The Jews reject your God, Theofilo. They reject all and every Christian scripture too. They have done so pretty much from the end of the first century until today. There is no convergence.

There is no convergence.

Might try reading your Bible a little closer.

God made a covenant with the Jewish. God cannot break his covenant. We are in the time of Gentiles, but that time is coming to a close.

The Bible tells us that us gentiles were grafted in. We are not the root, but the branches. Paul tells us that if Jews do not continue in unbelief can be grafted back in.

It is through Gods grace and mercy, that HE has allowed us to be grafted in.

Christianity IS NOT a repudiation of Judaism. But Christianity is a fulfilling of Judaism.

We celebrate Christmas and Easter, but those are man made holidays. But most Christians don't celebrate Passover or other Jewish holidays, and yet GOD created those celebrations. They were to be reminders of his great works and faithfulness. And yet gentile Christians don't celebrate them, even though WE are the adopted ones, the grafted ones.

We should NEVER be arrogant in our status or views towards our Jewish brothers.

God loves the Jewish people more than any other people. HE has chosen them.

It should be with humility and thankfulness that we view ourselves, in Gods family.

Why do so many seek an illusory convergence?
