Jewish Tanakh

Jewish Tanakh

Jewish Tanakh"So who should Conservatives outside your religion vote for? ... I happen to be Jewish..."

Since you are Jewish, please start with your Jewish Tanakh , which has the same content as our Old Testament. Did you know that the Jewish Tanakh prophesies about the crucifixion of the Messiah? For example, Psalm 22:14-18 of the Tanakh reads:

"I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it has melted within me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue clings to my jaws; you have brought me to the dust of death. For dogs have surrounded me; the congregation of the wicked has enclosed me. They pierced my hands and my feet; I can count all my bones. They look and stare at me. They divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots."

Here is another passage about the Messiah from the Jewish Tanakh, this time from Isaiah:

"But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon him, and by his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all... Therefore I will divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul unto death, and he was numbered with the transgressors, and he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."
(Isaiah 53:5-6 &12)

Non-Christians have their everlasting destiny to worry about before their votes, and as a Jew you have the advantage of your Tanakh, whose Ketuvim and Nevi'im prophesied about the Messiah as above.

To confirm these and other prophesies about the Messiah, please read the New Testament for yourself. If the entire New Testament seems like too big a taboo to breach, just read or study the Gospel of John to start.
