Was Jesus the Jewish Messiah?

Why is it so hard for Jews to believe that Jesus from Nazareth is their Messiah?
Was he who worked so many miracles really so weak or a weakling?
Was that one who himself took his life again after his death really a weakling?
I guess that Jesus was in fact the most powerful man who has ever lived on earth.
I think that being the Jewish Messiah would go very well with Jesus.

In any case, Jesus was born Jewish and he died Jewish.

Jewish are still looking for their Messiah. This Messiah according to them would free them from their enemy and they mostly relate it to the physical world and Jesus told them it is not.

Jesus himself declared he is what the people of Israel were promised. People never agree in one teaching they always see their own way and I believe it will be until the end.

You make a mistake when you assume Jesus' freeing would be merely spiritual - no, when Jesus will return in the form and glory of God, he will use physical violence to free his people. When Jesus will return, his living people will comprise mostly Jewish Christians (Jews who converted to Christianity).

The problem of the present Jews is that they cannot understand why Jesus was that meek and humble when he lived on earth; they consider Jesus' meekness and humility as weakness.

Yet, the reason why Jesus will return in the form and glory of God is that he was so meek and humble when he lived on earth. God, the Father, bestowed upon Jesus, God, the Son, the divine honour of being ruler of the universe and ruler of all history (Kyrios). God exalted Jesus because he obeyed God.

God would exalt the Jews if they would start to believe that Jesus from Nazareth is their spiritual Messiah. If they would become meek and humble through Jesus, God himself would wage their wars.

Jesus was and is the Jewish messiah as he still lives today seated on the right hand of the father in heaven. All any Jewish person or anyone else has to do is to speak to him and ask him to forgive them for their sins and ask him to come into their heart and reveal himself to them. Pray to jesus for revelation of his will for their life.

Do you see baptism as a mere symbolic act, or do you think that God acts during baptism?

As for me, I believe that the only true baptism is the sacramental baptism, and during that baptism God acts and regenerates the person to be baptized - this is also the rebirth out of Water and Spirit.

Through the rebirth or sacramental baptism we get really connected with Jesus, Lord and God. Baptism becomes effective if we repent and believe - baptism is no magical-mechanical act. God regards our will.

What you refer to as “the only true baptism is the sacramental baptism” originates from Catholic dogma, NOT the teaching of Christ. Jesus spoke of becoming ‘born again’ as a spiritual birth – the water representing our physical birth, the spirit signifying the entrance of His Spirit into our life after acceptance of Him as Lord and Savior. ‘Sacramental baptism’ is a physical ritual to symbolize this spiritual union with God.

In Catholicism, infant baptism is performed resulting in someone other than the individual themselves (the baby) ‘confessing’ their acceptance of Christ. This is inconsistent with what Scripture teaches.
Therefore, I agree – “Through the rebirth or sacramental baptism we get really connected with Jesus, Lord and God. Baptism becomes effective if we repent and believe - baptism is no magical-mechanical act. God regards our will.

Nevertheless, I would eliminate the term ‘sacramental baptism’ from the equation. No ritual (or 'sacrament') can of itself provide the reconciliation and right relationship with God in Christ. Many who practice religious exercises merely replace a personal relationship with God with a works based idea of salvation. To place undue emphasis upon 'sacraments' conflicts with NT teaching on salvation by grace.

Emphasis upon sacraments doesn't conflict with NT teaching on salvation by grace. According to the evidence of the Bible, sacramental baptism is the true and only baptism. Sacramental baptism was by no means invented by any lousy pope but by Jesus Christ himself - I am not a Roman Catholic but a Protestant or Lutheran. By the way, Bonhoeffer, the great brave German Protestant pastor, had the same opinion like me; this is just the opinion of the early Church founded by Jesus and the 12 apostles.

