However, in the eyes of Judaism Jesus was not such a man who Christians believed him to be. Furthermore, Jesus was not God in the flesh nor do Jews belief that the sacrifice that he made was necessary. With the dispute of who Jesus truly is, it raises questions in regards to how to achieve the main beliefs for instance path of salvation, consequences of sins, and even who is truly chosen by God.
Within Judaism salvation is not something that is confessed or proclaimed. rather it is the belief that the relationship of God and the path to heaven is something that they are born into thus it is their love for God that makes a Jew obey the law not out of fear such as it would be for a Christian. Throughout the bible, it is stated that the Jews are God’s chosen people.

If this is the case that would it mean that God sins as well? Should you still extol him if he cannot live up to the demands in which he commands of you?

    Both are intertwined and share many beliefs since Jesus Christ was born and raised as a Jew. Christianity takes all the positive and great aspects from Judaism while improving and omitting all the ideas that did not seem worthy. Also, the main difference between those of the Jewish faith and those of the Christian faith is the concept of how Jesus Christ is god. Jews do not believe God is Jesus, but Christians believe that Jesus is God, and that God is Jesus-for Christians, the two are interchangeable. Jews believe that Jesus Christ is a prophet of God, and recognize him and his teachings, but do not believe he will bring them salvation as Christians do.…

    While comparing the Old Testament to the New testament it became clear Christians are so different. One of the major problems is that we assume to understand Judaism because we believe and read the Old Testament, in our journey to become stronger in our own relationship with Jesus Christ. Misunderstanding that they need to have a savoir, as the Christian faith needs to over the sin of man, in order to enter heaven. In Judaism there is not a need or a plan of salvation. The ideal of Judaism is more of what are you doing with your life and what difference did you make in the world through a righteous life.…

    Another example of the Bible affecting our views of Jesus and redemption and furthermore our insight on mercy and justice is chapter fifty-three in the book of Isaiah. This story tells about a servant who is ordinary in appearance and is hated and rejected, yet willingly takes the pain himself in order to benefit others. As Christians, we see this person as being Jesus which is different from what a Jewish reader would see it as. This is an example of differing views of justice because of how we ourselves might face difficulty in being Christians ourselves and our hope for justice to be served when we leave this life and enter into God’s…

    However, Satan deceives these people because they just know the knowledge about the Bible instead of repentance and faith upon God. It is written in Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Characters of Real Christian First, a real Christian needs to receive God’s Word, live it and bear good fruits, as He said in Matthew 13:23, “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.” Second, a real Christian needs to repent if we do something wrong and believe in God’s Words. In Mark 1:15, He said, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent ye, and believe the gospel.” However, just believe on God’s Word is not enough for being a real Christian; instead, we need to obey the God’s Word (1 John…

    Along with the fact that Christians believe in the Holy Trinity, and the Quran compares that concept to ideal worshipping. However, the ideology that Jesus is not God matched with the ideas of Judaism. They also believe their Messiah has yet to come; while Jesus was just a loyal follower and not a King. The Quran goes into detail on what meats are allowed and which are not, which is a concept that is consistent of Judaism. I thought it was very interesting how some religions are so specific on worship, that even what you consume must be an act of worship to that God.…

    Why should Shylock 's fate be put on trial based on Christian Law when he is a Jew? What is considered a crime in a Christians point of view may not be a crime in the beliefs of a Jew. Just as both religions have different beliefs towards matters like this. Based on how Shylock acts towards Antonio, it seems that he believes in an eye for an eye. As well as for Christians, they believe more towards forgiveness and mercy which ironically they show little mercy towards Shylock in the trial.…

    Alice Cooper has another great quote, “When you’re a Christian, it doesn’t mean you’re going to be good; it means you’ve got a harder road to pull” (Viola). Being a Christian is no easy task and creating stereotypes does not help the problem. Popular stereotypes include Christians don’t drink, everything we say must come from the Bible, and we only care about you becoming a Christian. All of these stereotypes effect Christians deeply because we are all not the same. A Stern Baptists does not drink, however; Lutherans drink as well as Catholics.…

    On the other hand, “many Jews initial response was distrust to the modern changes in reference to Christians teaching Judaism. They were defensive in order to tackle prejudice and antisemitism. Jewish figures had to speak up and remind the people that Jesus was a Jew, and both Jews and Christians speak the same truth from the Old Testament of the Bible” (Kessler & Wenborn, 2005, p.…

    “How can a loving God look at someone who has not heard the Gospel before, and at the moment of dyeing God would send that person to eternal damnation?” in addition to that, when good people are going through trouble and bad times, they would say, how can God allowed that to happen to such a person. These are perhaps; some of the moral reasons people would reject the message of Jesus Christ. Perception is a key, how someone sees what God is doing, in a human way, a limited and narrow way for that matter, would change everything. The Bible declares the words of God by saying; “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9…
