Jewish people believe that no person has ever satisfied the Messianic prophesies of the coming king as stated in the Bible, hence the Jewish people still await the coming of the Messiah. Jesus’ teachings challenge the Jewish view of the Messiah when he proclaims himself as the son of God which is contradictory to Jewish belief. Also, Jesus teaching about the law of Moses was something that challenge the Jews. Seeing Jesus perming miracle on sabbath day is an act that is viewed by the Jewish as contradicting the law of Moses that prohibit any form of work on sabbath day.ReferencesMolloy, M. (2013).

For the Jews the Messiah would be a military leader or king a descendant of King David. The Jews believed from their sacred scriptures likeMicah, Daniel and Isaiah that the Messiah would rule this new world the new Gardenof Eden, free of oppressive enemies, where there would be an abundance of food and women would no longer suffer in childbirth (Molloy, 2013). The Jews did not believe Jesus was the Messiah because; the true Messiah would rebuild the Templein Jerusalem (Jeremiah 33:18), but the Temple was still standing while he lived. He would re lived while the Temple was still standing. Jewish religious law to be the lawof the land (Jeremiah 33:15), he didn’t. Jesus did not do this. He would save Israel, Jesus did the opposite and the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed shortly after his death and Jerusalem pillaged, with the Jews forced into exile. He was to establish a government in Israel, which would be the center of all world government, both for Jews and gentiles (Isaiah 2:2-4; 11:10; 42:1), he did not. Jesus did not do this, nor did he return the exiles to their homeland (Isaiah 11:11-12) making their trust in him as the Messiah doubtful. According to what we know of Jesus’ history he
