Why the Jews reject Christ
And a rebuttal:
Of course he fails to note that while the whole thing "just doesn't make much sense" to Jews today, the original Christians were Jews, the Apostles were Jews, and that there were also many pharisees who became believers. Apparently it made sense to them then, but after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD, a reinterpretation of Judaism was in order.

Judaism simply was never the same after Jesus, and went in two opposing directions, one Christian, the other the Judaism of the Talmud. The dispute remains over biblical interpretation and the identity of Jesus, just as it was in the first century.

And will Judaism, if ever a Temple is rebuilt, even then look like the Book of Ezekiel, or follow the teachings strictly of the Book of Leviticus?
If I recall rightly another Jewish argument is that they say the Messiah won’t die and Jesus of course died on the cross.
