Why Won’t The Jews Believe In Jesus?

Even though the Bible reveals that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, why don’t the Jews believe in Him?

The Messiah Arrives

Since the gospel was first introduced in Genesis 3:15, the people of God have been waiting for their Redeemer, and even Job declared long ago, “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth” (Job 19:25), however the Jews, God’s chosen people, have been waiting for the Messiah, but clearly, the Jews did not accept Jesus as the One Who God was going to send into the world and neither does modern day Israel. This, despite the fact that Moses wrote about the coming of One Who God would send, writing, “I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers. And I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him” (Deut 18:18), but it came with a warning; “And whoever will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him” (Deut 18:19). This is He Whom God referred to as the One Who would come into the world and become flesh, and where the Apostle John writes, “the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). The woman at the well and many other Samaritans of the time were waiting for the coming of the Messiah to come, just like the Jews. The Samaritan woman said, “I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ). When he comes, he will tell us all things” (John 4:25), and when she was convinced that Jesus was the Messiah, she ran back to her village and said, “Come, see a man who told me all that I ever did. Can this be the Christ? They went out of the town and were coming to him” (John 4:29)? Andrew knew he had found the Messiah, and so he “found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ)” (John 4:25), we can see by the two examples that Jesus was known as the Messiah from early on, and by Samaritans and by the Jews. They had seen how He had fulfilled Old Testament prophecies, but the Jews refused to see.

Messiah’s Meaning

The Greek word for Messiah is “Messias” and means “anointed and “Christ” essentially means the same thing. You could safely say that the word “Christ” and “Messiah” stand for God’s anointed (Greek “Christos”). When Matthew is recording the royal lineage of Jesus Christ, he begins by writing, “The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham,” (Matt 1:1),and ends with, “Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called Christ” (Matt 1:16), and in the gospels alone, “Messiah” and “Christ” appear well over 500 times, so obviously Jesus is the anointed of God (“Christos”) and that means He is the Messiah the Jews have long been waiting for. At the Passover Seder, which is the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover, the Jews always leave an empty chair for the Messiah, but they also leave a cup for Elijah the Prophet at the table that is usually filled with wine near the end of the Seder, but at the time of Jesus’ arrival, there was a heightened sense of the coming of the Messiah.

The Prophecy

Even though Jesus fulfilled the signs of the many prophecies of the Old Testament, the Jews would still not accept Him as the Messiah. Many believed that when the Messiah would come, “he would restore all things,” and all nations will come to worship the Lord (Isaiah 2:1-4), and all the implements of war would be forged into implements of agriculture(“swords into plowshares”)…or from a time of war to a time of prosperity (Isaiah 2:5), so when the Messiah died, they saw Jesus as a failure to fulfill what the prophecies foretold about the Messiah, but interestingly, they actually were fulfilled in Him, even those written thousands of years before He came to earth (Psalm 22, 23). He was the Lamb that was led to the slaughter (Isaiah 53:7), making Himself “an offering for guilt” (Isaiah 53:10), and “he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors” (Isaiah 53:12b). Some Orthodox Jews read Isaiah 53 as a prophecy about them and their suffering. They believe they are God’s “suffering servant,” and so they don’t see Jesus as the “Lamb led to the slaughter,” but themselves as the persecuted and afflicted ones. A Messiah that bore the guilt of sinful people (Isaiah 53:10-11) is not the Messiah that the Jews had been expecting. Today if you walked up to a Jewish person, orthodox or not, they’d likely say, “Jesus was nice Jewish boy and a good teacher, but not a prophet, not the Messiah, and not an embodiment of G-d any more than the rest of us are.” They disbelieve Jesus’ claim that the Father and Him are one (John 10:29), so even if you show the Jews a hundred prophecies that were fulfilled by Jesus, they would not accept a Messiah that was crucified and died.

The Blindness

The Apostle Paul who was a former Pharisee, and he understood why the Jews wouldn’t accept Jesus as their Messiah. Paul, in referring to the Jews, tells us why. It was because “their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away” (2nd Cor 3:14), and “to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts” (2nd Cor 3:15), so Paul says, “even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing” (2nd Cor 4:3). For the Jews, and Gentiles, it is only “when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed” (2nd Cor 3:16). Why do the Jews and others reject Jesus Christ? It is because “the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2nd Cor 4:4). In fact, Jesus said that God “has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn, and I would heal them” (John 12:40). What this means is that God must call that person, but only through Christ (John 6:44), just like where Luke wrote: “One who heard us was a woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple goods, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what was said by Paul” (Acts 16:14). Just as Paul’s scales had to be removed (Acts 9), the Jews veil must be removed, and it will someday. It’s just not today. Some Messianic Jews are trusting in Christ, but they are a tiny majority within the entire nation of Israel.

