Messiah must come after the second coming of Elijah

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://youtu.be/ev0R-m7F_g4 What Judaism teaches The prophet Malachi prophesied that Elijah, who did not die but was taken up by God, would have to come a second time before the Messiah comes. Malachi 3:1 Behold I send My angel (the word also means "messenger"), and he will clear a way before Me. And suddenly, the Lord Whom you seek will come to His Temple. And behold! The angel of the covenant, whom you desire, is coming, says the Lord of Hosts. Malachi 3:23-24 Lo, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord, that he may turn the heart of the fathers back through the children, and the heart of the children back through their fathers-lest I come and smite the…

Did Jesus claim to be the Messiah?

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSQDov6NNp0&t=145s Who did Jesus think he was? Jesus once asked his disciples who do people say he was. They replied, "Some say John the Baptist [a first-century prophet, and a contemporary of Jesus]; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets." But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven." (Matthew 16:14-17) When Jesus was speaking to the Samaritan woman, she said... "I know that Messiah (called Christ) is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us." Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to…

Bible does not teach Messiah will die and be raised again

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://youtu.be/zdgBDJdPoqE He has no form or majesty that we should look at him and no beauty that was to desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And as one from whom men hide their faces, he was despised and we esteemed him not. (Isaiah 53:2-3)  Who esteemed him not? The Jewish people who's giving this prophecy. Isaiah, a Jew. We esteemed him not. Who were the ones that actually delivered Jesus over? Who were the ones that said “Crucify him. Crucify him. Give us Barabbas.” Well, shall I crucify your king? I find no fault in him. And they say what? We have no king but Caesar. And the antagonists towards the ministry of Jesus are in large parts early…

Isaiah 53 refers to the nation of Israel, not the Messiah

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://youtu.be/dwfiOsFUAyA We see, contrary to the servant Israel, which is suffering for its own sin, Isaiah 56: You were so because of your sins and iniquities. The whole testimony of the prophets is that Israel is in exile because of its sins. The whole Torah law of blessing and cursing tells us that if our people were obedient, they would be established in the land. If we were just hoping they would be scattered in exile. And contrast with the servant who would suffer for his own sins, the Messiah, the servant within Israel, the one who seems to fail in his mission to Israel becomes a light to the nation. He is not suffering for his sins but the sins of his own people. When we get to Isaiah…

Jesus commanded his disciples to preach to the Jews only

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://youtu.be/t5882t5r0Sk What Judaism teaches Jesus commanded his disciples to preach to the Jews only. However, his disciples preached to the gentiles as well. Christian response In Matthew 10:5-6 Jesus told his disciples not to preach to the Gentiles during the early part of his ministry when he wanted to focus on the Jews first. These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. This, however, was only for that particular mission. Jesus' mission was for the whole world. Matthew 28:19-20 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded…

If Jews had sinned by rejecting Jesus, why did God still preserve them?

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
https://youtu.be/eJYeXcnUHSQ The survival of the Jews is indeed a miracle considering that throughout the centuries there had been many attempts to exterminate them. However, it cannot be argued that since the Jews have been preserved, it goes to show that they have not wrongly rejected the true Messiah. The reason why the Jews are preserved is that God promised in the Bible that He would preserve them. God, however, says that if the nation of Israel sins, He will punish them. (Jeremiah 30:11) Can we not use this alternative explanation. That while God punished the Jews for rejecting Jesus their Messiah, yet He has kept His promise to preserve them.

Majority of people during Jesus’ time rejected him

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
What Judaism teaches None of the rabbis followed Jesus. Majority of the Jews rejected him except for a handful of uneducated men. Even his own family rejected him. Christian response The Bible records that many people believed that Jesus was the Messiah. Acts 2:41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day. Acts 8:5-6 Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there. When the crowds heard Philip and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said. Even the religious Jews believed. Acts 6:7 So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number of priests became obedient to the faith. A Pharisee by the name of…

Jesus’ failed prophecies prove that he was not the Messiah

Jews reject Jesus as Messiah
What Judaism teaches Jesus cannot be from God because what he prophesied did not come true. Mark 13:30: "Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened." Matthew 24:32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. What did Jesus mean when he says, "This generation will not pass away until all things are fulfilled."? https://youtu.be/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…
