    answer: Jews don't reject Jesus and didn't reject Jesus, he didn't fulfill the prophecies necessary to be the Jewish messiah. No world peace, no messiah. Jesus didn't teach anything new so he wasn't considered a prophet and didn't keep Sabbath so he wasn't seen as a teacher.

    Jesus

    divine birth/divinity - strike (the Jewish Messiah will be human)

    performing miracles - strike (JM won't perform miracles)

    taking on the sins of others - strike (no one can take on the sins of others)

    breaking Sabbath - strike (JM will be observant)

    sacrificed/rising from the dead - strike (G-d rejects human sacrifice)

    prophecies unfilled - strike (JM will accomplish them in one life time)

    being worshiped - strike and out - Jews worship G-d and only G-d

    Jews have the original covenant with G-d

    Christians have a covenant with G-d through Jesus

    Both are wonderful religions, as long as Christians don't push and stop trying to convince Jews the religion is wrong.

    There are too many differences to be compatible religions.

    Differences:

    JUDAISM

    - says that no human can ever die for the sins of others

    CHRISTIANITY

    - says that Jesus died for the sins of mankind

    JUDAISM

    - says that all humans are born pure, and innocent

    CHRISTIANITY

    - some say that all humans are born with 'original sin'.

    JUDAISM

    - says that G-d would never allow/enable a 'virgin birth'

    CHRISTIANITY

    - says that Mary gave birth, though a virgin

    JUDAISM

    - says that no man gets a 'second coming'

    CHRISTIANITY

    - says that Jesus will have a 'second coming'

    JUDAISM

    - says that every human should speak directly to G-d

    CHRISTIANITY

    - Jesus claims in the 'new testament' that the 'only way' to G-d is via him

    JUDAISM

    - says G-d is one, indivisible, cannot be separated into three aspects/incarnations

    CHRISTIANITY

    - some sects speaks of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

    JUDAISM

    - says that we are ALL equally G-d's children

    CHRISTIANITY

    - says that Jesus was 'god's son' above all others

    JUDAISM

    - has no concept of 'hell'

    CHRISTIANITY

    - *some* Christians believe non-believers go to 'hell'

    JUDAISM

    - has no 'devil', the Jewish 'Satan' is just an ordinary angel, under G-d's control

    CHRISTIANITY

    - describes 'Satan' as a devil and 'fallen' angel

    JUDAISM

    - the 'messiah' will be a normal, mortal man who must fulfill all the Jewish messianic prophecies in one normal, mortal lifetime

    CHRISTIANITY

    - Jesus was the 'messiah' and will fulfill the prophecies when he 'returns'

    JUDAISM

    - says that the righteous of ALL faiths will reach 'gan eden' or 'garden of eden'.

    CHRISTIANITY

    - some Christians insist that only those who 'know Christ' can reach heaven

    JUDAISM

    - forbids Jews from trying to convert anyone to Judaism

    CHRISTIANITY

    - believes in actively 'witnessing' and encouraging people to convert to Christianity

    JUDAISM

    - no concept of original sin

    CHRISTIANITY

    - some sects of Christianity believe in “original sin” to justify the need for a savior. Others believe that humankind cannot keep from sinning and requires a savior to cleanse them.

    The reason us jews don't believe jesus is the Messiah.

    in our bible (the torah) it says that "when the Messiah comes all the people of the world shall set aside our differences and join hands". when that did not happen the followers of christ split apart (notice followers of christ not yet christians) some of the followers went back to whatever religion they where in before the started following him. the others said that since the people of the world did not join hands their must be a second coming (note: this was invented by the great-great-great-great grandchildren of the people who lived when christ was alive.) so then became the christian religion that christ would return one day and the people become friends and stuff. however use jews say that it says nothing about a second coming but that when he/she arrives every one will be friends and join hands and stuff, so that must mean that he is not the Messiah. and so we are still looking for the Messiah while christians believe they found him

    PS. maybe christians are right maybe we are right maybe some other religion is right. i am writing this from a jewish point of view so don't get offended or anything

    Yes, man, Judaism is awesome. I love it. The problem with other religions is that the sense of community is not as strong as with Jews. Jews are bound by the Rabbi, their Torah, and the Synagogue.

    Anyway, the Jewish Torah is the Christian Old Testament. In that book, there is a prophecy about the Messiah. He is the person that shall bring Israel and God to power. Everyone shall be happy. We will live in a Utopia. Christians believe that Jesus is the Messiah. Jews, not so much.

    "Why do Jews reject the salvation provided with the aid of Jesus Christ while His presence is all around them?" Is it rather? 'reason I specific do no longer see it. looks to me you're seeing what you prefer to work out. "needless to say, Jews have a sturdy suspicion that Christianity and the acceptance of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the single actual course to salvation, and a few do act on those suspicions, and settle for Him." i'm attempting to no longer snort at that. Do you have any outward symptoms and indications to assist your declare, or are you as quickly as back projecting onto an ancestral religious group? "regardless of if, maximum Jews do no longer take this step, inspite of being surrounded via data, inclusive of the fulfilled prophecies contained interior the previous testomony." Are you questioning of the prophesy that the Messiah may be named Immanuel (no longer Jesus), and be a right away blood descendant of King David (that could't be if Jesus became into an immaculate thought)?

    How can they believe in Jesus as their messiah if he didn't fulfill their prophecies? Many Jewish people believe he existed but that he was just a moral teacher.

    Why argue about these two religions anyway????????

    Jews do agree that Jesus existed but just dont believe hes the messiah

    Christianity Judaism AND Islam are 3 religions which so much in common// perhaps the only 3.

    y not look at Christianity as a proof that yours speaks some truth

    why not compare them and be happy with the religion you are

    asking questions about it shows you doubt your own religion

    Similarities: They worship the same God, they come from the same seed of Abraham.

    Differences: Christian recognize Yeshua (Jesus) as the promised Messiah, Jews are still waiting for the promised Messiah. Muslims recognized Yeshua as the messenger of God but not as God like we Christians do.

    I don't think they rejected him, it's just they didn't notice he existed until the Romans made a big thing about it some 312 years later. No Contemporary Jewish chronicler mentions him, not even Philo of Alexandra, (he lived in Jerusalem, but came from Alexandria). Josephus lived much later and the passage is so obviously a fake.

    Though the law, given through Moses, was glorious yet it only finds out sin and brings condemnation. None can perfectly keep the law and so it cannot give life.

    It was given to bring the knowledge of sin that such knowledge might turn the heart to seek the Lord for His salvation.

    His salvation rests upon His promise and work and any who believe Him will be accepted as Abraham was.

    Abraham did not have the Law of Moses and trusted in God’s promise and that God would provide.

    And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

    His righteousness came by faith and not by law keeping or by doing "good works."

    The law was given to provide a measure and restraint upon sin that by it the heart should turn to the Lord for His promises and provision which the law served to illustrate.

    When Moses spoke with God in the tent of meeting his face shone with the glory and he covered his face until that glory faded away.

    This illustrates the fading glory of the law next to the revelation of God, His provision received by faith and trust in Him.

    ... And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:

    But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.

    But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.

    Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

    There is a blinding upon the Jews, upon their minds, largely by their own teaching and instructing each other and their pride in their own people and their blind nostalgia that they are God's special people irrespective of their sin and disobedience and rebellion. Obviously God's people should be obedient to God if they are to remain His people.

    The Jews, those who try to be serious, cling to the law of Moses and their righteousness by their own works based on that law and therefore not only fail of God's standard but thereby refuse God and His revelation and the perfect righteousness that He gives by faith in what He has accomplished.

    Even throughout the Scriptures, from Abraham and through the history of Israel, it has always been a remnant who are saved by faith and not just because of being born a Jew after the flesh. The latter view is itself terrible pride and superiority.

    The constant sin and falling away of Israel from God to false religions ought to amply demonstrate the point. Any Jew who reads the Bible should be utterly embarrassed and ashamed of his people for their record of sin, disobedience, rebellion and falling away from the true God and alarmed for himself. It is also God witnessing to us by their example that if those He called to be His people were like that then we will all be like that unless we seek Him from the heart.

    Instead the majority follow the example of their forebears and do not seek God for themselves. In that they do not follow Abraham or Moses.

    If you want the witness of God then read the warning of Moses in Deuteronomy 28, especially of scattering, and consider that the Jews have been in exile and dispersion for some 2000 years and their Temple utterly destroyed.

    Any religion that turns the heart from the revelation of God and from seeking Him is the worst on earth.
