn’t it Good? Ah? So, what I try to say here is, from my hard study and research effort with the help from god, I realized that the ability to control everything, the Power of God is gradually increased in the full amount to use so, The Power of God is always the omnipotent and existed among everything so the God now is always the same omnipotent, who is organised us So how could that be possible to be perfect in perfection always, Ah…? And The Power of God, the ability is the reward for us to control everything in a proper manner, like the true God of goodness. So ~ LOVE IS THE ABILITY ~
We have to lift it up little by little towards Perfection. So
If you are humble, please… Pray to know the truth from true God by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit with great faith and. Good in Bad & Bad in Good so the values is most important. God gave us the rights to do what is right for you and sometimes, things can be right in your point of view but wrong in Public point of view so
Basically, just pray about it for the Good Answer and try to do the God’s will first always
I have true testimony of true God
Please, just try to understand the fundamental…
If you think, why so much trouble and pain in this world…? Then there is only one reason, without pain, No pleasure and without pleasure, no pain. So without them, we cannot enjoy this life so always we need them in our development towards the perfection of God. So-so you use pain and pleasure instead of pain and pleasure use you.
It is Wonderful… wonderful nature for us by the true… God. And
we all make mistakes so it is hard to look for star in daylight. So just in faith… it is possible. Like that the faith in true God. And If you think, even expert can be wrong then you have to make the fine research in all most everything so It is hard and some time, it is impossible to achieve so Why we need inappropriate action to find the owner of higher power? SO,
So, just try to understand, because of Lack of faith in true God, we do not have the great gift of understanding of things so just
understand this please.
We cannot get anything from nothing so changing something into this perfect state, we need something or someone so all things are spiritually first, to govern everything by God. So, closely, Have a look at this world of wonders of yours and then you know the truth, when you listen to your real voice and then Having a strong desire to do the best every day then stick with the best to do your best. And most importantly, try to be grateful for what you have now and try to know where you come from to have the great gift of understanding and then, have the faith to become the best winner in your life. And this is the best meaning of happy life.
The Low of mercy cannot rob the Low of justice so God provided the way to our salvation to overcome our sin so Jesus Christ sacrifice is much needed to return to live with God, because God is perfect in perfection so Jesus Christ is our savior to pay our punishment of our sin so-so Because of the perfect love of god for you. So God gave Jesus Christ for us ~ FOR US ~
It is the time to make the great decision.
