Ten Reasons for Why the Judaists do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah

From the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem to today, there are still many Jews who haven’t turned to Jesus and acknowledged that he was the Messiah that they have been waiting for. Why? The prophecies of the Messiah are clearly written in the Old Testament of the Bible, why do the people who believe in Jehovah not accept Jesus as their Savior? Below are the top ten reasons for why they don’t accept Jesus, and we look forward to having you to discuss these reasons together with us.

The Authoritativeness of the Original Text of the Bible

Today, the Bible has been translated into thousands of languages, and there are many different versions of the Bible for major languages in the world. If people count the versions translated by heresies, they do not know which one is accurate translation. However, we have the original texts of the Bible which are the authoritative versions for us to interpret the Bible. When we state that the Bible is the inerrant and authoritative Word of God, we point to the original manuscripts of the Bible according to Faith Statement of LIJM.

The Most Important Sentence in the Bible

The most important sentence among the 66 books of the Bible is: “You must be born again.” These words came from the mouth of God who became the incarnation, and the Lord Jesus made repeatedly His statement, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”(Please read John 3:1-8). Unfortunately, many Christian churches no longer teach the truth of rebirth, but regard the faith as a religious concept. Therefore, people cannot see the light and salty of Jesus from believers’ lives, and that has caused churches and believers’ spiritual inanition and desolation.

What Kind of the Gospel do you Preach

Today church leaders always talk about various methods, programs, and plans of preaching the Gospel, but do they think about what kind of the Gospel they deliver to people. Here, we can bring up an example of a common content used by church believers for telling people the Gospel: “God so loved the world and will give them the eternal life; but because of their sins, people are isolated from God. Therefore, Jesus Christ became the sole salvation prepared by God for forgiving human sins. When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, you will get the eternal salvation and have a good relationship with God.” This concise message of the Gospel is from the Bible, and we may easily tell people the basic meaning of God’s salvation; but when we teach people the Bible and do discipleship, we should tell them the whole contents of the biblical truth, especially all teachings from Jesus and the core of the new life in the Lord.

Reading the Bible led by Jesus

Seekers and those who have just become believers often ask how to read the Bible. When we open the Bible, we can see 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament; then which book should we read first? There are many explanations and materials on how to read the Bible, but most of them are from a human perspective.
