Shapiro sees Judaism as incompatible with the New Testament testimony of Jesus as Messiah. Fascinating video, in which he lays out his reasoning:

I've listened to Ben talk about Christianity, and he doesn't understand it. What I've heard him talk about, is a misrepresentation of Christianity.

He's usually really good at understanding whatever topic he's discussing.
John 5:24
24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

LOL, fair enough.
Ben is the type of Jew the be,lives that Jesus did NOT fill the requirements of the Messiah.
According to rabbinic interpretation.
