Christianity or Judaism?

Both religions have a lot of similarities, but the one thing that makes both of them differ is Jesus. Assuming one of them is the correct religion, which one is correct?

First of all, the text describes many prophets who predicted Jesus as described in the New Testament, yet the Jews believe that Jesus hasn't come yet. Jews and Christians share the same set of books called the Old Testament if you're a Christian, or the Torah if you're a Jew. The problem lies in when the books were compiled. The Bible was compiled in 1611, and it contains the set of 66 books that the organizers at the time found to be divine. If Judaism is going to reject some books over others, then what grounds do they have to say that the Torah is or isn't divine? If the Bible is the word of God, then it should be consistent with other books that are also the word of God. The New Testament is full of references to the Old Testament, and Jesus even said that he came to fulfill the law, not destroy it. The point is, if Jews can dismiss a few books because they don't believe they are divine, then they are effectively destroying their own worldview.

I pick Christianity due to it fullfilling Judaism. Making a full on thesis of why might take a while. I used to do alot of religious debates on here but found them to be unfullfilling. You can make a rock solid argument to most Atheists, and they'll not be intellectual enough to even grasp the argument.

I does fulfill Judaism but Jews don't want to accept that.

Well, yeah, but I mostly wanted to see how Excon would react since he/she is a Jew supposedly.

This honestly made me laugh. Not because it's stupid, but because it's so TRUE.

Hello D:

Soooo, the Torah is around 6,000 years old... But, Jews MUST believe a book that was written 4,000 years later, or they can't believe the Torah...

Is that your belief???

Dude! That's STUPID STUPID STUPID

The Bible was not written 4,000 years after the Torah. The Bible was compiled in 1611, which means that it is a collection of 66 books that were written over a period of 1,600 years. The Old Testament, which is the portion of the Bible that is shared by both Christians and Jews, was written over a period of 1,000 years. So, the Jews have no reason to dismiss the Bible as divine simply because it was written after the Torah. And yes, you can't believe in part of the Bible, but not the entire thing, if you want to maintain a consistent worldview. Jews don't have to believe in the New Testament, but if they don't, they are effectively rejecting parts of their own holy text.

John 14:6 Sayeth Jesus unto them: I AM the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE, no man cometh to the Father, but by me. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth, and believe in thine heart that Jesus is LORD, and God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 5:10 says we are saved by Jesus' Life, not by oiurs.

They’re both a bunch of bullshit! And the biggest bullshit of all time is the Catholic Church!

Honestly, what's the point of being on this debate if you can't advocate for one or the other?

I clearly said: "Assuming one of them is correct"

If you can't assume that, then you have no place in this debate.
