If you are a Jew, you MUST be looking for your Messiah, still… unless you believe already that Jesus was the Christ. So, my question is: Have you seriously considered the claims of the NEW TESTAMENT about your Messiah?
As a Jew, you must believe Old Testament prophecies, right? Well, the New Testament writers claim that Jesus fulfilled over 360 Old Testament prophecies! Have you researched these claims for yourself? Why not? They point to verifiable evidences from history – that Jesus was the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament! That is exciting. I myself am a follower of Jesus the Christ – because the evidences are too overwhelming to not accept Him as the Messiah.
Felix Pratensis and
Jacob ben Hayyim ibn Adonijah
both became Christians while working
on this text for Jews. Davis says
the editors saw clearly that Jesus
Christ was woven into all the key
figures and narratives of the Old
Testament; it was impossible not to
see Jesus as the Messiah once they
began serious study of the Hebrew texts.

If you turn a blind eye to all the evidences, you will reap what you are sowing. Beware. The blind man sees nothing!
I say this in love: Don’t be lulled into oblivion by the comforts of your pleasured life and secular thinking, doing nothing about your coming eternity without a Savior. There is hell to pay for your blindness. Seek truth.
Don’t accept blindly what blind men mutter from their traditions. Don’t be a fool, living-on without thought to what God has set in motion with the birth of His Chosen One, Jesus of Nazareth, born of Mary, born of God.
