The Jewish perspective on Christianity and Islam
Christians believed that Jesus was the Messiah whose coming was foretold in the Old Testament, but Jews rejected Jesus as being the Messiah. Jews believe that the Messiah have to be born of male line of King David, he must fulfill the law of the Torah and he have to fulfill these messianic prophesies immediately and not after a “a second coming”. Judaism also castigated Jesus as having taken Jewish monotheism and corrupted it, dividing Jews against themselves and weakening Judaism.
Judaism likewise doesn’t accept Muhammad as a prophet. Nonetheless, the relation between Islam and Judaism is striking far closer in spirit than that between either of those faiths and Christianity. Both Judaism and Islam are fiercely monotheistic, proclaim the unity of god, and believe in personal salvation. Both Jews and Arabs are Semitic people. Judaism and Islam insist that God cannot be portrayed or personified and that he does not possess human form. Thus to both Jews and Muslims, Christian art is shocking and blasphemous. Both Judaism and Islam share many regulations about the slaughter of animals, prohibition of pork and ritual cleanliness.
Jewish scholars would be near unanimous in agreeing that Jewish communities and culture have fared far better over centuries under Islam than under Christianity.
