" "Whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ" "Whoever denies the Father and the Son, this is the Antichrist" "No one who denies the Son has the Father," "But whoever confesses the Son has the Father as well" (1 John -23)"There is neither Jew nor Greek ..you are all one in Jesus Christ." "For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ...And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants, heirs to the promise." Galatians -29"Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father, the one who will accuse you is Moses, in whom you have placed your hope.There are several reasons why Judaism rejects the notion that Jesus was the messiah.However, the main objection to his ‘messiahship” is that he simply did not qualify.The reason was because those people worshipped idols, not because of race; the Hebrews, Amorites, Canaanites, etc. The apostle Paul encouraged Christians not to marry unbelievers (2 Corinthians ), but here again, the reason was religious, not racial.
Some verses (Exodus -16, 2 Corinthians , etc.) were quoted in part or otherwise out of context in an attempt to show that God opposed interracial marriage.As with all family members these situations should be handled respectfully and delicately.Start by encouraging your relative to be open minded to exploring more about Judaism. Remind them that they are part of a long and rich heritage and their decision impacts future generations. Judaism teaches that non-Jews should believe in God and accept and practice the 7 Noahide commandments.There is nothing in the Bible saying it is wrong to date or marry a person of a different race.There are a few incidental mentions of race in the Bible (e.g., that Ethiopian's skin was different, Jeremiah ), but there is nothing saying one race is superior to another.
Paul speaking in past allegory of the children of Isaac, son of free Sarah -- to the children of Ishmael, son of slave Hagar; compared in Paul's time to unbelieving Jews and believing Christians; and the same Jewish persecution in our modern times.
