What is the Best Evidence That Jesus Was a Fraud?

Jews for Jesus as Messiah (the Christ) – Riksavisen

Christian apologists tell us that the evidence that Jesus of Nazareth is the resurrected Jewish Messiah and Yahweh, God the Creator all rolled into one is very strong. Really? How strong can the evidence be if it has convinced so few of Jesus’ own people—the Jews?

The overwhelming majority of the Jewish people rejected Jesus of Nazareth when he claimed to be their messiah in the first century. And the overwhelming majority of the Jewish people have rejected Jesus of Nazareth as their messiah ever since.

Think about it: If Jesus really did fulfill all the messianic prophecies of the Jewish Bible, why have almost all Jews rejected him? Is their unbelief in Jesus as their messiah due to their “stubbornness and hard-heartedness” as Christians want us to believe? Is it because Jewish scholars are not as smart as Christian scholars? Or is the rejection of Jesus by the overwhelming majority of Jews due to the fact that Jews know the Jewish holy book better than non-Jews, and according to their Jewish holy book—Jesus was a FRAUD!

      1. When one really starts to dissect the “gospel story,” it leaves a LOT of questions that the Christians overlook and/or ignore (I think mostly the latter).

        One thing that stands out to me that they totally ignore is that the gospels were written AFTER Paul had his vision and proclaimed Yeshua as a god — to the GENTILES. It was some years later before a few Jewish individuals took a second look and decided his writings had merit. And the rest, as they say, is history.

          1. The Jews that wrote the gospels apparently thought there was substance to Paul’s flights of fancy because each of them is filled with the magic powers of Yeshua.

                  1. No, seriously. I had never heard/read that the gospels were written by anyone but Jewish individuals. Of course, this is taking the whole thing at face value, you understand.

                    1. Most scholars do not believe that the Gospels were written by the traditional (Jewish) authors. Many (non-evangelical) scholars see the Gospel of John as being anti-semitic, so most likely not written by a Jew. The author of the Gospel of Mark seems unfamiliar with Jewish customs and the geography of Palestine, so again, probably was not a Jew. Most scholars believe that the Gospel of Luke and Acts were written by a Pauline Christian, most likely a Gentile. Only the Gospel of Matthew, as far as I know, has any support (outside of evangelicals and fundamenatalist Protestants) of having a Jewish author.

                    2. Thank you! As I said, I was unaware of this information, although I had read a bit about who wrote Acts. Of course, my personal take on the bible as a whole is suspect, so “who” wrote what is superfluous in the big picture. 🙂

                    3. Even though the author of the Gospel of Matthew may have been a Jewish Christian, even arch conservative, evangelical scholar Richard Bauckham does not believe that it was written by Matthew the Apostle or by any eyewitness. (Neither does he believe that John the Apostle wrote the Gospel of John.) Conservative Christian scholars can’t even agree among themselves on the alleged authors of these four ancient books!
