Christians: Can Jews enter Heaven?

#1MeanGirlGamerPosted 7/24/2011 6:24:30 PM
Since Jews do not accept Jesus Christ, but are supposed to have a pre-existing covenant with God...? Is it possible for both Jews and Christians to be saved through different methods?

I often hear that Christ the only way to salvation, but isn't it true that the Jewish people had a pre-existing covenant with God before the New Testament? Is that still in place?

Only if they were faithful and died before Christ was born. But after that, no, they would have had to accept Jesus.

Since Jesus, no that covenant is not in place.

The old covenant has been fulfilled. The Roman Catholics say that the Old Covenant is still salvific for Jews, but since we have no Temple, it's kind of a moot point.

Ultimately, no one can say for sure who is to be saved but who is not. But if a repentant Canaanite, a centurion, a Samaritan and an adulteress can be saved, I don't see why an upright Jew would be excluded from the Kingdom of Heaven.

I should think so seeing as Jesus himself was a Jew.

Haven't you heard of the organization called "Jews For Jesus"?? They've grown very big over the years.

You mean that scam thought up by gentiles to convert Jews? I read a book by one of them once (I mistook the star of David and the surname Roth on the cover for something useful). It was so ignorant of Judaism I nearly cried.

I'm quite sure we're talking about followers of Judaism here.

A true Jew by God's definition is anyone who has become saved. So...I'll go with yes.

I know who you are talking about, and their a joke.

And to CIA,

No a true Jew is one who is a descendant of Jacob through the matriarchal line. His ancestors witnessed the giving of the Torah. Or it can be a person who is the descendant of a Kosher women convert.

I'm quite sure if a Jew accepts Jesus as the "Messiah", he is a Christian, not a Jew. He is Jewish by ethnicity, not by religion.
