Is Jesus still Jewish?

Is Jesus still Jewish after being crucified, raising from the dead, ascending into Heaven, and being omnipresent with us?


Dear friend,

In His human nature Jesus was a Jewish man. There is no reason to think this would change because He ascended to heaven. In His divine nature He is God and is not identified as a member of any race or nation.
