Why don’t Jews believe in Jesus? Are they just stubborn and knuckle-headed or reject it on a whim of personal arrogance? That is sorta what I thought in the past.
Turns out Jews have some big theological reasons as to why they remain Jewish. (Sure one could argue that their theological reasons are wrong, but they certainly exist.)
Jews claim that:
- Jesus did not fulfill the Messianic prophecies
- Jesus did not embody the personal qualifications of Messiah
- There are mistranslated verses “referring” to Jesus
- Jewish belief is based solely on national revelation
