For Reflection/Discussion: Jewish people sometimes wonder, "How could anyone believe in Jesus?" while Christians may wonder, "How could anyone not believe in Jesus?" What accounts for those different perspectives? If a Jewish friend were to ask you why you believe in Jesus, what would you tell them? Would your friend find your answer convincing? Why or why not? What does Jesus mean when he says, Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them? In what ways, if any, did Jesus fulfill the Messianic expectations of the Jewish people? In what was did he disappoint them? Read Isaiah 53. Who, in your judgment, is Isaiah 53 describing? Are there other ways of interpreting the text? Are they convincing?
