Objection: "If Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, why don't more Jews believe in Him?"


by Dr. Michael Brown

Answer: “Actually, there are multiplied tens of thousands of Jews who have believed and do believe in him. The problem is that most Jews have not bothered to check into the facts about Jesus, and the only ‘Jesus’ most of them know is either the baby Jesus of Christmas, an emaciated figure hanging on a cross in churches, or the Jesus of the Crusades and Inquisitions. The question is: Why don’t you believe that Jesus is the Messiah? Do you really know who he is?” (See Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus, vol. 1, pp. 21-24.)
