Well, here's the opening post:bluethread wrote:What question? Is Yeshua HaMeshiach, of course? Isn't that what this thread is about? I personally do not expect to convince anyone of anything. In spite of any opinions or experiences that one may have had with others, my interest is in examining the questions posed. If others are convinced or not is secondary at best.cnorman18 wrote:What ARE you talking about? What "question"?bluethread wrote: So, how do you suggest we approach the question? Should this thread be off limits to anyone who is not a certified rabbi?
If you think that the point of this thread is to try to convince Jews to accept that our Scripture show that Jesus was the Messiah, or to convince us to believe in Jesus as the Christ -- well, that effort is doomed to failure. As far as I'm concerned, we're just talking and comparing beliefs. I don't say that your beliefs about Jesus are false; I just say that they are not my own, and that they are not Jewish beliefs.
Old saying from my childhood: "Wanna fight? So join the Marines."
So, are you simply refering to the beliefs I have experessed on this thread or is this another post that I am supposed to take as addressed to others and not just me? Sorry, in english "your beliefs" can be singular or plural.
If the question is, "Is the Messiah of Judaism Jesus?" there can be only one answer, that which has consistently been the consensus of the entire Jewish community for two thousand years.Yusef wrote:I think the messiah of Judaism was same Jesus!
Is that true?
"No, he was not."
Guess we're done...
