They say Jesus was born a Jew, he went against Pharisaic Jews who believed they controlled the faith. He said put off all their rules and live your own faith. The Pharisees had Jesus crucified and have written unfavorably about him in the Talmud, in the Gemara section. The Talmud is a central text of Rabbinic Judaism. Pharisaic beliefs are the liturgical and ritualistic basis for Rabbinic Judaism – Sadducee Judaism saw the Torah (Old Testament) as the sole source of divine authority. As it pertains to the New Testament, Paul wrote 40% of the books and he was a Pharisee and a Roman citizen, even though Jesus said Peter would be the rock of the church. Paul (Saul) even held the cloaks of the people who stoned Steven to death, one of the first to be killed for Christianity. The Quran speaks more favorably about Jesus (Isa) than the Talmud. Judaism does not believe Jesus was the Messiah, but their story of the coming Messiah is the same story as the second coming of Jesus, in the Bible and the Quran. Jesus comes down on the Mount of Olives and walks across a bridge over the Kendron Valley, will go straight into the Third Temple through the Eastern Gate (he does not take a left and go towards the Dome of the Rock). The Quran says Jesus will then see the Mahdi – and then all three books say Jesus (Messiah, Isa) will fight the Anti-Christ.
