It says in Matthew 1 and Luke 3 that Jesus is a descendant of Abraham. Abraham was the Father of the Jewish people. It also lists King David, also Jewish. Jesus was almost pure Jewish. Also, as seen in Luke 2, Jesus' mother and father (I personally believe Jesus was born of a virgin, but I do not know what my opponent's position, so hey.) were from Galilee and Nazareth, Jewish regions.

So Jesus was born to Jewish parents, in a Jewish city, in Israel. Yeah... He was Jewish.

Jesus is also called Rabbi over and over. Only Jews can be Rabbis in ancient Judaism. So those around Him knew He was Jewish.

Ummm bro, what religion did Jesus found? Jewishanity? Nope Christianity!

Jesus wasnt a blood of the seed of david. Jesus was born of the virgin mary, marry not jewish! Joesph was but that doesnt mean anything because Joesph didnt impregnate mary. Mary was a Nazarene not a jew. Jesus was God does God have a race? Nope. Rabbi just meant teacher, they didnt have to be jewish. A gentile could be rabbi.

I'm not even sure I want to bother with this anymore...

"Divine Revelation" as a source... "Math"... What the Heck?

Seriously... I'm just going to extend my arguments and throw a few things out there.

"Jesus wasnt a blood of the seed of david." Exact Quote

Matthew 1:1
"This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham:"

Says so right smack dab at the beginning of the NT. Jesus was Jewish.

"Mary was a Nazarene not a jew."

Does my opponent even know basic anything about Jews? Nazareth was an area in Israel populated with poor Jews. It was kind of the Jewish slums.

Hey, if any of ya'll would mind contacting airmax about this, that would be great, he has not done anything about it yet, I know he's probably busy, and I don't want to seem like I'm whining.

Maybe you could contact airmax and see if he could do something about it. Wish I would've saw this before it ended.

I honestly wish I could vote for justin.graves, but DDO policy states that I need three completed debates.

If this ends up in a tie (just because there are no voters), then that would be horrible.
