How would you answer these Jewish objections to Jesus?

    Asking in OBOB for specifically Catholic perspectives but also posting in the Christian Apologetics forum...

    I was browsing around on reddit's /r/Judaism and stumbled upon a wiki link that they had explaining the main objections Jews tend to have to Jesus being the Messiah. I was curious as to how you guys would answer these objections? Please try to answer the actual objections with stuff to back it up, rather than answer with just your opinion.

    Here is a link to the wiki page: https://www.reddit.com/r/Judaism/wiki/jesus
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    briefly many of these objections can and will be answered when the events foretold in Revelation happen.

    as for the Law being fulfilled in Jesus, what is ment is that Jesus showed us the perfect example sent to us by the Father that it is entirely possible for a man to fulfill all of the law, provided that he puts the will of God first over and above all of his human desires. So in order to fulfill the law perfectly, all man had to do from the age of accountability onward was to understand and follow the example and teachings of Jesus as they were lived and written.

    Jesus did this perfectly, and showed by His life lived among them what God intended that the Jewish people should believe and do in order to follow His example. He also addressed and clarified some of the common teachings of His day; teachings that had been misconstrued by the leading teachers of the time as the result of the 300 years of silence from God as well as the corrupting influence of satan, who had not been idle during that time in Jewish history.

    Having done that, Jesus' part of His earthly ministry was finished, and He accomplished all that God sent Him here on Earth to do at that time.
    The second part of Jesus ministry and His reign is yet to be acomplished, and that is why the Jews have these questions of unfulfilled prophesy.

    That final accomplishment which would have answered all the Jews questions would have taken place begining on what we know as Palm Sunday with Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem on the back of a colt, the foal of a donkey.
    If only the Jews would have all recognized Him as their rightful King.

    Some of them did indeed recognize who He was and they worshiped Him.
    But sadly the Jewish leaders of that day did not.
    And they still do not.

    As such it is only by the grace of God that the age continued up to and including our days now.
    But our days are short. And while the mercy of God is long, His justice and righteousness--the very foundation of His throne--demand to be answered.
    The book of Revelation tells us that before the end of the age all men will understand who God is, Who Jesus is, and will then bow down and worship them. And when that happpens then this age will close with the final righteous judgement of Jesus, and the justice and righteousness of God will be answered.

    After that begins the age of the eternal worship of God the Father and the reign of Jesus, God's Son.
    And the Jews will be there who have recognized the Son as belonging to the Father.
    Then their joy will be complete and everlasting. :amen:

    Not to be dismissive here, it's your place, but these things have been debated for nearly 2000 years at this point. You can even see some of the Church Fathers debating Jews on these exact same things. In general, we don't convince you and you don't convince us. Some converts each way, naturally, but overall it's a stalemate. Don't be disappointed if answers on a web forum don't give you ways to defeat the arguments. When both sides of a debate are 100% sure they are correct, there's really no other outcome.

    It's all about faith and two very, very different approaches to scripture and religion.

    This much is true. I was just curious as to how Christians might attempt to answer these. Thanks for posting though!

    Having been on the other side, I can PM you the most common answers that we get back. I wouldn't want to openly post here just because I figure other Christians should post answers but I don't mind PMs.
