Uhm, no. They don't believe that Jesus was the Messiah/God's son.

While Christians, however, do.

That's just the difference, though. I guess there's a few more key differences that smart people can point out.

A Christian is someone who has accepted God/Jesus into their heart and is ready to [try to] live a sin free life, and spead God's words to people who have not heard it. There are different denominations of christianity that believe different things, though. Idk that's what it is for me.

Maybe, but I said they don't believe that Jesus is the Messiah.

That's a reason why they're not Christians.

Yes, but I don't think God was referred to as "Christ" until Jesus came along. Jesus is was differs Christians from Jewish people.

No. Jewish people are Jewish, and Christians are Christian.

In that regard, are Christians Jewish?

Actually.....there was a ppl who referred to him as Christ...but that's a different story.

Christ means messiah in one of those middle east languages.

So technically they did believe in Christ.

they just didn't believe he came to earth as a babe.

As stated, Christians believe Jesus is the Messiah.

Jews, however, are still awaiting for theirs.

Christians follow the New Testement, and Jews the Old Testement.

And according to my teacher, they believe in the same god, but call him by a different name. I'm sure there are also other differences aswell.

I felt this had it's own little special place in it's own special thread.

Which they are. You know what I find hilarious about the monotheistic religions (Christianity, Judaism and Islam) all disliking each other so much? Jesus and Muhammad were both, at some point, Jewish (Jesus's whole life and Muhammad before he took the role of the Prophet). Seriously, I don't get why Jews are so disliked by either of those groups when in reality if it weren't for Judaism neither would exist.

Jesus rejected quite a number of Jewish stuffs, so he on his own actually sort of constitutes another religion altogether.

And Christians have reason to hate on the Jews because the Jews hated on Jesus and crucified him + disciples.

I believe that part of it stems from the fact that they all claimed that Jerusalem was the birthplace of their religion, and, rather than sharing it, they all wanted it for themselves. Also, by nature, humans distrust those who are different from them.

And there's not just divisions between the separate monotheistic religions. Christians have fought a lot against other Christians. There have been a number of bloody conflicts just between Roman Catholics and Protestants.

Just my two cents. P=
