Simple truth: The central claim is baseless

Not sure if I’ve said this before, but even if I have said it before, there’s no harm in repeating it.

One of the central claims of the christian is that Jesus is the messiah who died for our sins and that this was prophesied in the “old testament”, the Jewish Bible.

The problem with this claim is that the Jewish Bible never said the messiah would die for our sins. There is absolutely no place in the Jewish Bible where a messiah will die for our sins.

And it sounds so simple.

There’s no Isaiah 53 that say this. There is no Psalm 22 that makes this claim. No matter where the christian points to in the Jewish Bible, the concept of THE messiah dying as a substitution for us.

Now I know, I know, the christian will do his “cut-and-paste” jigsaw job on the old testament to construct something that resembles their Jesus. But the effort does more to show that their claim is baseless.

So, to repeat, that a messiah would die in our place for our sins is not written in the Jewish Bible.

It is that simple.

About hesedyahu

I'm a gentile living in UK, a person who has chosen to take upon himself the responsibility God has given to all gentiles. God is the greatest aspect of my life and He has blessed me with a family. I used to be a christian, but I learnt the errors of my ways. I love music. I love to play it on the instruments I can play, I love to close my eyes and feel the groove of it. I wrote my songs when I was single and not so happy and since I've been married, I haven't written as much. I guess that shows how happy and blessed I am. What else is there?
