  • Jesus fulfilled the messianic law therefore ending the Jewish line and starting Christianity. The Jews don't believe that Jesus has come. If they did they would be Christians.

  • I do want to note that there are also Messianic Jews. I'm not sure on all the beliefs but I do know that although they do believe that Jesus was the Massia they still keep the Messianic law and up hold Jewish tradition and basic beliefs. They are a kind of "cross breed" between the two belief systems.

    ** If there are any Messianic Jews that read this, please message me! I would love to get some information for my group. I think this is just another example of unknown and misunderstood religion. And through education understanding breeds!

  • Close Sabrina.... but your forgetting the 144 thousand ( which you stated in another thread that they were the only ones going to Heaven which is incorrect.)
    It was the Christians that became grafted into the Jewish tree so to speak. The Jews were preached to first then the Gentiles. I am considered a gentile but grafted in . In time the 144 thousand will come together and proclaim that the Messiah has come. Many jews believed.. Thats who Jesus was speaking to while He was on the earth. It wasnt until He appointed Paul to speak to the Gentiles.

  • Every believer in Christ is a "Jew".The Bible speaks of two Israels, one according to the flesh (Romans 9:3,4) and the other is of God. (Galatians 6:14-16) The Israel of God is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who believe in Jesus Christ (Gal. 3:29) Gentiles who believe are grafted in. They become part of the "same body" with believing Jews (Eph. 3:6). Paul calls this unity of believing Jews and Gentiles, "the mystery of Christ" (Eph. 3:4).
