What’s the difference between Jews and Christians? We can understand it through the attitude of Jews and Christians towards Jesus, 2000 years ago.

We are not stoning you [Jesus] for any of these,” replied the Jews, “but for blasphemy, because you, a mere man, claim to be God.” (John 10:33)

It’s the response to the Word of Jesus, “I and the Father [God Jehovah] are one.” The Jews had a fixed idea: “God cannot appear as a man.” They hated Jesus because Jesus testified Himself as the Christ. Everything that Jesus did was an eyesore to them.

For John [John the Baptist] came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man [Jesus] came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.” ‘But wisdom is proved right by her actions.” (Matthew 11:18-19)

Isn’t this [Jesus] the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother’s name Mary, and aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? Aren’t all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?” (Matthew 13:55-56)

 They could not believe in God who came in the flesh. This was the feature of the Jews. Then, how about the Christians? They had an opposite attitude towards Jesus.

For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus… (1 Timothy 2:5)

The Apostle Paul, who had converted from Judaism to Christianity, preached the man Jesus as the Christ. Simon Peter also confessed: “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.” Like this, Christians esteemed and accepted Jesus who came in the flesh. So we can see that the attitude towards Jesus was totally different between Jews and Christians.

Today, really many people consider themselves as Christians. According to an analysis, about 3 billions are Christians. But how many among them are real Christians? What if they are pretending to be Christians although they have the thought of the Jews? It’s not difficult to find it out.

so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:28)

Jesus promised that He would appear again in the flesh to save mankind. How do 3 billion Christians respond to this Word? Real Christians will confess: “Although the Lord came in the flesh, I believe that You are the Holy One.” Which category do you belong to? To the Jews? Or to the Christians?
