The following is from the Sojourning With Jews blog
Many Christians have been in this conundrum:
Why don’t you [Jew] believe in Jesus as the Messiah? It’s all right there, it’s plain as day, and so obvious, look at the prophecies.
To which a Jew may reply:
Because I’m Jewish, Jews don’t believe in Jesus.
At which point [most] Christians will say:
But…Jesus, and his disciples were Jewish.
Now, this is a very strange thing to say since we have been stripping Jesus and his disciples of his/their Jewishness for almost 2k years now.
