  • No. Not at all. When reading through the bible you see Him teaching in the synagogue and He was teaching from the old testament and the prophets.

  • Absolutely not. To the contrary, when the woman who had the "issue of blood" touched his cloak, He admonished her. He told her that He had not come for her. He had come for the Jews. It was when she argued that even the "dogs may eat the crumbs from under their Master's table", that He commended her for her faith.

  • no, he still practiced all the festivals, and feasts. But he was the one that they were waiting for, He was the one who came to save the sins of the world. So he still was jewish and He still practiced, but he was also the great teacher who taught us more and came to save us.

  • As a group, they are no longer considered "God's chosen". Salvation is an individual thing, your blood ties to Abraham can't save you. The New Testament recognizes "spiritual Israel" only:
    Matthew21:43 "The kingdom of God shall be taken from you."


    Matthew 21:19 "And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away." (The fig tree was a symbol of the Jewish nation.)


    Matthew 23:38 "Behold, your house is left unto you desolate."


    Galatians 3:28 "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus."

  • Galatians 3:29 "And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."


    Romans 10:12 "For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him."


    Romans 9:6-8 "For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel: Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham,
    are they all children; but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. That is, They which are ... the children of the promise are counted for the seed." (The New Testament teaches the acceptance of spiritual Israel, and the rejection of physical Israel and the children of the flesh.)

  • Romans 2:28, 29 "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter."


    Acts 13:46 "It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles."

  • the woman who had suffered with a flow of blood for years? Jesus praised her faith. (Matthew 9:20-22)
    It was the woman who's daughter was demonized that Jesus told he came only to the Jews, but he still healed the womans daughter, Matt 15:21-26
