Jesus & The Prophecies

#1

Post by smashandash » Mon Jun 04, 2018 6:16 am

I’m really struggling with accepting Jesus as the Messiah based on Gods word in the Torah!

Jews do not accept Jesus as the messiah because:

Jesus did not fulfill the messianic prophecies.
Jesus did not embody the personal qualifications of the Messiah.
Biblical verses "referring" to Jesus are mistranslations.
Jewish belief is based on national revelation.
But first, some background: What exactly is the Messiah?

Specifically, the Bible says he will:

Build the Third Temple (Ezekiel 37:26-28).
Gather all Jews back to the Land of Israel (Isaiah 43:5-6).
Usher in an era of world peace, and end all hatred, oppression, suffering and disease. As it says: "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall man learn war anymore." (Isaiah 2:4)
Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: "God will be King over all the world – on that day, God will be One and His Name will be One" (Zechariah 14:9).
If an individual fails to fulfill even one of these conditions, then he cannot be the Messiah.

Jesus didn’t even fulfill one!

Spread universal knowledge of the God of Israel, which will unite humanity as one. As it says: "God will be King over all the world – on that day, God will be One and His Name will be One" (Zechariah 14:9).
I'd argue that Jesus/Christians are fulfilling this through the great commission.

A mere mortal man?

Is your mind so made up concerning that Christians misinterpret scriptures concerning who Jesus is and all verses prophecy about him, if so, would you consider theses again such as isa 53:1-12.

Jews are in Israel right now. Are you saying you are smarter than God on how he should get them there or the time it would take..?

More and more are returning everyday....

The third temple is not built yet. When it is, most likely the anti-messiah will be involved not Jesus...Jesus returns latter and stops the craziness of the last days.
