Christ is neither christain nor Jew. He is the messiah for Christ sake. So after what he has been preaching since, some comments here are just baffling.

Funny. It is said that a Christian is one who follows Christ. In other word, Jesus (Christ) is not a Christian but One followed by a Christian.

If you say He's a Christian, it simply implies that He's not the Christ but a follower of Christ. And yes, Jesus is a Jew.

*facepalm*

I didn't imply that Jesus was a Christian if that's what you're thinking. OP mistook being a Jew for being a Judaist, and I was simply correcting him, that is all.

Jesus Christ was jew and not a Christian. He's the author of our faith doesn't make Him one of us. Being Jewish doesn't equate to the fact that your religion is Judaism because that's the misunderstanding that'd make one confused. There are jewish Christians for example. It's like me being Nigerian and a Christian.

Being Christian is more like an identity thing, if there was a way we could be identified as Christ followers without attaching a name to it we'd still remain His and make heaven.

"Moses and Muhummed brought new laws and new regulations for their people. Moses
not only gave the Ten Commandments to the Israelites, but a very comprehensive
ceremonial law for the guidance of his people. Muhummed comes to a people steeped in
barbarism and ignorance. They married their step-mothers; they buried their daughters
alive; drunkenness, adultery, idolatry, and gambling were the order of the day. Gibbon
describe the Arabs before Islam in his "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire", THE
HUMAN BRUTE, ALMOST WITHOUT SENSE, IS POORLY DISTINGUISHED FROM THE REST OF
THE ANIMAL CREATION.' There was hardly anything to distinguish between the "man" and
the "animal" of the time; they were animals in human form.

"From this abject barbarism, Muhummed elevated them, in the words of Thomas Carlysle,
"into torch-bearers of light and learning. 1 'TO THE ARAB NATION IT WAS AS A
BIRTH FROM DARKNESS INTO LIGHT. ARABIA FIRST BECAME ALIVE BY MEANS OF
IT. A POOR SHEPHERD PEOPLE, ROAMING UNNOTICED IN ITS DESERTS SINCE THE
CREATION OF THE WORLD. SEE, THE UNNOTICED BECOMES WORLD NOTABLE, THE
SMALL HAS GROWN WORLD-GREAT. WITHIN ONE CENTURY AFTERWARDS ARABIA
WAS AT GRANADA ON ONE HAND AND AT DELHI ON THE OTHER. GLANCING IN
VALOUR AND SPLENDOUR, AND THE LIGHT OF GENIUS, ARABIA SHINES OVER A
GREAT SECTION OF THE WORLD. ..." The fact is that Muhummed gave his people a Law
and Order they never had before.

As regards Jesus, when the Jews felt suspicious of him that he might be an impostor with
designs to pervert their teachings, Jesus took pains to assure them that he had not come
with a new religion - no new laws and no new regulations. I quote his own words:
'THINK NOT THAT I AM COME TO DESTROY THE LAW, OR THE PROPHETS: I AM
NOT COME TO DESTROY, BUT TO FULFIL. FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, TILL
HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS, ONE JOT OR ONE TITLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM
THE LAW, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.' (Mathew 5:17-18). In other words he had not come
with any new laws or regulation he came only to fulfil the old law. This what he gave the
Jews to understand- unless he was speaking with the tongue in his cheek trying to bluff the
Jews into accepting him as a man of God and by subterfuge trying to ram a new religion
down their throats. No! This Messenger of God would never resort to such fo ul means to
subvert the Religion of God. He himself fulfilled the laws. He observed the commandments
of Moses, and he respected the Sabbath. At no time did a single Jew point a finger at him to
say, 'why don't you fast' or 'why don't you wash your hands before you break
bread', which charges they always levied against his disciples, but never against Jesus. This
is because as a good Jew he honoured the laws of the prophets who preceded him. In short,
he had created no new religion and had brought no new law like Moses and Muhummed.
