Jesus from Rabbinic Sources

This section will consist of a series of quotes from ancient Jewish and rabbinic sources on the Messiah.   The reason for sharing is that many of those who follow Judaism today claim that Jesus came to start a new religion that was totally foreign to Jews of His day and that Christianity is totally incompatible with the TaNaKH (Old Testament).  These writings are shared to reveal that many of the ancient beliefs of Jews in regards to who the Messiah would be and what He would do were fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth.

I will be quoting from Rabbinic sources but this is by no means an endorsement of these writings as there is much that I disagree with as many of the beliefs in Judaism are in contradiction to the Word of God.  I am glad to hear the thoughts of others but I ask that the conversations be respectful and in love (Ephesians 4:1).

Belief that Jesus is Christ the LORD, God in the flesh, our Redeemer who would suffer for the sins of mankind are rejected in Judaism today, yet in ancient Rabbinic writings all of these doctrines are found.
