Jews have traditionally seen Jesus as one of a number of false messiahs who have appeared throughout history.[1] Jesus is viewed as having been the most influential, and consequently the most damaging of all false messiahs.[citation needed] However, since themessiah does not take center stage in Judaism,[citation needed] the total rejection of Jesus as either messiah or deity in Judaism has never been a central issue for Judaism. Judaism has never accepted any of the claimed fulfillments of prophecy that Christianity attributes to Jesus. Judaism also forbids the worship of a person as a form of idolatry, since the central belief of Judaism is the absolute unity and singularity of God.[2][3] Jewish eschatology holds that the coming of the Messiah will be associated with a specific series of events that have not yet occurred, including the return of Jews to their homeland and the rebuilding of The Temple, an era of peace[4]and understanding during which “the knowledge of God” fills the earth,[5] and since Judaism holds that none of these events occurred during the lifetime of Jesus, he is not a candidate for messiah…………….
