With Jesus fulfilling Judaism, was this with an intention of creating a new religion (Christianity) or retaining Judaism as being fulfilled?

    Jesus did not "fulfill Judaism".

    Such a concept is foreign to Judaism.

    What his exact intentions were are not relevant to that point of view.

    Jesus himself said that people do not put new wine into old bottles. He definitely created a new religion and a new church. New Covenant, new rules.

    He came to save His people from their sins.

    His intention was exactly what happened. To start a new religion.

    "The days are coming," declares the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah." (Jeremiah 31:31)

    He was just another false messiah claimant and a seditionist that got crucified by the Romans.

    The Jews do not accept Jesus as Messiah - he didn't fulfill the prophecy.

      From Judaism's point of view, he didn't.

    Christianity is not a religion: it is a relationship

    It is about Jeremiah 31:31 and Matthew 26:28. Compare Hebrews 8:13, 9:9, 7:12.

    Jesus was never anything but Jewish. He never talked about starting a new religion, in fact the new religion didn't really get started until years after he was gone. He never declared Judaism or the Mosaic Law 'obsolete' in any way, in fact he said not one pen-stroke of it would go away before the end of time. Finally, nothing in his teaching was original or new, he was only REMINDING Jewish people of stuff they already professed to believe.

      The Church was started 10 days after Jesus ascended into Heaven, not years later.
