Jesus said he would return, and so the rest is fulfilled then. How is this so unbelievable? The idea actually fulfills prohecy. History tells us that his body was never found, like he never existed . In fact some believe he never existed because there was no body. What if he had really ascended into heaven? flesh and all... Personally, I'd be concerned, especially after reading Isaiah 53. It sounds like the cruxifiction to me. Jesus was likely a member of the pharisees, and a rabbi. Umm, no offense, but there is no evidence at all to back up this theory. That's guess work. The Romans had everything to do with his death and the Jews of his day had little (if anything) to do with it. Guess work. How often did Pharisees get cruxified.? It would have been a rare occurance and written about as such. The tragedy is that the real history and facts have been twisted or lost. Then all history could be tragedy. If it happens with one thing, could surely happen to everything else. Jews don't need a messiah, and they're just fine as they are. I don't know, I'm not Jewish, but what harm is there in a Messiah? There is plenty of evidence dating back from 200 BC aside from religious texts that suggests Jews were waiting for a Messiah. None agreed on interpretation, which seems natural, but jews today are simply not educated on the subject, and so they are not waiting nor could they care.. I note again that the Prophets are in the middle of the Hebrew Bible, not at the end. This was changed for the Christian Bible, which put the prophets at the end. The Bible is fairly chronological. If you read the texts, you can pretty much know what order they go in. All the arguing about whether Jews accept Jesus as the messiah or whether he was the messiah at all is, in reality, quite irrelevant and pointless. If people ignore the religious texts, then it is. It all depends on if a Jew cares. You don't need to believe in a Messiah to be jewish, but if he already came, then waiting is pointless, I agree.
