Christians strongly believe that Jewish people first needs to recognize Jesus as Messiah and god before the end comes, and for that reason, they consider as a duty to preach Jews the good news of salvation.
Sometimes they really succeed making messianic Jews and even christian Jews. But, do Jews really need to convert into Christianity to get salvation?
This is an absurd theory when we know that God always defined Himself as the saviour and the redeemer of Israel (see Is. 43, 3; Is. 45, 17; Is. 60, 16; Is. 45, 2; etc.) and as the God of Avraham, the God of Yitshak and the God of Ya'acov (Jews' ancestors).
He also commended Jews not to have another God but Him (meaning that Jews have to serve only one God: the God of their fathers) And we can see in Jewish prayers this recurring formula: "Our God and God of our fathers". However, Jesus never was the god of Avraham, neither the god of Yitsraq nor the god of Yacov. How can he become the god of their descendents? And how should Jews commit themselves into worshiping a god that their ancestors never knew, however Torah clearly says to them not to serve any other god?
In addition, prophecies relating to the end of times clearly show that it is the nations that should turn towards Israel and not the contrary.
In Isaiah 2, 2-4, we can read: "In days to come, the mountain where the temple stands will be the highest one of all, towering above all the hills. Many nations will come streaming to it, and their people will say, let us go up the hill of the LORD, to the temple of Israel's God. He will teach us what he wants us to do; we will walk in the paths He has chosen, for the LORD's teachings come from Jerusalem, from Zion, He speaks to His people."
Then, listen to Zachariah 8, 23: "In those days, ten foreigners will come to one Jew and say, we want to share in your destiny, because we have heard that God is with you".
As we can see, It is the nations that should seek guidance from Jews, not the nations that should guide Jews.
All the arguments then given by Christians to convert Jews are fake and incredible.
First because Jesus was a Jew and always claimed that he did not come to abolish the Law of Moses, as we can read it in Matthew 5, 17-: "Do not think that I have come to do away with the Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets. I have not come to do away with them, but to make their teachings come true. Remember that as long as heaven and earth last, not the least point nor the smallest detail of the Law will be done away with".
Secondly because the Christianity of the first centuries was very different of the Christianity of today, as it is shown in other articles.
So Jews do not have to follow a religion that despises the Torah and that has always sought the annihilation of Judaism, first by violence (remember Inquisitions, crusades and Shoah) and now by trickery.
