Jews don’t believe in Jesus, right?

Testimonies
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zw4yEhPXscE&ab_channel=IFoundShalom.com I will never believe in Jesus. I was born a Jew I will die a Jew. How can you expect me to believe in a God whose name my people have been killed. I don't care if it's true. I will never believe in Jesus. I grew up in a loving Jewish family. My mom and dad were very actively involved in the local synagogue and we were there pretty much every Friday or Saturday. We celebrated the holidays and we celebrated Passover at home. My Jewish identity meant a lot to me. Growing up, I decided to go to college where I majored in fashion photography and then after I worked in the photo industry for a couple of years, I decided to fulfill my lifelong passion of…

Ezekiel 18:20 – Can Yeshua die for our sins?

Salvation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvAGIOhlj8c Ezekiel 18:20 - Can Yeshua pay for our sins. Many are rejecting Yeshua as Messiah because they believe the Torah rejects the idea of one human taking on the sins of another. Ezekiel 18:20 The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son. This commandment is only for civil magistrate. It's simply saying that Yahweh doesn't want any judge or officer to persecute one man for another man's crimes or sins. But Yahweh is not a man and over and over again Yahweh does judge many for the sins of one person. For example, in Joshua 7:11, a man named Achan stole treasure and all of Israel took on the punishment. It says “Israel has sinned and they…

Judaism teaches atoning sacrifice of the righteous

Salvation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOVx6iVtI9w You say here “You’re missing the whole point though. We’re Jews and we don’t believe in human sacrifice.” Well of course we don’t believe in human sacrifice. Christians don’t believe in human sacrifice. The whole bible repudiates the idea of human sacrifice but Judaism believes in the atoning power of the death of the righteous. Well-known phrase and Talmudic literature: the death of the righteous atones. So Rabbi Berel Wein, respected Orthodox Jewish historian, he says this: he could refer to an old Jewish tradition dating back to biblical times that the death of the righteous and innocent served as an expiation for the sins of the nation of the world. The Zohar could explain Jewish mysticism with reference to Isaiah 53, that a righteous man is never afflicted…

Turn the other cheek explained

Christians
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIrZBKMdmXA And of course there’s a verse where somebody says “Isn’t it the teaching of the New Testament that we’re supposed to turn the other cheek?” Again, you and I need to understand the Bible. I mean we can’t just quote the Bible and assume things. Let’s learn something about the Bible. Yes, the Bible does say turn the other cheek, if someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also (Luke 6:29). What’s it about? In the biblical culture, striking someone on the cheek was an insult. So lamentations 3:30 “Let him offer his cheek to the one who would strike him and let it be filled with disgrace.” Job got sick and he lost his children in his possessions and he was ridiculed and mocked…

Do Christians have to obey the Old Testament Laws?

Christians
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jm_-BPFVIgc And when it comes to applying the Bible today, there are many, many commandments in the Bible. And should Christians obey them all? We think of all these commands, for instance, in the Old Testament. And some people charge us as Christians with being inconsistent. They'll say, you follow the commandments you happen to agree with, but many other commandments in the Bible, you choose to ignore. For example, the Bible says, don't wear a garment with two different kinds of cloth. So don't wear a garment with polyester and cotton. I mean, we have all kinds of commands like this in the Bible. Don't boil a goat in its mother's milk. I mean, nobody thinks about that commandment, maybe some of you haven't even heard of that command.…

New circumstances requires new laws

Christians
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9PM3wnzqpus Now when we are told that God changed his mind, where did God change his mind? It’s not changing his mind, it’s going along with the plan from the start. And initially he gave the land unconditionally to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But then made a covenant, the Sinai covenant. And we repeatedly failed. In the days of Josiah, this righteous king in the in the early 600 BC, he tried to turn Israel back in repentance and he died and the nation sinned and we went into exile in Babylon and the temple was destroyed. And at that time, what does God (first person) say in Jeremiah 31? Beginning in verse 31: days are coming when I, God (first person), I will make a new covenant with the…

MATTHEW 15 24 Explained | Was Jesus Sent Only To The Jews

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5882t5r0Sk Have you heard somebody quote Matthew 15:24  which says “But he answered and said ‘I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of  Israel’” and then basically turn around and say this: Jesus was only sent to  save the Jews, the house of Israel. I'm going to   show you next how this is actually not true. You may hear this from Muslims as   well and the reason the Muslims will say this because   they don't want Jesus to be the last  significant prophet or person sent to basically   gather people back to God so that they can  smuggle in their prophet and actually make it seem like there was another prophet that  was actually to come after. We're going to read…

The Kingdom of God is at hand

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rPvdX-qcjE And then in (Luke) chapter 10 and verse 9, he said “The kingdom of God has come near to you.” In chapter 11 and verse 20 “If I cast out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.” He preached the kingdom and then he said as demonstrated by his power over satan and demons, the kingdom of God is near. And then he said the kingdom of God has come. He preached that the kingdom had come in chapter 11. Same emphasis, “the kingdom has come”. Chapter 12 verse 31 “Seek for his kingdom and these things will be added to you.” He preached on the kingdom as recorded in chapter 13, chapter 14, chapter 16, chapter 17, chapter 18 and…

This Generation Will Not Pass Away until all things are fulfilled

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xi1c1JAUmKI I personally liked the German bible much more. Now it’s German so I took it upon myself to translate it from German into English. And I believe what they are saying makes a lot of sense. They say the Greek word for “sorrows” actually means “labor pains”. Famine, earthquakes and conflicts have always characterized life in this evil world. But the Lord describes these things as a beginning of labor pains and at the end of this age, these things will become more severe and will announce a soon-coming arrival of the Messiah, who will judge sinning mankind and establish his one-thousand year rule. When the fig tree brings forth leaves, summer is not far off. And when the last labor pains begin, then Christ’s arrival is near and…

Was John the Baptist Elijah?

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev0R-m7F_g4 Was John the Baptist Elijah? I'd like to answer this question in two ways. The first way is for people with a limited amount of time. The answer is no. The second way. Let's dig into the scriptures and see what they have to say. There's a lot of misunderstanding concerning this topic and the misunderstandings come from not looking closely at the grammar, not taking the language of prophecy seriously, and not looking at enough of the relevant passages. MalachI 4:5-6 “Look, I am going to send you the prophet Elijah before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. Otherwise, I will come and strike the land…
