Rabbi Jesus stated in MAtthew 5:17-20 that he was Not here to start a new religion; but to fix the Jewish one. Also requiring us to obey ALL of God's Commandments! That is all 613 of them! Number 11 & 12 are in the same chapter as the first ten!... In Acts the "Christians met in the Synagogues in the evenings".... IF we had stuck to obey ALL that is told/taught us in the Bible; we would be much closer to being all Jews. Just the ones that had believed that Jesus was/is the Christ.
"Messianic Judaism" is the Christian religion that is obeying the Bible the closest these days. Take a peak at them.Source(s): Bible

Jesus was the Messiah for ALL and not just Jews. Pilate, out of sarcasm, was the one that placed the sign "King of Jews."

There is no historical person as jesus. Even the name is less than 400 years old in the xian bibles. The early church didn't believe christ was god, nor did they believe that god was a trinity
It is interesting to note that the oldest of Greek manuscripts do not give a name to the central character of Paul's writings. xrstos was used, meaning anointed.
christianity is ever changing, xrstos became Latinised to christ, the early church taught it was blasphemy to direct prayers to christ as late as 280.
325 the Nicean Creed declares christ to be the very god of gods
381 Council of Constantinople invents "Three persons in 1 god."
Emperor Theodosius - Describing god as a committee of 3 co-equal persons decreed not believing in the trinity was punishable by death in 388 !
christianity continued to change in some places the Latin christ was given the name I Zeus in the earliest English versions. This is one of the many reasons the church gave for removing the nt from the hands of the common people. As the church believed the people would link their central character with the Greek father of gods. I Zeus was later changed to the less known name of the Greek Goddess of healing, IESous. In 1630 the name "jesus" first appears, and more recently yet another change has begun. As of December 31, 2009 the Roman catholic church has begun to use the name "allah" in referring to jesus.
How can this be ? The author always has the right to edit their own book.
christianity was formed by Rome for 2 reasons:
1.) to unite the Roman Empire that was threatening to divide again due to religious wars within its borders
2.) in an attempt to gain new territory for the Roman Empire using the common people rather than military effort
Scripture says the Messiah has to meet certain qualifications
Be a spiritual and military/political leader (e.g., Is 2:3, 11:2; Dan 7:14)
Be married and have children during his term (e.g., Ezek 46:16-17)
Scripture says the Messiah must do or bring certain things in 1 lifetime to be Messiah
Building the Third Temple in Jerusalem (e.g., Ezek 37:26-28)
In-gathering of Jewish exiles to Israel (e.g., Is 11:12)
Reunification of Judah and Israel into one people (e.g., Ezek 37:22)
World peace (e.g., Is 2:4)
Universal knowledge/worship of G-d (e.g., Is 11:9)
Resurrection of all the dead (e.g., Is 26:19)
There is no mention that a FAILED messiah would come, die and reappear thousands of years later, the above were to be completed in 1 lifetime

Theoretically no because Jesus did not have sex or children if your going on a biblical premise only. You have to either be born jewish or adopt the faith to be a Jew, and most people are not or neither of those two things.

He was not. In fact, Jews believe they killed Jesus themselves for being an heretic. According to their version, Jesus was tied to a tree on a Friday's night, and, as their tradition dictates, couldn't be saved the next day. As a consequence he died, and the myth we all know was born.
Remember: these are the original authors of what came to be the bible we're talking about. If we question their credibility here, why wouldn't we question their credibility on the existence of their god, which is also the christian god?

Not only is there no contemporaneous evidence that jesus existed,
if he did exist, he didn't fulfill the messianic prophesies.
Not all jews accepted jesus as the messiah

We ARE considered to be "Jewish" by our renewed nature.
"And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree;" ~ Rom. 11:17
we are made partakers of the Jewish heritage, and not many of the Christian denomination accept this fact...
"And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise." ~ Gal.3:29
