Yes, I said he was a Jew. I also said he was the Messiah. And I added the Jews who believe in Him are called messianic Jews.

They are born Jews, and become Christian Jews/messianic Jews when they accept Jesus as son of God. You can follow Jewish traditions while believing in Jesus.

Feel free to google 'messianic judaism'.

Question: "What is Messianic Judaism?"

Answer: Messianic Judaism is the term given to Jewish people who believe and have accepted Yeshua (the Hebrew name for Jesus) of Nazareth as the promised Messiah of the Hebrew Scriptures. These Jewish people do not stop being Jewish, but they continue to remain strong in their Jewish identity, lifestyle and culture, while following Yeshua as He is revealed in the Brit Chadashah, the New Covenant. Many Messianic Jews refer to themselves as “completed Jews,” since they believe that their faith in the God of Israel has been “completed” or fulfilled in Yeshua.

In that case, what you call things has nothing to do with Jesus, and what he called things. Doesn't that matter?

What does Jesus call you? Not what do you call yourself. I am curious. Does Jesus call you a Christian Jew, or is that a name you accept as your comfort zone?

Because, you did not exist during his ministry. Jesus was not forming a new religion. He was telling the truth about how we should treat each other, and how we should not treat the poor and sick as less than we are.

Call it a Poor Lives Matter movement. The guy liked women, too. Unlike many writers of the NT who wanted to control women, and did not like them.

What is not to like about Jesus. He was man of legend and centuries of stories. He could come out as gay in a future undiscovered gospel, and it would not change a thing.

Not surprisingly you are here to defend that view anyway.
They are?

That explains their willingness to keep the poor from having health care, affordable housing, food, quality education, a living wage but unlimited access to guns and bibles..

Most secular Jews do not believe in the physical coming of a personal Messiah, but some still look forward to a general Messianic concept or Messianic Age.

Are messianic Jews more secular than Rabbinical Judaism?

Thanks again for the link.
