You say "According to Kabbalists, Jesus was sent to this world to bring the redemption to the pagan nations by sharing the true soul of the Torah, the Kabbalah."

But Jesus says,"I was sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to their dogs." "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces" All these things clearly shows that mission of Jesus was exclusively for Jews only. When Jesus sent the apostles he commanded them "Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, preach this message: 'The kingdom of heaven is near.' Acts.11:19 says"Now those who had been scattered by the persecution in connection with Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, telling the message only to Jews". It shows the first Christians meticulously followed the instruction of Jesus.

Not only that before the death of Jesus he prayed for Israel only to the God of Israel. SeeJohn 17:9,"I pray for them ( Israel) I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified."

Another most important thing to be noted is that Jesus told every thing in parables not make his message simple to the hearers but with a very peculiar intention that only Jews could understand its real meaning and the Gentiles should not understand it. See Jesus said to the Jews ,""The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you( Israel) , but not to them ( Gentiles)

Then why or how can you say "Jesus was sent to this world to bring the redemption to the pagan nations by sharing the true soul of the Torah, the Kabbalah" ?

Now there is a controversy going on about a book “Kosher Jesus” written by a Jewish Rabbi. Truth about Jesus is more amazing than “Kosher Jesus” says. Jesus is the most misunderstood person whoever lived on earth. Jews and Christians agree on one thing about Jesus that Jesus claimed he is the messiah. But the most astonishing truth about Jesus is that Jesus didn't claim he is the messiah. Not only that Jesus told the Jews that they should not believe any individual who claim he is the messiah. He told the Jews no individual would come as the messiah, who or what would come is the kingdom of god.

Jesus told the Jews to always remain as Jews facing all the
persecutions awaiting them and prepared to accept the Kingdom since it
is not known when it will come. The contemporary Jews expected Jesus is their messiah but were disappointed that He didn't overthrow the Romans and declare himself King, like the Messiah was supposed to do. So they
rejected Jesus saying he is a failed messiah and failed to understand his message.

On the other hand, some the Jews found their messiah in Jesus and interpreted words of Jesus and Bible in such a way to make others also to
believe Jesus is the messiah and son of God. The Jews who say Jesus is
the failed messiah and the Jews later became Christians who believe
and preach Jesus is the Christ and son of God both went wrong in
understanding the message of Jesus.

The word messiah has no such meaning as “Savior“. Messiah simply means “anointed one”. But when the Jews started to give a meaning “savior” for the word messiah there they started to give wrong interpretation of Bible words. Yahweh is the only savior of Israel and there is no other savior for Israel according to Bible.

Jewish belief in a messiah in the sense “savior king” lies in the promise God gave to David. In fact the promise God gave to David is conditional one. And sons of David many times failed to fulfill that condition. so God is not bound to keep his promise. But Jews inadvertently believe that the promise God gave to David is an unconditional one and that belief led the Jews to believe God is bound to provide them a super king “Messiah” from the sons of David. This wrong interpretation of Bible words and belief in a Christ culminated in Christian religion.

Hence a different interpretation of New Testament is necessary to reveal the real Jesus who questioned the Jewish tradition and who prophesied no individual would come as messiah but who or what would come is the kingdom of God.

I have written a different interpretation for New Testament titled " Truth Hidden in the Gospels Revealed ". It is not yet published. I would like to present it before Bible scholars for their examination and would like to get their constructive criticism.

I have not read the book Kosher Jesus , so I am not able to com­ment on the book. But it is heard it offer a bold new vision of Jesus, a Jew­ish patriot mur­dered by Rome for his strug­gle on behalf of his peo­ple against Roman bru­tal­ity and pagan­ism. Jesus is the most mis­un­der­stood per­son who ever lived on earth. Truth about Jesus is more amaz­ing than what Boteach says. Let Kosher Jesus be a first step to reveal the hid­den truths about. Jesus.