Conclusion

The Jews, like anyone else, cannot receive Jesus without the Spirit of God, because only the Spirit of God can reveal the Son of God, and “these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God” (1st Cor 2:10). It’s not that they will not, but that they cannot, at least yet. Not only does the Bible teach that every single knee will bow and every single tongue ever created will confess that Jesus Christ as Lord (Phil 2:9-11), the timing of a person’s acknowledgement is vital to the eternal destiny. If a person trusts in Christ today or already has, and has bowed the knee and confesses with their tongue voluntarily. Now, they await their eternal rewards, the greatest of which is seeing Jesus Christ for the very first time, but also hearing these precious words from our Lord and Savior, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master” (Matt 25:21-24). Today, the Jews, like much of the world, is blinded to the gospel of Jesus Christ, but it’s not us who make the blind to see; it is God Who saves those who cannot save themselves (Eph 2:1-3), and God will receive everyone who repents and trusts in Christ. Someday, the Jews will believe someday and the nation of Israel will be restored. God has not forsaken His people utterly, and most certainly, He will never leave us or forsake us who are in the Body of Christ (Heb 13:5), and so we can say with complete confidence, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame” (Rom 10:11).

          I got that. I cannot by my own wisdom or strength believe in Jesus Christ. It is a gift of God.

  • Evermyrtle

    I do not beleive that the Jews are denied the “SPIRIT OF GOD,” if anything, they deny the “SPIRIT OF GOD”, I believe it is available for anyone who will accept it, unless they have committed the unpardonable sin, perhaps!!!!!

    • pud

      OH NO!!! THE UNPARDONABLE SIN!!!! Which is what by the way? LOL

    • NathansFather

      Agreed. Only GOD the Father is the heart knower. Salvation is from GOD.

  • Maltnothops

    The answer to the question in the headline is pretty simple: Jesus didn’t fulfill the basic requirements for “messiah”. It is kind of like asking why an NFL team with a 4-12 record didn’t make the playoffs.

    ETA: My experience with Christians is that they see the Hebrew Scriptures as prologue to the Greek scriptures. Jews don’t.

        NONE…Every argument put forward by you lunatics regarding “prophecy” can be shown to be bullshit…SEE? There is NOTHING you can claim or have claimed or will claim that is TRUE..NOTHING!

        Not good enough, obviously.

        I have this funny idea that Jews might have a better understanding of the Jewish messiah than anyone else.

      • pud

        Only a LUNATIC finds anything in these verses of NONSENSE!!

        Numbers 24:17 “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the people of Sheth.”

        “christians don’t want to KNOW anything! They only want shreds of absurdity to confirm what they already “believe’ per their sick dysfunctional CULT!

    • Miranda

      Very true about Christians seeing the Old Testament as prologue, my experience with Jews for Jesus taught me very quickly to stop looking at the Old Testament through the lens of the New, you need to see the New through the Old, and that is much more difficult for most Christians to do due to the depth and complexity of the Old.

      • pud

        LOL…what total delusional gibberish

  • Pro tip: If you want to know why someone believes something, go ask that person why they believe it, instead of asking someone ELSE to make a guess. This article is incredibly naive and invents reasons that the author THINKS the Jews don’t accept Jesus. If you want to know why the Jews really don’t believe Jesus was the Messiah, go find some Jewish people and ask them. It’s a big internet. I’m sure you can find a blog or two that would spell it out.

    • Maltnothops

      Exactly right. At some point in my life I realized that almost everything I thought I knew about Judaism had been told to me by Christians. Christians obviously have a very biased point of view about Judaism.

      So I started taking classes offered by synagogues or Hillel if I was near a campus with one. And finally I found a rabbi who agreed to tutor me one on one. (I made a significant contribution — several thousand dollars — to his synagogue’s rabbi’s discretionary fund.) I made it clear I wasn’t interested in converting. I only wanted to learn. He made it clear he hoped to convert me. We read and discussed the Torah and followed lots of interesting intellectual trails.

      I came away from this multi-year effort with the realization that most of what I had been told about Judaism by Christians was incorrect.

    • NathansFather

      Suggest some links we would appreciate seeing them.

      • I’m not Jewish

        • NathansFather

          Me either.. so where do you get your information?

  • Maltnothops

    Oh, about “Messianic Jews”. They aren’t Jews; they are Christians.

    • Jack Wellman

      Thank you. This is what they call themselves my friend.

