I just found a web site called Jews for Judaism. The point of the site is to point out why Jesus was not the Messiah. I didn’t read the whole site so maybe the author or authors addressed my question but it made me wonder; If Jesus was not the Messiah then don’t you think the real one should have come by now?
If you are a Jew by race but not by religion then what difference does it make to you? You don’t believe that a Messiah is coming anyway.
If you are a Jew by race and religion then your Messiah is over-due and maybe you should consider that you missed it. In other words, maybe Jesus really was the guy.
