John 9:39 Yeshua said, “My coming into this world is itself a judgment—those who cannot see have their eyes opened and those who think they can see become blind.”
It occurs to me that the Jewish orthodox community that is vehemently against Yeshua as their Messiah, are somewhat blind because they do basically the same thing their ancestors did in categorically refusing to give any credibility to their bible (the old covenant – the books of Moses which all point to Yeshua) and follow this rabbi or that rabbi and what this one says or that one says instead of digging into it for themselves to see all the references to their Messiah. But, the day is dawning as we see many becoming Messianic believers as Zechariah and Isaiah foretold. Every book of the old covenant has a reference to Yeshua. Look at the life of Joseph, a perfect example, loved of his father, hated by his brothers because of the dreams he had and told yet in the end, being their salvation. The story of Abraham offering up Isaac but God providing a substitute at the last minute or the serpents that bit the Israelites as they traveled to the Promised Land but if they looked at the bronze serpent on a pole, they were healed of the bite are but a few examples. Such a picture of Yeshua on the cross as He died and paid the penalty for their sins if one would just look and believe. How about what the rabbi’s call the leprous chapter in Isaiah, chapter 53, not to be read, WHAT? There are too many remarkable examples of Yeshua being with them throughout their history … because the bible is His-story of bringing in His children.
