Why Jews reject Jesus
In this section, I am addressing our readers in a more personal manner, while stating a few reasons why Jews
don't believe in Jesus.
It is written in the New Testament that during the holiday of Passover, Jesus entered the Temple with a whip
of cords, he overturned tables, and blocked the people from walking through. He cursed those who disagreed
with him, and he even cursed a fig tree because he was hungry, and he found only leaves on it. Consider a pious
and religious man whom you admire, can you imagine him behaving like this? And if he did, what would you think?
The New Testament revealed what Jesus' family thought of him. They felt that he was insane, and that his
brothers did not believe in him. Should this not be an indicator? If this is what they thought, and they lived with
him, then, why should anyone think that they know better?
In our index of verses discussed, there are an alleged 74 messianic prophecies about Jesus, we maintain that
not one is. Ask someone who is trustfully, and impartial, and is fluent in Hebrew and English to translate them in
context from the original Hebrew Bible. Determine for yourself, is it the way missionaries would have you believe?
Lastly, it is intrinsically ingrained in the Jewish soul that G-d is One. It is illustrated in various ways in our Hebrew
Bible. G-d is infinitely beyond us. He is the Constant Creator of this massive universe. If you really believe that He
was born as an infant, raised up in a family until manhood, and then died, all in the person of Jesus.....
Then consider what the New Testament also says about Melchizedek, the king of a city-state in the time of
Abraham (Genesis 14:18):
Hebrews 7:3 He is without father or mother or genealogy, and has neither beginning of days nor end of life, but
resembling the son of G-d , he continues a priest forever.
The writers of the New Testament believed that there was a thin veil separating Heaven and Earth. Therefore, it
was easy for them to transform human beings into eternal gods. Their mindset re-surfaces elsewhere:
Acts 14:11 And when the crowds saw what Paul did, they lifted up their voices, saying in Lycaonian: "The gods
have come down to us in the likeness of men!"