“Before God sends a new ill­ness to the Jews, He has already pro­vided the cure” goes a Jew­ish say­ing. God pro­vided Moses to lib­er­ate Jews from the servi­tude of Egypt.. Like Amos and Hosea who came before the destructio­n of Israel, we hear the voice of Jesus some sev­enty years before the destructio­n of Judea and Jerusalem tem­ple. Is it log­i­cal to think that God failed to pro­vide a prophet before the destructio­n of the king­dom of Judea and scat­ter­ing of the Jews all over the earth? Here comes the impor­tance of Jesus.

The contempora­ry Jews expected Jesus is the Mes­siah. Main func­tion of Mes­siah is to bring peace. But by stating,””­Do not sup­pose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Mt.10:34.J­esus told the Jews he is not the mes­siah. Jews wanted a Mes­siah not some body bring­ing “sword”. So they refused to hear Jesus.

Thus the prophecy of Ezekiel was ful­filled “ I am send­ing you to the chil­dren of Israel (2:3). You shall speak My words to them (3:4) whether they hear or whether they refuse, yet they will know that a prophet has been among them.But the house of Israel will not lis­ten to you, (3:5–7). Surely, had I sent you to the gen­tiles they could have lis­tened to you”. Jesus did exactly this. As prophesied by Ezekiel, Jews dutifully Rejected Jesus.But the gentiles who didn't know the language of Jesus accepted him even as son of God.

Con­tem­po­rary Jews failed to under­stand his mes­sage and rejected Jesus as a failed mes­siah. Jews and Chris­tians agree on one thing, both of them believe Jesus claimed he is the mes­siah. In fact Jesus never claimed he is the mes­siah. He ques­tioned the cen­turies old Jew­ish tra­di­tion that a mes­siah will be come in the lin­eage of David. Not only that Jesus told the Jews not to believe any one come calm­ing he is the mes­siah. Jesus told the Jews, no individual would come as Messiah as they expect, who or what will come is the kingdom of God. There is no won­der if the edu­cated ortho­dox Jews wanted to elim­i­nate Jesus who said no individual would come as the messiah as they expect.

Ordi­nary Jews could not under­stand Jesus, but hear­ing He is preach­ing about king­dom of God the believed he is the expected mes­siah and they flocked around him. Romans also heard Jews talk­ing about Jesus as their Mes­siah– King. They caught Jesus and cru­ci­fied him and put his accu­sa­tion ” Jesus the king of Jews”.

It is time for the Jews who reject Jesus because of misunderst­anding to reassess Jesus.

Yes Jesus said "The Kingdom of God is already WITHIN you" . But don't you know to whom Jesus said so?
Jesus said it to the Jews.(Luke 18:20-21) Daniel also says," "In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever" (Daniel 2:44) Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be handed over to the saints, the people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.' "This is the end of the matter.(Daniel. 7:27-28)

Jesus told the Jews," Do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." (Mathew6:32,33)

It is time to understand message of Jesus in the right perspective.

Jesus didn't claim he is the messiah. When Peter said to Jesus you are the messiah Jesus strictly commanded them “You should tell no one that he was Jesus the Christ". Jesus told the Jews not to believe any individual who claims he is the messiah. Not only that Jesus told the Jews no individual would come as the messiah as they expect, but who or what will come is the kingdom of God.

Jesus told the Jews to always remain as Jews facing all the persecutions awaiting them and prepared to accept the Kingdom since it is not known when it will come. The Jews who expected Jesus is their messiah were disappointed that He didn't overthrow the Romans and declare himself King, like the Messiah was supposed to do. So they rejected Jesus saying he is a failed messiah and they failed to understand his message.

The Jews who say Jesus is the failed messiah and the Jews ( later became Christians) who believe and preach Jesus is the Christ and son of God both went wrong in understanding the message of Jesus.

The word messiah has no such meaning as “Savior “. The Jews interpreted that word as savior and there they started the wrong interpretation of Bible. Yahweh is the savior of Israel and there is no other. Promise given to David and Salomon is conditional one. And sons of David many times failed to fulfill the condition so God is not bound to keep his promise.But Jews inadvertently made the promise God gave to David an unconditional one and it led them to believe God is bound to provide them a super king “ Messiah” from the sons of David.
