    No, it wasn't absurdity, dear one. Look at Isaiah 9:6,7. Jehovah himself had to be born as a baby. Christ claimed to be the fulfillment of that scripture. It certainly doesn't refer to Hezekiah -- he was not the mighty God, much less the everlasting Father.

    Jesus didn't betray Jewish beliefs. He was a devout Jew and a Christian. The two religions used to be very much alike. They have both changed since then. In fact, he sought to restore Israel to the worship of Elohim, the father and God of YHWH (whom Jesus Christ claimed to be).

    Jehovah being born as a man used to be an important belief in Judaism, dear one. He had to have an immortal father so he could resurrect himself and do his miracles. He had to have a mortal mother so he could die.

    No, it wasn't an attempt to destroy Judaism. In the first century AD, Christianity was basically Judaism restored to its roots with these important changes:

    * The Gospel's principal motivation is supposed to be love for God and for other human beings. The principal motivation used by the Law was fear.

    * The Law pointed us forward to a great and eternal sacrifice for sin. The Gospel teaches that Christ was that sacrifice.:

    No, it was not that at all. It was an attempt to fulfill the old covenant.

    If it was, it began in Deuteronomy 18 when Israel specifically asked for GOD to come to them as a Man and Prophet like Moses, after first experiencing the mortal dread of witnessing Him exhibit all of His Holy Names, (attributes, wisdom and power), in the form of powerful allegorical phenomena upon the holy mountain in Sinai. They pleaded for Him to come to them in a less frightening and more familiar form, if possible.

    GOD did not laugh at the request. He did not become angry or remind Moses and the people that He was 'One' and new forms would somehow divide Him, or that taking on human form was beneath His dignity and power. GOD simply responded to Moses, 'The people have spoken well,' (Deuteronomy 18:17).

    That is the Biblical origin of the 'GOD-MAN' called 'Moshiach,' 'Messiah,' 'Christ' or 'Emanuel,' by the holy prophets, which in Hebrew literally means, 'GOD with us.'

    Israel was also warned at the same time that rejection of Messiah's words or any disobedience to them after He arrived would result in being "cut off forever from the holy congregation," since disobeying Moses carried grave penalties, but disobeying GOD directly carried eternal penalties. The people still agreed to obey GOD and agreed to Him terms.

    The 'attempt to destroy Judaism' would have been any attempt to encourage them to reject Messiah or disobey His holy words after He arrived.