      • Maltnothops

        So… if a church calls itself Christian but rejects Jesus as God, you would think of them as Christian? I doubt it.

        We have a word in the English language for people who accept Jesus as god. That word is “Christian”. The JFJ are Christians who employ rituals associated with Judaism. Doesn’t make them Jewish.

        • sg

          Plenty of Jews who are not religious believers at all still consider themselves Jewish because of their family heritage. So, the Jews who become Christians still see themselves as Jewish and Christian.

  • pud

    “The Jews, like anyone else, cannot receive Jesus without the Spirit of God, because only the Spirit of God can reveal the Son of God, and “these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God”

    Has anything more vacuous, hollow, empty, absurd and ill defined ever been written? I don’t think so.

    Define “receiving jesus”
    Define “spirit”
    Define “god”
    Define “spirit searches everything”

    Substitute a more proper word like “imagination” for “spirit” and you’ll be closer to reality.

    In college I volunteered for Jews for Jesus for a few summers, it was a very interesting experience. What I found was that ultimately most don’t ‘reject’ Jesus in an active sense, its more that Jesus is not on the radar for them, the idea of him as the Christ makes no sense from the way they read their scriptures. When it came to discussing issues around Messianic prophecy I have to say quite often the Jewish people I spoke with had a respect and love of scripture that puts many Christians to shame, we can really learn something valuable from how they approach scripture.

    • NathansFather

      Indeed.

  • sg

    Even many non religious Jews still feel a sort of Jewish identity that converting to Christianity would erase. Probably kind of a loyalty thing. Anyway, my son goes to a private Christian school and there are Messianic Jews among the Christian students there.

    • NathansFather

      Amen and praise GOD! In many ways the Messianic Jews are much more learned from the start than we newly born from above Gentiles. They have a fantastic Old Testament background of much learning we do not have.

  • Sam Andrew

    The reason for the disbelief is quite simple, Jesus did not fulfil the role of the Messiah. The key actions of the Messiah are to include the rebuilding of the temple, an ingathering of the exiles, a return to the observances of the Torah, worldwide peace, an global acknowledgement of G-d as the one true god. None of this was done by Jesus, instead a concept of a second coming was created to allow for this to all happen, and to be fair the destruction of the 2nd Temple and war with the Romans within the lifetime of Jesus first disciples could well have made them feel like this was about to happen (after all the temple needs to fall, and Jews scattered for some of the roles to be in need of fulfilling). But still it did not occur.
    The ‘Prophecies’ Jesus supposedly fulfilled are considered vague, at odds with the broader context of a passage from which they are taken, and disjointed in terms of being scattered throughout the Tanakh rather than presented in a clear unambiguous way. It has nothing to do with being ‘blind’ or ‘hard of heart’ and everything to do with the Jesus simply not meeting the criteria of the Messiah, and Christianity as a belief system being inconsistent with the Tanakh which it purports to be based on. Its unfortunate as the picture of the historical Jesus from the Synoptic Gospels shows a dedicated Jew, who may have thought himself the Messiah but wasn’t quite sure, trying to lead a revival in some difficult social and political times, I don’t think Jesus would recognise what his followers have now become. I would recommend ‘Faith Strengthened’ by Isaac Ben Abraham of Troki for further information.

    • Tony Benz

      I retracted my negative comment because the Jews have rebuked me wisely. Still they must come to the Godman Christ. Killing animals in the temple wont save them

      • Sam Andrew

        Thank you for your insightful analysis and thoughts, really contributing to mutual understanding!

      • If you’re a Christian, why not follow Jesus and love your enemies, not kill them. Why not “be compassionate as you Father in heaven is compassionate”? And your language “Have fun in hell maggot.” is not the kind of language that is seasoned with the salt the adds flavour to a conversation. It is totally disrespectful. What a “fine” example of a follower of Jesus, you are!

        • Tony Benz

          Well don’t think it is Christ’s fault for my sin of anger. It is obvious to any born again Christian that Jews and New Agers are some of the people that will be deceived by the antichrist. He will promote a false peace under the guise of a one world government after many global calamities happen. Forgive me for my sin but do understand that you have been warned. YHWH the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ as an atonement sacrifice for our sins. You will face him on judgement day and i can assure you without Christ it will be an ugly day. Read the New Testament i dare you. If you really want to awake from your old testament spell than read revelations.

          • Jihadi Jesus of the book of Revelation is hardly the Prince of Peace of the Sermon on the Mount.

          • Tony Benz

            Worldly peace is exactly what you democratic Jews push hence the whole Antichrist deception . Are you not reminded of what happened with the Tower of Babel? Gods wants us to unite under Christ not under a centralized government

          • NathansFather

            Amen Tony. The Perfect Government of I AM is coming. I look forward to that day. The false peace government will be destroyed. All the remnant will rejoice!

