Jesus or Jashua was a Jew who is said to have lived in the first century CE. Jesus is also referred to as Jesus of Nazareth though historians question whether there was a city or even a hamlet called Nazareth at the time. [1] [2] One single house aparently was found. [3]

Christians believe Jesus was G-d based on material that was written at least forty years after his the time by his supporters.

Jews see Jesus as a false Messiah who did not achieve what the true Messiah should achieve. Jesus may have been honestly mistaken rather than an imposter, since we know hardly anything about Jesus except what his supporters said there is no way of telling.

According to Judaism the true Messiah must

*Be an observant Jewish man descended from the house of King David

  • Be an ordinary human being (as opposed to the Son of God)
  • Bring peace to the world
  • Gather all Jews back into Israel
  • Rebuild the ancient Temple in Jerusalem
  • Unite humanity in the worship of G-d and Torah observance [4]

Furthermore, Jews believe that G-d gave a complete and everlasting covenant to his followers in the form of the Tanakh while Christians claim that Jesus brought a new covenant. The two views are incompatible.
