Do some Jewish faiths teach that the promised Christ (named Jesus ) was not speaking for God?

    Jesus is completely irrelevant to Judaism. He was not the promised anything for Jews, so the Jewish teachings have nothing to do with Jesus.

    The Jewish messiah was never supposed to have anything to do with virgin births or crucifixions or resurrections-- that was all just Christian misinterpretation of Jewish beliefs.

    The Jewish messiah that was promised to the Jews has not come... they will know him when certain things happen, like he rebuilds the temple, all the Jews return to Israel, every person will recognize the God of the Jews as the true god, and there will be an end to things like war and death.

    Since those messianic prophecies have not been fulfilled, the messiah has not come.

    People who believe Jesus was the Jewish messiah are not Jews-- Jews get to decide what Jewish beliefs are; people who stop believing Jewish beliefs are apostates-- they're Christians, not Jews.

    "Some Jewish faiths"?

    There is one Jewish faith. There are different branches of it, but none of them regards Jesus as a divine being who was the son of God. Whether he was inspired by God in some way is a possibility that Jews can consider, since their own Old Testament tradition is filled with human beings who were supposedly inspired by God.

    There is a fairly recently-founded faith called "Messianic Judaism," which does regard Jesus as the son of God (they call him Yeshua), but this is not considered Judaism by other Jews, and it really isn't. There are also the "Jews for Jesus," but these are Jews who have actually converted to Christianity.

    You sound very confused about Judaism. Perhaps you should do some reading on the subject.

    There is One Jewish religion with some internal groups that are more carefuly observant than others.

    "Christ" is a Greek word and part of a different religion which is only tangentialy related to Judaism.

    So -- Jewish religious materials address "Christ" in same manner as they do Budha or Krishna, or Dionisus ...or the Golden Calf.

    The only reason Jewish religious materials are sometimes forced to address "Jesus Christ" is because Christians force themselves on Jews substantialy more than Budhists or Hindus or Wiccans.

    NOTE "Jews for Jesus" or "Messianic Jews" or "fulfilled Jews" are actualy organizations founded and funded by Evangelical Christian organizations. They are not Jewish groups. They are protestant groups founded for the express purpose of converting Jews to Christianity.

    Jewish answer: Jesus was not the promised Messiah.

    That's it. That's the opinion and finding of ALL branches of Judaism ('messianics' aren't Jews and have NO part in Judaism)

    No one teaches anything about Jesus because he was and is irrelevant.

    Jews do not believe that Jesus was the Messiah because he did not fulfill the mission of the Messiah as described in the Torah.

    Therefore not a prophet.

    A prophet is an individual who is claimed to have been contacted by the supernatural or the divine, and to speak for them.

    for somebody to stay interior the dominion of God, this is what Jesus got here to deliver. He in no way got here to make a faith, this is what Christianity is. Y'all could get that board out your eye and end staring on the specks in others.

    They believe that he wasn't the Jewish Messiah. Most Jews leave it at that. Some might say that he was a Jewish rabbi.
