Jewish and Christian Very different.

With Isaiah predicting, according to Christian Religion the reason of Jesus to come, I have been bothered with the question of why? Why have not the Jews realized this long ago and converted? And so I posed this question to my Rabbinical friend from New York City who is now serving his people in Israel. The sentences with the &gt are my words.
Dear Alfred,

> Why is Isaiah interpreted by Christians as the fore telling of Jesus'
> crucifixion and his death appeasing God for Adam's original sin?

Because they simply do not and perhaps never will understand the plain and
Simple meaning of the Word of God. For example, anybody who has read the
Ten commandments should understand that God ONLY holds the sins of the
Fathers against rebelling sons/daughters up to a MAXIMUM of 4 generations.
NOBODY on Earth at the time the Torah was given was only 4 generations
After Adam, so the original sin idea is simply blatant IGNORANCE.
Here's more for an extra, Alfred.
Exodus Chapter 20

1 And God spoke all these words, saying: {S} 2 I am the LORD thy God, who
Brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou
Shalt have no other gods before Me. 3 Thou shalt not make unto thee a
Graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven
Above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the
Earth; 4 thou shalt not bow down unto them, nor serve them; for I the LORD
Thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the
Children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me; 5 and
Showing mercy unto the thousandth generation of them that love Me and keep
My commandments. {S}

> Thus
> allowing the door to be opened again to heaven.

The door was never closed! Not even for Gentiles, if you read the Book of
Jonah, you will see that God forgives the repentant, including the
Repentant Gentile, without SACRIFICE of a human being as required by the
Pagan Christian faith. There is NO sacrifice of humans under the Word of
God, only the sacrifice of 5 kinds of animals (3 mammals and 2 birds).>

Well, take a look at the nice things at


And the two talks at

On the "Suffering Servant" in this chapter.

Alfred, Do read that page linked above and listen to the two talks, and pass them
On to Christians!
I know you from boyhood times in the Village. You were the one who protected me and stuck by me from the Italian kids who hated me just because of my little skull cap. They would take it off my head and throw it on the ground Just to watch me pick it up, kiss it and hold it up to God before placing it back on. You had them apologize to me. For some reason, I could never figure out, you seemed to hold a strange power over them. You always adored God and said there is only one God for all of us. A Natural God. A God that was neither male nor female. We all shouted God is a Male! You only laughed and said when you live forever there is no need to reproduce. And the Catholic school boys jumped all over you, and you answered them the spirit inside of you is immortal it can never die and it is neither female nor male. At the end of the body it returns to our Creator.
Alfred, do you still feel that way?

A nice saying Al!

Shalom from Jerusalem, Israel,
