Why don't the Jewish people believe that Jesus was the Messiah?
At www.aish.com, Rabbi Shraga Simmons addresses this sad issue. He lists four main reasons for the Jewish rejection of Jesus Christ as the Messiah. He, like most other rabbis have obviously missed hundreds of fulfilled prophecies in the Old Testament, especially Isaiah 53. Judaism relies on God revealing Himself or His truth to the entire nation, not just to select individuals. But the Scriptures for centuries have recorded the details of the coming Messiah, perfectly fulfilling every prophecy and then recording them in His Holy Word, giving every person access to them. Yet like the blind leading the blind, the majority of Jews don't want to see and accept these facts.
