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.
"For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.
