The News Rejected Christ

I received a response from my previous post:

Is there a point to New Testament scripture then or is it all Garbage? It clearly states in Romans 6:23 the wages if sin is death. But the GIFT of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ the More. The News rejected Christ. To this day most so not aknowlege him as God and therefore reject the free gift if his atonement for sin.

My response-

The news rejected Christ?  Who is the news?

Is The New Testament Garbage?  I would say it is a message of love that can guide people to find God in their fellow man.  You can call it Garbage if you wish.

Truly though, I wish you would not answer my question with a question. I want to know what the purpose of God choosing Christians and not his other followers of other faiths?

I put myself in the shoes of Jewish people alive during the time of Jesus. Christians people today like you have 2000 years of events to back up your belief in Jesus. A Bible and a nearby church to go to.  As well as many other believers all over the world.

A Jew 2000 years ago would not have that. They would have their faith and be trying to follow it. They might have heard of Jesus, but there were many other people at that time claiming to be the Messiah. You say they rejected Jesus, but they did not have a Bible to teach them, did they?  They had the Torah (Which Jesus told them to read.)

The Jewish people did not really reject Jesus. They might have hung him on the cross, but it was a violent time. The case could only be made (I think) that the Jewish people in the crowd calling out Crucify him! Crucify him! rejected him.  It was not the whole Jewish nation there. Most did not know of Jesus at the time.

If you still think the Jewish people rejected Jesus, then by that logic, the people that protested Trump (for example) would have to be extrapolated to say that everyone (you) were against Trump.  Or many people wanted Martin Luther King to come to a terrible, violent end. They rejected him.  Did they speak for you?
