    Good answer, Sid. The thing is, Jesus ushered in the Gospel message...something the Jews had not heard before. This new teaching was very different than the Mosaic Laws of the Old Covenant. Jesus also claimed to be the Son of God and the Messiah.

    Why don't you take a moment...look it up, and educate yourself in a discipline other than flippancy.
