Judaism and Christianity on the Messiah: Why We Differ

The belief that the messiah died for the sins of the world is the core tenet of the Christian religion. Yet the word “messiah” is nothing more than the equivalent of the Greek word “Christ.” As it turns out, many people are unaware of this, and think that Christ was Jesus’ last name rather than a role of fulfilling clear messianic prophecies of the Jewish Scriptures. In reality, however, “Jesus Christ” is not just a familiar designation, it is a fantastic claim. And a fantastic claim requires fantastic evidence. In this thought-provoking broadcast, Rabbi Tovia Singer delves into fundamental reasons why Judaism does not accept the Christian messiah. Rabbi Singer illustrates why the core teachings and doctrines of the Church are spiritually incompatible with the cornerstone principles expressed by the Prophets of Israel, and are opposed by the most cherished tenets conveyed in the Jewish Scriptures.
