    Some Christians are more fanatic about Israel than the average Jew. My mom and her Zionist friends used to tell me "bless Israel and you shall be blessed, curse Israel and you shall be cursed".

    John 4:22
    "Salvation is from the Jews"

    Thanks, but I think a lot of Jews feel differently.
    Okay, integrate and rebuild would be better. I just always heard the Messaiah expected was going to be a mighty warrior.

    Do you think that the state of Israel would exist had the Holocaust never happened?

    Yes. It was in the political works well before WW2.

    There is argument on whether or not Israel is a Democracy, what is your opinion on that?

    They are a democracy and anyone who doesn't know that hasn't spent enough time there.

    Anyway, I have reverence for Jews and support Israel. Jewish history is more interesting than any other history to me. They have really gone through fiery ordeals, persecution, wars, and terrorism.

    They were the first people to practice monotheism , and the Bible which is the best seller year after year was written by Jews. Jews win a lot of Noble prizes and are often very intelligent and influential. Jesus of Nazareth, arguably the most influential figure in history, was a Jew ,and declared "salvation is from the Jews".

    They are the chosen people who introduced God's word, precepts, and law, to the world, which is one of the reasons they are despised by so many. That will be truly awesome when their Messaiah arrives!

    I'm delighted that there is Democracy in the middle East, the Holy Land.

    This is a question that may be impossible to answer, but approximately what percent of people that call themselves Jewish are actually descendants of Jacob (Israel)?

    I'm not expecting an answer but just thought I'd ask just in case :)

    I don't know that extensive genetic testing has been done, but the genetic heritage question has some interesting twists and turns such as
    Lemba tribe in southern Africa has Jewish roots, genetic tests reveal

    Not only genetics, but as that article shows, some very significant similarities in rituals were found including the Star of David.

    Sneezed just before my speech program read this, so decided to answer.... Since you blessed me for sneezing. :)
    Because the name 'jesus' is a curse; Yeshua is a Hebrew word meaning Salvation.

    The concept of 'jesus' is heavily based on the false concepts within John, Paul, Simon the stone (petros) about his death and resurrection; not his teachings which interlink across the Tanakh.

    When we consider the concepts of Armilus, and there being a true and false Messiah, then these differences can become apparent.
    Will come after the world is cleansed, where only the Godly will remain (Psalms 37:29), men shall be refined like gold (Zechariah 13:9), and there will only be a few left (Isaiah 24:6), where no ravenous beings shall remain (Ezekiel 34:25, Isaiah 35:9).

    Then the Messiah shall teach the Law of God from Jerusalem, and out of Zion (Isaiah 2:2-4).
    Nope, the Torah prophesied this would happen:

    The New Testament is merely a fulfillment of the causes for these things to happen; Yhvh has done this because of us breaking promises.

    ... Deuteronomy 28:64-66 Yhvh will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth. There you will serve other gods, which you have not known, you nor your fathers, even wood and stone. (65) Among these nations you will find no ease, and there will be no rest for the sole of your foot; but Yhvh will give you there a trembling heart, failing of eyes, and pining of soul. (66) Your life will hang in doubt before you. You will be afraid night and day, and will have no assurance of your life....

    Of course the self-proclaimed prophet can't keep his opinion to himself even though the OP is clearly directed at Jews.

    I'm of Jewish Genealogy, and am quoting Jewish sources....

    Karites can have their own interpretation; plus earlier sects such as Ebionites, and Essenes are Jewish. :innocent:

    Irrelevant that's not how Judaism works.

    Take your Jesus somewhere else.

    That is like applying a hammer to a lock, and wondering why it doesn't fit. :confused:

    Don't really need to be a prophet to read the Tanakh, Jewish literature, and make a decision based on evidence; rather than on Rabbinical conjecture.

    History speaks for its self. :innocent:
