so i'm writing an informal essay on Leopold Bloom (a character in the book Ulysses) and he's Jewish. the monologue i picked to pick apart was one where he was talking about reading a pamphlet that was passed to him on the blood of the lamb and being saved. I know Jewish people dont believe in Jesus Christ as the son of God, but i've heard conflicting stories like they dont believe in the afterlife, they do believe in the afterlife, they dont believe in Satan... im not allowed to do formal research but i can talk to people so thats why i came here! im sorry if i sound rude im not trying to be!
Well, Jews believe Jesus is not the messiah. They do not believe God incarnates as a human and they also don't believe that one human can die for another persons 'sins.' Judaism is based on study of the Torah (first five books of the Hebrew Bible ). Believing specific information in the Torah, you would be unable to accept all of the Christian ideas about Jesus.

There are different branches of Judaism but for the most part Judaism does include belief in the afterlife and DOES NOT include a belief of Satan. The theories of afterlife just differ from a Christian outlook and Judaism does not concentrate on the afterlife, it concentrates more on how you live your life.

Bloom was saying the stuff in the monologue, right? And he is Jewish. I am not sure is it supposed to be him saying " Are you saved?......"
