After going to mass yesterday, I was struck by the liturgy of the word. The Passion readings always make me cry, I just can’t help it! But I found that the first reading Isaiah 52:13-53:12 particularly struck me. I know there are some Jewish posters here and wondered what the Jewish position on Jesus is. Did he fullfill some of the Jewish Scriptures? Or all of them? Or none?
If he was not the Messiah, how do Jews view him? What do you expect a Messiah to do that Jesus failed to do?
