Twenty-six Reasons why Jews Don't Believe in Jesus
Feldheim Publishers, 2007 - Religion - 266 pages
This seminal work was written for Jews, Christians, and the theologically curious. It answers the 2000-year-old question,"Why don't the Jewish People 'believe' in Jesus?" A Christian Old Testament scholar, many Orthodox rabbis, and a former Christian missionary who converted to Judaism have all declared that this book is the indispensable tool for understanding why the Jewish People still await the coming of the true messiah. The author provides Jews, from the unschooled in Torah to the Talmudic scholar, definitive answers to questions and challenges by Christian friends, relatives, and co-workers. In addition, Jews desperately need an easy to understand yet comprehensive resource to understand and reject the claims of so-called 'messianic Jews, ' who specifically target Jews for conversion. Author Asher Norman explains, "Most people would be shocked to learn that according to Jewish theology, when a Jew (not a Gentile) worships Jesus they commit the sin of idolatry, punished by 'kores, ' separation from God forever in the World to come. So-called 'messianic Jews' are a particular problem because they often use highly deceptive practices. They falsely claim that it is possible to be both a Jew and a Christian. Leaders of so-called "messianic synagogues" pretend to be rabbis but are usually ordained Christian ministers. They deceitfully wear and utilize Jewish symbols and mimic Jewish services while worshiping Jesus. There are no over 100 "messianic synagogues" in the 30 states and an additional 15 in foreign countries. With candor and scholarship, the author explains, "Jesus did not fulfill the six main messianic criteria established by prophets of Israel." Significantly, the messiah will be a mortal man, not a 'divine being.' Most people are not aware that Jesus' supernatural history was not original. Jesus was preceded by the pagan religions of god-men/women, such Attis, Adonis, Isis, Mithras and Dionysus. They were all born of virgin mothers on December 25th, Dionysus had 12 disciples and was resurrected after three days in the ground. Mithras utilized a sacred meal using the body and blood of a bull and used baptism to purify initiates." Asher Norman is a lawyer, an Orthodox Jew, and an expert on Jewish-Christian polemics. He has lectured nationally on this subject for several years. He utilizes his legal training to put Christianity's faith claims about Jesus on trial. His Verdict: The Jewish People will never 'believe' in Jesus.
