    Jesus was Jewish, the Jewish people are God's chosen people. So, we have to consider all of these factors.

      God is not flesh as man.

      No, Jesus was Deity in the flesh.

      Incorrect. The Jewish people are YHWH's people. "God" is not the name of the Jewish deity. The idea of using the word "god" with a capital 'G' is rather clever and potentially deceptive as one would be unable to use the name of their lord in vain.

    John 4:24 KJV

    "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."

    In Abraham's seed shall all kindreds of the earth be blessed, as written in the Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi 15:18, "Wherefore, our father hath not spoken of our seed alone, but all the house of Israel, pointing to the covenant which should be fulfilled... read more

    According to the Bible, God is the King of the Jews!

      The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, "Do not write 'The King of the Jews,' but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews."   John 19:21  About Jesus - in flesh

      Technically this is incorrect. There are no gods named God, except for that of which deity's name has been conceived by human error. YHWH did not claim that his name was 'god' with a capital 'g.' He stated "I am the lord, your god."

    Let's say "thousands of years have passed" and humans still ask the same question, "Is God a Jewish God. This discourse deals with the subject "in a sense." read more

    God is neither....He is the Master, pure and simple!

    God is God. I don't believe God belongs to any one religion.

    when Jesus came to earth, it was through the Jewish bloodline.  God is God.  He has no religious affiliation.

      If that is so, then why does the god known as "God" affiliate himself with modern Christians and Muslims?

    You have asked a great question, as can be noted by the comments that are receiving. It is wonderful that everybody has their own "take" on this question. I will be writing about 500 more words about this later on. I am a little busy, at the moment, to give this question my best consideration. However, I will write more, as I said, a little later.

    The Almighty is none of the Above. The KING of Kings and LORD of Lords has said His religion is one that cares for orphans and widows.

    By the way...how can God be Jewish when He is not a human being?

    1. dianetrotter profile image72
      dianetrotterposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      He existed before His creation.  He cannot be considered part of what He created.

      YHWH is a Jew by default, in the way that the founding fathers of the USA became Americans when they laid down the law and broke their ties to the British Empire. YHWH laid down Jewish laws, therefore YHWH is Jewish.

    Technically YHWH is Jewish.

    From the vantage point of a Jew, YHWH's name is technically not "God."  Rather he refers to himself as Yahweh "The lord, your god."

    From the vantage point of a Christian, YHWH is not the god who refers to himself as "God" per se.

    Naming the Judeo-Christian deity, "God," with a capital 'G' is a human error. I'm certain that YHWH wants no part in it.

    This may be of some importance to you if you really believe in a creative intelligence correlating to Judeo-Christian (and Muslim) beliefs as you would also have to undoubtedly believe in all the other details that come along with said faiths, such as the existence of angels and demons. More importantly one should note that when demons are said to visit people they all too often want you to call them "God." It is upon accepting to refer to a demon as "God" or "god" that you then allow them to have possesion over you.

    But hey, what do I know? I only study the nature and various doctrines of such religions. From my studies and inquiries I have become a Gnostic and I do not call out to my god as "God," because I find it to be vain and futile. If one is to dedicate their life to such a religion bearing some or all resemblence to Judeo-Christianity, one should learn the name of their deity before passing over to avoid any potential mix ups when they reach the after life.

    Christian, Muslim, Hindu- it is all hocus pocus.

    If one were to presume that the god, YHWH, is Jewish they would be correct in so much as he is the one who laid down the laws and creed governing what is commonly referred to as Judaism, thereby rendering himself as a Jew. It is the equivalent of the founding fathers of America laying down the law of America thereby rendering themselves as Americans rather than British, French, etcetera.

    Let me finally reiterate, that there is no god named "God" in any faith when you look upon their foundations, except in the case of human error. The bibles, Qurans, Torah, etcetera that are published today are not the same books they were publishing yesterday- I would know, I was there, and so were many of you.
    I blame such human errors, or deviations, on the current publishers and producers of Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Would it be wishful thinking to believe that at least some of you understand?