          • Tony Benz

            The second coming of Christ isn’t gonna be a faithful servant he will be a destroyer of evil and unrighteousness. As I said again most Jews will be messianic by then assuming the Elijah and Enoch do their jobs well

          • NathansFather

            We pray so. There are the 144,000 yet to come. Some Jews (not Hebrews) are already awakening to the truth.

          • NathansFather

            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ agreed!
            Yes, the Alpha and Omega will come again and many will no longer be on earth as they will be gone from those who remain faithful.
            It will not be pretty at all for those who deny Him.
            That is why we must stay in the field spreading His Seed.
            We always pray in GOD’s will be done. He knows His children.

          • NathansFather

            What I like about you Tony you admit your sins and apologize and correct the hasty words. 🙂
            Too bad we have others here that do not self-correct. Of which PUD one of the biggest offenders. Poor sad LOST sout! We pity him/her/IT.

            Peace again to you brother and keep posting… as the olde commercial of deodorant says, “Never let them see you sweat ;)” That is why when it gets to a dander raising point of people like PUDinskys trying to “get my goat” I simply block them.

            John being blocked 2 times now. He is currently unblocked as long as he behaves himself in a civil discourse manner. He and I have actually agreed twice now Miracles great and small happen every day we have agreed right Tony?!

            PUD is likely as lost as most deluded entities come as he/she sinks deeper and deeper into the pit that the IT in him/her submits to the Lucifer delusions.
            BUT even PUD may still be saved (although unlikely) by the unmistakable direct confrontation of GOD the Father I AM.

            I pray John does not continue to sink. He is reachable still IF he returns to The Faith.

            Pray for these types of individuals who are atheists, agnostic, and apostates still in desparate need of being born from above.

            As stated in our simple Faith … Love GOD, love others, self last. We love these enemies of GOD. We were enemies of GOD in our lives until we were born from above Holy Spiritually. Whatever “beef” he has with GOD to hate him so I pray John resolves this quickly. I do not want him to die in his sins and go to the left. Such a waste of a human life into spiritual death this would be.

            As a follower of the Way I must love him as must you above ourselves. This is why I continue to take time out of my day seeking to refute and answer his questions. BUT only John may turn himself. Only he can choose to stop persecuting Jesus Iesous Y’shua. No follower of the Way can save a soul. No not one of us. Either God the Father in His will gets through to their self-damning behavior sinning selves or He does not. It’s GOD’s will and not ours. However we may lift their names up to GOD as a proposal. God disposes of each soul as He will. Only He knows the human heart!

          • NathansFather

            WOW great post Tony. Greetings once again!

      • NathansFather

        Very true on killing animals won’t save them. In fact since Jesus Iesous Y’shua became the Passover Lamb for all time and all peoples any animal sacrifice is indeed an abomination. The new modern Sanhedrin YES there is this new body of Zionists…. have in 2016 and 2017 begun sacrificing animals on the area of The Wailing Wall. Yep, look it up folks.
        https://www.duckduckgo.com
        ” animal sacrifice sanhedrin modern abomination ”
        we must make VERY CLEAR that most people who call themselves Jewish (Jew – must come from the Lion of Judah Tribe) are NOT. They are Hebrews and NOT Jewish. Most come from the lost tribes of Israel who really do exist by blood inheritance. Only the Tribe of Judah and the 1/2 of Benjamin are of the royal inheritance line along with their attached Levites. An amazing number of Jews are indeed starting to awaken They are called Messianic Jews. Another phenomenon is the growth of followers of Jesus Iesous Y’shua of converts from Islam. They are called Muslim Background Believers. GOD is indeed still making Transcendental miracles happening when He confronts the most unlikely individuals.

    (3) The Messiah will enter Jerusalem as a king riding on a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9; Mark 11:4-11)
    (4) The Messiah will be betrayed by a friend. (Psalm 41:9; Luke 22:47,48)
    (5) The Messiah’s betrayal money will be used to purchase a potter’s field. (Zechariah 11:13; Matthew 27:9,10)
    (6) The Messiah will be spat upon and struck. (Isaiah 50:6; Matthew 26:67)
    (7) The Messiah’s hands and feet will be pierced. (Psalm 22:16; John 20:25-27)
    (8) Soldiers will gamble for the Messiah’s garments. (Psalm 22:18; Luke 23:34)
    There is no way one man could have fulfilled all 8 of these prophecies unless God was making it happen. Who else controls history? Who else could give us such irrefutable proof for Christianity?
