Starts sentences with "um" and uses the term "dear" ALOT.
You're wrong. Many of the followers of Yeshua believing him to be The Messiah WERE Jews. It was *The Pharisees and Sadducees*
( High Priests - Temple Government Officials ) who had the most problem with accepting Yeshua Ha Mashiach who refered to *them* as:
"of your Father the Devil. white-washed tombs. you who stoned The Prophets. turned My Father's House into a den of iniquity, den of theives. brood of vipers".
And The Jews to this day have never "changed their tune".
Except for Messianic Jews.
Even Secular Historians ( of Ancient & Contemporary ) recognize the Yeshua of The Bible at the center of Christian faith existed.
It's an established fact.
The only question IS: Was he The Messiah. And Science in all of its domains cannot prove or disprove that. It's a matter of faith.
Unless you care to discuss the study on The Shroud of Turin. Secular Scientists are baffled as to WHAT created that Image.
It cannot be duplicated nor replicated by ANY Technology known to Science.

Um.... I'm afraid that's not quite right, dear. Even the Jews were of the opinion that among the hoard of Jesus' in Palestine at that time, none were prophets, none were the sons of Gods. The Jews only changed their tune when they found out there was a buck to be made in it. Need I point out dear that you just flopped out yet another "judgement" to squirm and jerk uncomfortably on the floor.
The movie, The Nativity, was the most accurate depiction of biblical times and Jesus' true heritage.
He definitely looked Jewish. And I mean Jewish in the Middle Eastern sense.
And yes, my pretend namesake, you won't find any historical scholar who denies Jesus' existence.
If you do, they're out of the mainstream and wrong.
