Re: Did Christ come as a Messiah to the Jewish People?
In the interest of accuracy I feel compelled to disagree with this statement.

Let's say that 60,000 Jews heard Jesus speak during his years of ministry. I think that's a fair estimate.
That means that 99% of the Jews in the world never heard him.
So if they rejected him, it was passive, because they didn't know who he was.
Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it on the islands from afar, and say, "He Who scattered Israel will gather them together and watch them as a shepherd his flock."
