Are the Jews Blind? Is There A Veil Over Our Hearts? Rabbi Tovia Singer Responds
Almost all Christians think that the prophets of the Jewish Bible repeatedly made predictions that the messiah would be the son of God, who would be born to a virgin in Bethlehem, be a great miracle worker, endure a brutal crucifixion, and rise from the dead. As a result of this widespread belief, many Christians are astounded that Jews refuse to believe in their religion. They wonder how Jews could possibly fail to accept their assertion that Jesus is the messiah. Can’t they see the overwhelming evidence to support this claim? Is there some sort of veil over their hearts and eyes? How can a people who produced so many Nobel Prize winners be so dense? Are they just plain stubborn? After all, God chose the Jews to be the recipients and protectors of His sacred oracles. Can such a nation be so clueless?
In this thought-provoking presentation, Rabbi Tovia Singer explores Paul’s popular solution to this nagging conundrum.
