The Jewish faith indoctrinates the coming of the Messiah to establish such a Kingdom, so the argument that the Messiah has already come and he was Jesus Christ is not congruent with the lady's logic you have posted.
Or has it been corrupted by the wolves in sheep camouflage ?

Yes, the Jews are still waiting for the promised Messiah. There are a number of requirements for the Messiah in Judaism. Like being a descendent of both Kings David and Solomon; to be a great leader and knowledgeable of the Torah. There is more online I can find for you later. It's interesting the differences and similarities between religions.
There are books called the Holy Bible that you can buy from book stores, and there was a council of the Catholic Church that decided on a canon that included the Old Testament books, but the Christian Bible is the New Testament. The Old Testament is a sort of appendix so people can see where some of the quotes in the NT come from.
That's why the complete Bible includes both the Old Testament and the New Testament.
Obviously God has been around for as long as people have existed, so God was working in the world during OT times. God could inspire the writers to say things that could later be recalled by Jesus and used by him in certain circumstances. Despite all of that Jesus does not endorse the religion of his day, nor does he even recognize that it had any sort of proper understanding of who or what God was.
They both have the same God . . .

Jesus died. Like almost two thousand years ago. nobody has seen him since. Save the rogue appearance in grilled cheese sandwiches or in the imaginations of children.
According to Jewish tradition the lineage of Kingship is inherited paternally ONLY.
In order for J-man to be considered a true Jewish King, his father would have had to been a royal scion.
But wait.... immaculate conception!
By the law of the times a bastard baby born into a un-consumated marriage would not be eligible for Kingship, let alone marriage into the general population.
Many false messiahs have tried to steer the Jews here and there, Jesus, Sabbatai Tzvi, and others in more recent times, yet for all their promises, here we are. The world still sucks. evil men still control everything. Nothing has changed. Millions killed in Jesus name by the church over the millenia. Witch trials, burning at the stake, crusades, the world is flat or i will kill you campaigns in Jesus' name.
How anyone can ever convert to Christianity because it makes sense is beyond my understandingedit on 25-6-2013 by dashen because: (no reason given)