The term 'sacrament' is NOT found in Scripture. It is as I properly informed a ritual originating in Roman Catholicism - 3 centuries AFTER Christ. Jesus did NOT 'invent' it! Lutheran Theology is the result of Martin Luther's objection to several Catholic doctrines. He was a Catholic priest when the Holy Spirit revealed to him that, contrary to Catholic dogma, we are saved by grace, not works. Catholics use sacraments as means of gaining spiritual 'indulgences' (earning God's favor).

Luther further disagreed with the Catholic sacrament of the Mass which teaches & supposes that the elements actually BECOME the literal Body & Blood of Christ at the Consecration part of the ceremony. This is known as “Transubstantiation”. “Consubstantiation” is a term commonly applied to the Lutheran concept of the communion supper. The idea is that in the communion the body and blood of Christ and the bread and wine coexist in union with each other.

Any dogma that attempts to place the real presence of the flesh and blood of Christ into the communion components, in a literal sense, is the result of a misunderstanding of the language employed in the Scriptures. Correct interpretation of the Bible requires the ability to distinguish between language that is used in a figurative sense versus that which is employed in a literal sense.

Normally, a word should be viewed as literal unless other considerations make it impossible to interpret the term in that light. When Jesus took bread & wine, gave them to the disciples, and said, “this is my body ... this is my blood” (Mt. 26:26-28), He quite obviously was not speaking literally, for He still possessed his literal body & blood! Since you are a Lutheran, of course your theology differs in assuming that the last progressive revelation from God was centuries ago.

Luther indeed, had received from God & started the Great Reformation. To his credit, much of the false doctrines of Catholicism were exposed. But many other important heresies have been revealed since, the reason so many different Protestant denominations exist today. I advocate no specific one, but endeavor to reveal Scripture as rightly interpreted by employing the best systematic approach of inter-denominational Bible scholars and Christian Ministers.

Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor but did NOT proclaim the opinion of the early Church founded by Jesus and the 12 apostles relative to sacraments. Sacraments were first introduced as an "outward and visible sign of inward and spiritual grace," Tertullian (c. 160–c. 220) first introduced the term translated from the Latin word ‘sacramentum’, which soldiers used to denote oaths they took and intended to keep as a sign of the beginning of a new life, so too was initiation into the Christian

community through sacraments. This view prevailed through the centuries before Luther, but have since been widely debated & refined as grace usurped works. Modern Christianity is defined largely by two schools of theology = Liturgical and "non-liturgical" churches based on how elaborate or antiquated the worship; in this usage, churches whose services are unscripted or improvised are called "non-liturgical". They follow no pre-planned order of service, believing the Holy Spirit shall lead.

"Now when they bring you to the synagogues and magistrates and authorities, do not worry about how or what you should answer, or what you should say. For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.” - Lk.12: 11, 12. Most Liturgical churches follow a pre-written 'liturgical calendar' that prescribes the Scripture verses to be used on every particular day, rather than relying on the Spirit's spontaneous anointing for each.

esus is the central figure of Christianity, believed by Christians to be the messiah, the son of God and the second person in the Trinity.

But what do Jews believe about Jesus?

For some Jews, the name alone is nearly synonymous with pogroms and Crusades, charges of deicide and centuries of Christian anti-Semitism.
Other Jews, recently, have come to regard him as a Jewish teacher. This does not mean, however, that they believe, as Christians do, that he was raised from the dead or was the messiah.
While many people now regard Jesus as the founder of Christianity, it is important to note that he did not intend to establish a new religion, at least according to the earliest sources, and he never used the term “Christian.” He was born and lived as a Jew, and his earliest followers were Jews as well. Christianity emerged as a separate religion only in the centuries after Jesus’ death.

Did you know that many of those who had gone through the Red Sea died in the wilderness?

They had left Egypt only in an outward manner, but inside their hearts, they stayed in Egypt.

Briefly: it is all about faith. Certainly, the Jews as a whole have a certain nobility because they are of the stock of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Yet, only a Jew who believes in a redeemer will reap eternal life. The biological descent is not enough - every Jews needs to believe in Jesus Christ, the Redeemer.
