    That Judaism is never going to be "fulfilled" or 'completed". even in the messianic era the entirety of the torah is applied. on top of it- Jesus failed to fulfill ANY of the messianic properties after all

    1) Spoken to the resurrected people lately?

    2) Noticed the absolute lack of war that is to happen in the messianic era?

    3) Seen how people treat all Jews a priests?

    4) Noticed that all the Jews are in Israel?

    5) Seen a rebuilt temple on the Temple Mount?

    6) Seen a reinstated temple service?

    7) Seen any red heffers around lately?

    Now- if you can answer yes to any of those questions- then there is a messianic prophecy fulfilled! Unfortunately- the answer to ALL those questions is no- meaning that Jesus did not fulfill ANY of the messianic prophecies and we are still awaiting the arrival of the messiah.

    its a nonsensical claim.

    I mean theres no concept of ever being "fulfilled" like that.

    the Jewish Messiah has certain tasks that they fulfill. and their fulfilling them, is the very point of that person's existance. and their completing those tasks proves that they are who they are.

    the Jewish messiah is NOT a "Savior" nor is God incarnate or a part of God any more than all people are.

    its empirical fact that 2 of the most important tasks for the messiah to complete, ... have in fact, not been completed. these are actively, and immediately, right now, observable to in fact have not yet occured.

    those being Universal Knowlege of God, and World Peace

    they say they are full of it the christians claim jesus fulfilled hundreds of prophecies as the messiah when in fact there are only around 16 messianic prophecies and virgin birth is not one of them and the jews also say the messiah wouldnt need to do magic tricks like jesus did if a person comes and does miracles and says hes the messiah hes not the messiah would be a normal man the whole virgin birth and miricale crap is taken from older myths and legends

    We can see that really the Jews just ignore them. Obviously they think Jesus is a fake.

    I do too actually.

    Christians are clueless

    No one can fulfill all the Law. There is no righteous man. No even one. The Jews are varied. Many of them are saved by the Lord Jesus Christ. Many of them will be saved, but those who will not repent from there sins, will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
