Jewish Poll on the Identity of the Jesus

I am saying that the Jews didn't know who Jesus was.

The general mass of Jews did not know who Jesus was. Yet there were some that knew the identity of Jesus. Jesus even revealed that he was in fact the Messiah (as well as the Qu'ran). Peter and Luke later make it clear that the Prophet, Messiah, and Son of God is Jesus Christ. If you deny this, then you deny the testimonies of the closest people to Jesus. Jesus promised his disciples the Holy Spirit; so if they received the Holy Spirit, why is it that they proclaim that Jesus is LORD? Because the Holy Spirit is a witness that Jesus is God. The words of the Acts of the Apostles (or better known as the book of Acts of the popular New Testament) are inspired because they were written by the Holy Spirit in which Jesus promised in the Gospels!

Again, the Jews were divided on who Jesus was. We have several different responses. Liar, madman, prophet, Christ, Prophet, blasphemer, Son of David, etc... Jesus of course fit more than one title (Son of David, Prophet, and Christ). But some Jews of course were mistaken. So luckily Jesus tells his who he is and his disciples further expand on who he was. Yet it seems as if you deny what Jesus so clearly claimed. You say that Jesus lied about being the Son of God (or he was mad) but the Qu'ran says Jesus was the Messiah and a blameless prophet! Who is in error?

Muhammad is the prophet like Moses.

Excellent! Back it up with prophecies from the Bible or examples of the Qu'ran that fits with Moses that are uniquely ascribed to Muhammad. And find me proof that Muhammad is Jewish. Please back this high claim with Biblical proof. At least you seem to be supporting the Prophet like Moses is ONE prophet not many (which is contrary to your formal logic).

I hope that we can look at our religions and theology with open minds that will lead to the truth.

May God Bless You
