To: Just another Joe
Of course Jesus was a Jew. That has always been understood.
Hey, I had a high-school teacher at a private Christian school who would argue with anyone until he was blue in the face that Jesus was not a Jew. Not sure that the fact that th eteacher was from Jordan had anything to do with it, but he was emphatic. I personally dont know the argument.
If your teacher was Muslim, they also don't believe Jesus was crucified, but was assumed into heaven while some other poor sap was nailed up. Anybody who seriously tries to refute the fact that Jesus was a Jew has an anti-Jewish agenda, IMHO.

What a fool that "christian" teacher was to argue that Jesus was not a Jew. Countless scriptures in the Old Testament pointed to His coming from the lineage of David, the stake of His execution read "King of the Jews", etc. etc. What a fool of a "teacher", he/she should have studied the Word of God instead of pretending to know Him.

What did the teacher think JC was, Chinese? Hang-ups about jews must be one of the most bizarre aspects of humanity's long recorded history. We still can't laugh about these hang-ups because they are still prevalent today.
Here's more proof Jesus was Jewish: 1. He lived at home until he was thirty, 2. He thought his mother was a virgin, 3. His mother treated him like God.
;) old joke, I know....
