  • There are Jews who are Messianic Jews who believe Jesus is the Savior and then there are Jews who are still waiting for the Messiah.

  • They believe Jesus was a prophet but NOT a savior because they do not believe he was the son of god.

  • No. If they believed that Jesus was the messiah, they would be Christians.

  • NO... Then they would have to admit that they killed him... They would never do that... Besides if they did, they'de be christian.

  • Sabrina...it's been proven that the Jews did not kill Christ....they were his followers! The Pharisees were a whole 'nother story...not the Jewish people as a whole. Please stop spreading that myth. I was born and raised Jewish but accepted Christ as my saviour several years ago...avid Church goer and teach Sunday School.

    To answer OP's original question: modern day Jewish people do not accept that Jesus was the son of God and is not the Messiah. They still await the coming of the Messiah (Meshiach).

    Messianic Jews are the closest to the Jews of Christ's lifetime...still following the dicatates of Jewish Law but accepting that the Messiah has come in the body of Jesus.
