We both believe in the same God….and we both are waiting for the Messiah…It is just that the Christians are waiting for him to come again….and the Jews are waiting for him to come….We have part Two of the Bible…and they have just Part one…What we call the Old testament….
And the Jews have many more Laws than we do….But they do have the ten that we do…It is just that they have more…Like do not eat Pork…..
and I so love my ham and eggs

Christians believe Jesus was/is the Messiah. The Jews believe he was just a nice Jewish boy who went into his fathers business. Not all that much difference really.

If you read this I think all will understand why we as Jews do not believe that was The Moshiach.
Oh By the way I am Jewish. 🙂

Jewish belief stops at the old testiment. They are awaiting the arrivial of the Messiah who will bring Isreal back to its glory and will rule over men forever. Christians believe that Jesus was that Messiah and has fullfilled the tenets of the law for us and He will restore Isreal in the future and will come again and establish his kingdom over us.
We are the childern of God.

Similarities; they both believe there is a Messiah, whether he has came yet or not, they both believe in our Heavenly Father and Creator, and they both believe in the commandments.
Differences; Most Christians believe the Messiah has came to where Jews do not. Most Christians believe there are only 10 commandments and they no longer have to follow them and Jews know there are more than 10 and they still follow them the way they are suppose to.

We have 613 commandments.

Because Jews don’t believe that Jesus was the Messiah they tend to stick to the rules that were written in the old testament of the Bible eg. They don’t eat pork, they keep the sabbaths, I’m pretty sure the males cover their heads all the time etc.

New Addition For This Post
“Each religion teaches that a Mediator is necessary between man and the Creator — One Who receives the full light of the divine splendor and radiates it over the human world, as the earth’s atmosphere receives and diffuses the warmth of the sun’s rays. This Mediator between God and humanity has different designations though He always brings the same spiritual command.
In one era he is called Abraham, at another time Moses, again he is called Buddha, another time Jesus, and yet another time Mohammad…”
