Even if the individual claiming personal revelation performs miracles, they do not prove he is a genuine prophet.All the miracles show – assuming they are genuine – is that he has certain powers. Judaism, unique among all of the world's major religions, does not rely on "claims of miracles" as the basis for its religion.(1) According to Jewish sources, the Messiah will be born of human parents and possess normal physical attributes like other people.
(Exodus 29:7, 1-Kings , 2-Kings 9:3) What is the Messiah supposed to accomplish?
One of the central themes of biblical prophecy is the promise of a future age of perfection characterized by universal peace and recognition of God.
(Targum – Isaiah 11:2; Maimonides – Teshuva 9:2) Prophecy can only exist in Israel when the land is inhabited by a majority of world Jewry, a situation which has not existed since 300 BCE.
During the time of Ezra, when the majority of Jews remained in Babylon, prophecy ended upon the death of the last prophets – Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi.
Jews do not accept Jesus as the messiah because: But first, some background: What exactly is the Messiah?
The word "Messiah" is an English rendering of the Hebrew word Mashiach, which means "anointed." It usually refers to a person initiated into God's service by being anointed with oil.One of the most common questions we receive at is: "Why don't Jews believe in Jesus?" Let's understand why – not to disparage other religions, but rather to clarify the Jewish position.Jewish sources show that the Messiah will fulfill the prophecies outright; in the Bible no concept of a second coming exists.The Messiah will become the greatest prophet in history, second only to Moses.The Christian idea of a virgin birth is derived from the verse in Isaiah describing an "alma" as giving birth.
