Apologist Response to Jews that reject Yeshua being the Messiah. (Note: All references taken from the Torah as we believe it is the final authority - See Torah codes at end of page)

Regarding the prophecies expected to have occurred in A1, A2, A3, and A4 before the Messiah can return, we will explain how they will be in place. What the Jews have not read is that there are THREE earthly returns. On the first visit, the Messiah came as a SAVIOUR. In His second return, He comes for His BRIDE (His faithful followers). In His third and final return, He comes as  KING and JUDGE to rule the Earth. 

Here are the verses that point to His FIRST return as a Saviour. 

He was born in Bethlehem
(Mic 5:2 [KJV])
But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

—-    —-           

(Matt 2:1 [KJV]) Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

He will be born from a Virgin. Note: The meaning of Immanuel is, “G-d with us”.
(Isa 7:14 [KJV])
Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

—-    —-           

(Luke 1:27 [KJV]) To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

—-    —-   —–    —–

His way was prepared by the one with the voice in the wilderness (John the Baptist).
(Isa 40:3-5 [KJV])
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our G-d. 4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

—-    —-           

(Matt 3:1-3 [KJV]) In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

As a man riding on an ass into Jerusalem, He was called King.
(Zech 9:9 [KJV])
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.

—-    —-           

(Mark 11:7 [KJV]) And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.

—-    —-   —–    —–

He was to die by crucifixion (piercing of hands and feet) on His first return on a cross.
(Ps 22:12-20 [KJV])
Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round. 13 They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion. 14 I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels. 15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. 16 For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. 17 I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. 18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. 19 But be not thou far from me, O LORD: O my strength, haste thee to help me. 20 Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

—-    —-           

(John 19:34 [KJV]) But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.


(John 19:23 [KJV]) Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

—-    —-   —–    —–

On His second return, He will come in clouds, as an adult Messiah. He comes and gathers the believers just before the wrath of G-d rains down on the planet. All the prophecies (except for A2) stated above will be in place on this return.
(Dan 7:13 [KJV])
I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

The Messiah mentions Dan 7:13
(Matt 24:30 [KJV])
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

On His third and final return, He brings His saints with Him to rule the Earth. He will return to the mount of Olives and when He stands on the ground there will be a split in the mountain. This is when His worldwide Reign of peace for one thousand years starts. The fulfillment of A2 will begin here.
(Zech 14:4 [KJV])
And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

You will notice here that while He was on the same mountain His disciples asked Him, when will He return? This is called a clue.
(Matt 24:3 [KJV])
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

(Luke 24:25-27 [KJV])
Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

Now we look at the scripture the Jews say disqualifies Yeshua as the Messiah.

B1. No man cannot die for another man’s sin.
(Deut 24:16 [KJV])
The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

TTGM’s Response (TR):
First off Yeshua is not just any man, He is G-d. Read this page that demonstrates Yeshua is G-d. Man that is born from Adam is in sin and is unable to redeem other men from their sin. However, G-d in His mercy came down and became the lamb, and chose to die for our sins.  This is why John said He is the Lamb of G-d that takes away the sin of the world. The Lamb (G-d in the flesh) died for our sins; He was a man that is pure and free from sin, and this made Him the perfect sacrifice. 
(John 1:29 [KJV])
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of G-d, which taketh away the sin of the world.

In the same way, G-d provided a lamb in place of Abraham’s son, He provided a lamb on His first return to die for all mankind.
(Gen 22:8 [KJV])
And Abraham said, My son, G-d will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.


B2. A man that hangs on a tree is cursed. 
(Deut 21:23 [KJV])
His body shall not remain all night upon the tree, but thou shalt in any wise bury him that day; (for he that is hanged is accursed of God;) that thy land be not defiled, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.

It was G-d the Father’s intention to make His son a curse for all mankind. This is why He was hung on a tree; to redeem His people. He took away our curse to become a curse for us.
(Gal 3:13 [KJV])
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

We look at other reasons why Jews do not believe that Yeshua is the Messiah.

C1. Most Jewish people are taught that Jesus is only for Gentiles.
This sentiment isn’t surprising. Growing up, most Jewish people are taught that Jesus is only for Gentiles. Moreover, if a Jewish person decides to follow Jesus, the Jewish community considers them converts to Christianity. At one point in history, such people were considered apostates—lost to the Jewish community, or even to their own families.

This C1 belief is correct. The fact is that the Jesus of the Gentile is not Jewish Yeshua that died on the cross. We invite you to listen to Presentation 1. This video describes how a Jewish faith in Yeshua (Christ) changed into a Gentile faith in Jesus;


C2. If G-d the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are perfect why do they need to save mankind?
Why would a perfect being need an imperfect man to be with Him? If He is perfect He has everything He needs nothing.  

Yes, G-d is perfect, He is also a G-d of love. In His perfection and love it is impossible for Him to walk away and not rescue fallen mankind. His plan revealed shows us He sent His perfect Son to be the perfect sacrifice (lamb) to die for our sins. He is the Messiah our King and our Lord.   

Be blessed in understanding.

Is Jesus the Messiah - A Judaism vs. Judaism debate

Listen to Ken Ammi (Author) on is Jesus the Jewish Messiah – see Presentation 3

In this book, Ken Ammi reviews some objections to the claim that Jesus is the Messiah and responds to them by appealing to Judaism’s very own literature—from ancient to modern.

The main categories considered within this text are that of identity (such as the question of who is a Jew? and anti-Semitism), theology (such as Jewish Messianic concepts, will the Messiah be “The LORD”?, etc.) and disputations regarding the Bible’s contents, concepts and contexts (such as Psalm 22, Isaiah 9 and Isaiah 53).
In short, this text combines considerations of Jewish literacy and Jewish history (or Judaism history) in terms of that which Rabbinic authority, Rabbinic council, Rabbinic tradition had to say about the Messiah complex (as in complicated and also as in to seek to achieve) so as to determine to answer the question is Jesus calling us to accept Him as Messiah?
