This will be a debate focusing on proving Jesus is the Jewish messiah.
Pro as a Christian will argue for why Jesus is not only the messiah, but also God from the Scriptures.

We will each have 4 rounds to argue, Pro will begin with opening arguments in Round 1, and give closing arguments in round 4. Con will begin in round 2, and end in round 5.

My opening statement is that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah in the Scriptures. I will not only reference the New Testament, but iI will also use writings of the Talmud, Midrash, Targums, and other Jewish writings which establish the Messiah as being divine and the only possible candidate lies within the person of Jesus Christ. I will also demonstrate how Jesus never contradicted the Torah or Pentateuch, but rather fulfilled it. The points of which i will be focusing on in my argument are as follows:

In Round 2, we will debate the tri-unity of God
Round 3 will be centered on the nature of the Messiah
Round 4 will be on Jesus' divinity

I am looking forward to this debate.

I wrote "I wrote "Pro will begin with opening arguments in Round 1", but apparently Pro did not realize/understand this, so the debate is being redone here :

I wrote "Pro will begin with opening arguments in Round 1".
I suggest that we redo this, but this time you send the challenge.
I'd also like to suggest that we have 2 separate debates, one on whether Jesus is the Messiah, and another on Jesus' divinity. (I don't mind doing them together in one debate if that's what you want.)
