    It means Jesus did not fulfill the requirements or expectations that the Jews had for the Messiah

    No....Not necessarily.
    It just means that they were expect the return of Joshua or a Moses like figure, who would free them from Roman Colonization/ Bondage/Oppression.

    I believe We are all Sons and Daughters of God and potential prophets.
    The Jews did not accept Jesus as a Prophet because in some of their ancient writing he is thought of as a Egyptian taught Sorcerer and his Paternity was and is still being question by them. Some thinking he is the Child of adultery or bastard of a Roman soldier.

    They maybe anti-Jesus not sure about them being anti-Christ. Christ means anointed one, and there probable have been many anointed souls in Judaism.

    Yes so it is said in the Christian Holy Script but even the present day followers of John the Baptist question his authenticity, as John the Baptist himself did so many years ago.

    Interesting... writings mention some Jews were followers of John the Baptist, and saw him as a prophet, and rejected Jesus.

    In essence, these (Mandeans) would be considered "anti-christ"
    I wonder if these were the "Jews" (Mandeans) that rejected "Jesus".

    I do not believe in the New Testament
    As A Rasta I know and continue to study the New Testament, so I know the New Testament better everyday.
    We are all Sons of God, so yes I accept Jesus as a Son of God

    You and other like yourself may so consider then, but not I.
    Yes they reject Jesus as The Christ Messiah....within their reasoning.

    I don't, but those that would attempt to claim that someone that does not accept "Jesus" is an "anti-christ", would also have to accept all the others as well.

    "if a person denies that Jesus is the Messiah, that person is an antichrist..."

    One needs to define what is a Messiah, if one defines a messiah as some one who saves or delivers a people from oppression, then Jesus did not save the Jews his people from Roman oppression....so many cannot consider him a messiah in that context.

    Now the word Christ is a title usually given to one who is anointed, so being an antichrist is a misnomer unless the word christ is given a new and different meaning especially exclusive to one individual.
