"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".
Jeremiah 16:19-21

Welcome to What Jews Believe

Jewish beliefs concerning life, death, sin, forgiveness, and atonement are different from Christian beliefs. For this reason, there can be no such thing as a “Jew for Jesus” or a “Messianic Jew.” People who call themselves such are Christians who espouse Christian beliefs. They often claim to be Jews, but their beliefs are distinctly Christian.

1 Jews believe that one person cannot die for the sins of another person.

2 Jews believe that we do not need a blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sins.

3 Jews believe that Jesus was not the messiah.

4 Jews believe that God hates human sacrifices. Who died on the cross? Was it Jesus-the-god, or was it Jesus-the-human? If it was Jesus-the-god, Jews don’t believe that God can die. If it was Jesus-the-human, then all Christians have in the death of Jesus was a human death, a human sacrifice. Jews believe that God hates the very idea of human sacrifice.

5 Jews believe that one is born into the world with original purity, and not with original sin. Jews do not believe in original sin.

6 Jews believe that God is one and indivisible. Jews do not believe in a trinity.

7 Jews believe in The Satan, but not in a devil. There is a difference between The Satan and the devil.

8 Jews believe that God is God, and humans are humans. God does not become human nor do humans become God.

9 Jews believe that “Jews for Jesus,” “Messianic Jews,” and “Hebrew Christians” are no longer Jews, even if they were once Jews.
